Default Do you really want to trust a .22 or 25

I have a .380 Kahr Fiocci Extrema that have a hornady xtp jhp and it is a perfect size for a pocket, but if you are talking about a small person who is adverse to recoil the the .32 tomcat is still better than a 25 and more reliable than a .22 rim fire. Anything is better than nothing, but if you have to use a firearm it is better to be safe than sorry.if size didn't matter we would all carry .45's or larger.

Like it or not, .25acp is obtainable here, Last week my search for rimfire ammo in Anchorage and Fairbanks Alaska was limited and didnt find any .22LR or .22 Mag, only limited ammounts of .17HMR in a couple places, clerks reported that what limited amounts that did make it on store shelves at opening for business that day was gone by noon.

You couldn't be more wrong!
In addition to very adequate penetration and ease of carry, guns like the Browning .25, the Beretta 950, the Bernardelli, Astra Cub are very good weapons.
There is always someone who has to jump in to any .25 thread and tell everyone how smart he is because he knows the .25 will just make someone mad. Any handgun cartridge has the potential to "just make someone mad" - or, to kill someone instantly.

I have a Beretta .22 Bobcat that my daughter keeps at college. It works all the time, and no, it isn't the greatest self defense caliber, but it's small and concealable. She likes it, shoots it well, and that is all that matters.

It is also the loudest flippin' gun I've ever owned. If any gun needed a silencer, that would be my pick. Someone getting shot at would think that it's a Casull. Go figure...

I suspect that the better quality .25's would perform better, I was give a beat up Lorcin Model L25, it has trouble working its way through a full mag without a couple belly ache's, as was free I have not tried a replacement mag to see if itd improve its jambing every 3-4 shots.

for a pocket pistol a Davis DM.22Mag is a potent pocket blaster, with its steel n potmetal construction, not too shabby .22mag ctg is no slouch, the trigger pull is as about the stoutest ive ever encountered on a handgun with the way it fires youd have to really work on getting it to discharge in your pocket. For a stack barrel pocket gun it will go bang when you push the cross bolt safety and ear the hammer back and muster herculean strength to pull the trigger, its passable accurate for a pocket cheapie pistol, at 10 feet it can easily hit a saucer size target if bothering to use its sights.

I have a Beretta 21 in 22lr it is a suprisingly reliable little pocket gun is pretty accurate and is fun to shoot. I would also suggest looking at some of the NAA mini revolvers. they make some with actual sights on em now and micro target grips you can get em in 22lr, 22wmr, and convertibles that shoot both. On of the little target sighted ones is on my toy list I have one of the no rear sight models that I put a little laser on a year or so ago it is suprisingly accurate with its folding pocket grip it is the smallest easiest carreid gun I own. Slow to load though. They Even make a model that has a swing out cylinder I think thats the one I want next. There ya go thats my 2cents worth.
