Well believe it or not but I tried stingers and they were the first ones to jam on me? I never have had a jam issue with yellow jackets

cutting bullets can cause feed problems. now you seem committed to carrying a 22 for CC, so in reality you are aleady at somewhat of a disadvantage. so my suggestion and what others have sugested is what works well and feeds properly. yes a 22 can and will kill someone as long as proper shot placement is used, but how are you going to get proper shot placement if the gun jams at a crucial moment?

one of two things shuts down a BG in a gun fight, either rapid blood loss from huge holes or shutting down the central nervous system. anything else, and you have a BG that can still do harm to you.

No I'm not committed only to carry this when I wear shorts or jeans going to the store or getting groceries but anywhere else I wear my duty clothes and carry my glock17c with HST 146+p so I'm not committed just to the extent when I'm in my "RELAX" mode.

i see what you're saying. reliability is more important a factor that anything else. a gun jamming up at a crucial moment is a good way to end up dead.

one suggestion and one i agree with is to try out different types of ammo and see how they perform on different materials and use the one that feeds well each and every time the trigger is pulled. secondly pick the most accurate, as i said proper shot placement is going to be crucial is using that small a round.

CNS is everything in shot placement even if a .22 does not kill it will certainly stop them for a while enough for me to get my PDW AK out of the trunk. I use disintegrating rounds for it I believe its compressed tungsten powder core, anyway my SR-22 has never jammed in any round I shot through it even cheap ass golden bullets and armscor ammo? It has been a very reliable weapon and when using yellow jackets it definitely does not jam. The biggest problem for people I see is when they hold there pistol wrong, if you hold your pistol with a thumbs out grip all of the recoil is concentrated on the slide instead of the it coming back into your hands and causing the recoil to make the pistol arch back and causing a FTF or FTE.

I had no choice but to carry a 22 when I first got started. And even worse...It was a Jennings! But you carry the gun you have not the one you are saving up for. I tested a bunch of different ammo. I used to soak phone books in water overnight to do ballistics tests. For me the Velocitor was the most reliable round. The gun would usually cycle them ok. And they penetrated pretty good. They acted more like a solid in my short barrel. They did the job. And it was better than not carrying. But I was glad when I had the money for something bigger.
