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.
