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.
