JFrame,

You are correct, I forgot that bit! It does give you a lot of respect for that small projectile though.

a 22lr is better than nothing. i see nothing wrong with using it for the home. putting many rounds on target will do the trick. many people have died from the 22lr. would a bigger gun do better? yes, it should. but i have seen many that have been shot with large cal handguns and still drove themself to the doctors. it comes down to shot placement, no matter the size of the gun.

I still wish I had a decent article on Aquila and their exotic rimfire rounds from the ultrafast hollowpoint to the 60 grain sss load

While a .22 IS better than nothing, and there is no doubt that it can kill a man.... but I for one am unwilling to stake my family's life on even the most reliable rimfire cartridge.

I forget who the guy was, but I got them from a seller on Ebay who does custom grips. They were only $50.00.

Actually I think the summary is:

.22LR for home defense is better than no gun at all.

If you are physically and financially able to you should use a bigger gun.

Look at my really cool stuff.

A 22 is for killing squirrels... but when the intruder is close enough you hit him over the head several times with the butt of the gun. You know why I use a 45... because they don't make a 46!

Dump her

Actually I think the diminutive .22 gives you a great excuse to empty the mag. More holes > bigger holes as far as lethality goes I would think.

I shot thousands of .22 LR in formal pistol competition, now and again, hand in the air, for a failure to fire!

The RO checks your reason for the stoppage, nearly always good rim hit with your expensive match pistol, but no bang, so you got to shoot your alibi string.

There are no alibi's allowed at O-dark 30 in your living room.

If a .22LR is all you have, so be it, a .22 that allows an instant clearing of the chamber in the case of a failure to fire, is a good thing, and practice that maneuver, the pump action rifle comes to mind. Keep the chamber clean, wipe the grease off the lead bullets. And shoot them a lot!

No, but .22WM out of a pistol gives you the performance of .22LR out of a rifle.

If we are going to bring up the 22 Magnum it should be noted that the Magnum has a better variety of hunting bullets available than a 22 LR. For penetration I know of no 22 LR that will go as deep as a 22 Magnum 40 grain FMJ. I have shot the 40 grain TMJ through 4 inches of spruce wood. This was out of my old 6.5 inch Single Six. The Winchester 40 grain JHP one of the original loading in the 22 Magnum is one heck of a good bullet. Now if you are talking about one of those 2 inch 22 Magnum snub nosed revolvers I have no experience with their performance. My guess is the Magnum would be a waste in that short of a barrel. It is not like the ammo is designed for the snub handguns like some of the 38 Specials on the market.

With this economy, seems all folks can afford is a .22 to shoot a lot. Unless you go up to a 9mm which is the cheapestest centerfire gun to shoot IMO. As for a .22 we should shoot leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, and post expansion results. I would, but to post pics like that is beyond my technical pay grade.
