It all depends how cool you are under fire.
I prefer the .45.
100% flawed. For sooo many reasons.
There's no solid logic to the effectiveness of calibers.
My detective friend witnessed a man shot 5x center mass with a 45 survive, yet the 22 to the chest was DOA.
It comes down to this... a 22 is a HORRIBLE cantidate for primary defensive weapon. It honestly sounds like the guy isn't ready to carry at all.
I'd rather have a pointy stick than a 22 in close quarters.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?
Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
