Default Israeli Mossad .22 LRS

Thought this article deserved its own post here on the forum:

http://www.tactical-life.com/online/tactical-weapons/israeli-mossad-22-lrs/

Most would consider the .22 well underpowered for self defense,and I would generally agree.With pistols around the same size as even the smallest .22 being available in calibers such as .32acp and .380acp and a bit larger in 9mm and even .40,I don't see any reason for using a .22 for self defense.

But as a specialty caliber its history is quite full of effective usefulness.

Don't discount the "lowly" .22.

They also used silenced versions of the AR-7 to shoot guard dogs and street lights before raids.

.22s do serve their purpose.
