I picked up a box of .22 rimfire Remington Vipers at Dicks Sporting Goods recently and am curious if anybody here has taken small game with this particular round?

One more comment i'd like to make is the number of people I have met recently who have a .22 rifle loaded with 40 grain lead(usually Remington Thunderbolts, or bulk pack stuff) behind the door as an emergency item. A lot of these friends of mine might own a 9mm Hi-Point, or a single shot 12/20 gauge, or a used Ruger 9mm but the majority have 22 rifles, occasionally a .22 pistol, and pump shotguns/single shot's too. I think we members here on these forums are much better armed than most folks out there.
I have seen this guy use a .22 rifle and pop a groundhog in a second-and their neighbor(Hampton Inn, which is in a semi rural setting) was none the wiser. He was in a technically rural enviroment and he had a 80 room hotel 200 feet next to him. My point in my rambles is this-the rimfire is what people end up using in a suprising number of defensive encounters. We all agree its not the best round out there, but where I live, most folks can afford to buy the gun(s), buy the ammo, and actually hit what target they are aiming at. Just some musings thats all...

I am going to try some CCI Velocitors this weekend out of a Ruger 10/22-if the weather holds out. I will look at penetration, accuracy, etc. These rounds can smack HARD for a .22 rimfire...

Having a gun and being able to hit what you're aiming at several times in quick succession is what's most important to me. Had my sister try many different pistols & revolvers for a first gun and she settled on a P22. I wanted her to get something bigger, but felt that in the end it was more important that she had something she was VERY confident with and could make several accurate shots in succession with.....we'll work on moving up in caliber with more training.

Excuse me guys, but has anybody had any experience using CCI Quick-shoks? Supposedly, these are like Stingers that are pre-fragmented into 3 sections.

Thanks!

Want a new .22LR Pistol

CCI Velositors sounds great. Now I want a new .22 Handgun. Berretta 21A, Walther P22, Or the Firestorm 22 ? I have a Buckmark, a Tauras 94. I had a Ruger and didn't like it.

Great concept, but best left for small game. Not nearly enough penetration to be remotely effective for SD.

I have an old 1976 Ruger new model single six... In a true SHTF situation its the first gun i pack up, 22lr ammo is everywhere, a 22lr is better to hunt small game with than a .40, and in an extreme situation you can walk up on the target and with proper shot placement obtain their firearms... also with its heavy construction and 5.5 inch barel you could literally beat the crap out of someone, after shooting then 6 times and never drop one casing!... the 22lr is the most underrated cartridge of all time

.22 rf as a hog load

When I was fifteen back on the farm, a thin, sick pig had to be put down. He weighed about thirty five pounds. At fifteen feet with winchester HP .22 I shot him broadside into the classic lung area behind the front leg. I expected him to drop on the spot with my knowledge at the time.
He however then began running frantically in circles in great distress as you can imagine and a half dozen hits later he was still on his feet until a spine shot quieted him enough for me to then humanely dispatch the poor critter.
I am sorry that I ever experimented on a defensless live animal.
I hunt now, with revolvers, but I "use enough gun" and the proper distance and loads to take the game for food in a merciful fashion.
Hopefully the sight of a weapon would deter a home invader and that none of us ever has to face a decision like that.

You're probably the kind of guy who can hit a quarter with that old Ruger at 25 paces

Pat

Im laughing my ass off at some of the replies. I have heard more tales of the lowly .22lr being used in SD situations than any other caliber out there. And None that I have heard was You got to hit them in the eye man!

Question Would anyone here want to be shot with a .22lr.. I didnt think so!

I had an older gent tell me that his .22lr revolver was like an extended Ice Pick. Would anyone like to be jabbed with an Ice pick.. Ouch! Aim for the head, center of chest.

The .22lr can and will kill an attacker. So might as well aim for the kill or you will be paying for your attackers disabilities for the rest of your life.

Stick in their ear is even funnier.

I've seen several people killed by .22. Not the round I'd pick but if it's what's at hand, use it. A 16-round string out of a Marlin Model 60 is better than harsh words, but if I had a choice, any service-caliber pistol, or even better, 12ga or 5.56mm.

Yea. I believe that .22 would do the trick, but I'd rather put 7.62 in em. Or buckshot.

If you get a chance, shoot some rounds over a chrono and post the results.
