A .22 is much better than nothing, something bigger is better yet. I am a
long gun guy. I own one hand gun my wife owns one. Mine is .45ACP and
hers is a .357 Magnum.
Go bigger if you can, if not something is better than nothing.

May not be lethal, but I'm sure it would stop the fight...
During the Spanish-American War, in the Phillipines, Mori (sp?) tribesman
would get high on some local halucinogenic drug. They could take 6 .38
caliber bullets and keep coming at you and kill you, yes they died afterward,
but they still could kill you first. This experience led the US Military to the
development of the M1911.
No matter what drugs they are on, 1-2 slugs from a .45 knock them down.
