YMMV, but all things considered,

I'd get a CC .22LR, but never a .380.

Because if I'm going to carry a .380, I might as well carry a 9mm.

As stated previously, I'm going to go small, or not at all.

22 revolver? I'd never trust a rim fire auto with my life.

OK I've seen about some of the most irresponsible comments on this thread and someone need to say it. If you "pump" a dozen or so rounds into a person you go from right to preserve your life into the realm of a madman with a gun. it won't matter if it was a. 22 or not the state will charge you and all a jury will here is he shot him 12 TIMES congratulations not even Matlock is getting you out of that one. As someone who has taken the resposinility of carrying a concealed weapon its your obligation to carry a round that if put to use will stop the threat in as few rounds as possible one for the protection of yourself and the protection of others. why because when 300 pound guy on pcp is rushing you your .22 will not keep him from rushing and as you get scared you will probbably loose concentration of where your muzzle is as your finger keeps moving send rounds everywhere. And as has been pointed out they are just as deadly when impacting vital organs of bystanders who will suffer a miserable death. for those who say its not your intent to kill the threat maybe but when you aim at a mans heart what to you think will happen? if you cannot take idea of the possibility of relieving BG of his life please do not carry a weapon. Saying you'd rather your wife carry a 22 rather than a 38 or another round because she could not hit the intended target for fear of the recoil what kind of fear do you think she'll have at the moment she would have to use the weapon. I'd prefer she get formal training prior to even concidering carrying a firearm. As far as the OP original statement the reason for all the variations of 22's that are mirrors of larger caliber guns is if you have the larger caliber firearm and the 22 version it gives you the ability to reduce your ammo costs while still achieving the muscle memory required for those "holy crap" moments when you are carrying the larger caliber firearm. bottom line carry a 22 for self defence and you become more of a threat to yourself and others and if BG doesn't kill you before he eventually dies you will be doing time for at minimum manslaughter for scarring a insufficient caliber for reasonable protection.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Ah, a wee bit too much coffee today, big guy?

Face the truth. ANY time you have to defend

your shoot in court, you're in trouble.


Either the LEOs at the scene feel you acted

irresponsibly, or you get sued by the

dead guys weeping mother, who'll probably be

slobbering all over a

democraptic judge...

I'm going to call Newton's flaming laser sword on this and call it a day. As with most things guns, it's mostly preference.
