I Knew a few guys that where in the Ulster Defence Regiment that where issued with them as a personal protection weapon when of duty a favourite time for IRA terrorists to murder them.

I dont know what the thinking was for issuing .22 for personal protection, at the time civilian's where being targeted by the IRA for doing work for the army cleaners builders ect.

They could get a PPW largest caliber 9mm max rds 25. So why a civilian could get a 9mm but they where issuing the UDR with .22 I dont know.

The Israeli Army used suppressed Ruger 10/22 as sniper rifles

The US military used silenced High Standard 22 handguns in military applications. The government contracted with Remington to produce 22 long rifle ammunition loaded with full metal jacket bullets to comply the Hauge Convention rules. If you will research the Russians case against the spy pilot Francis Gary Powers, you will find on the evidence table a silenced 22 handgun removed from Powers.

Colt Service Model ACE used as marksmanship training aid since prior to WWII.

Didn't the OSS issue some Hi-Standard .22's with integral supressors during WWII?

Isn't .22 rf and service pistol an oxymoron?

Except for the mob?

I may not be the mob, but my .22 pistol sees a lot of service. It is not used as eye candy, but as a tool. Like a good jack knife. Would that be considered a "service pistol"?
