Ok, young nuts, I'm going to be easy on you.
First, there is no side in the .22lr for taking large game. Is it possible, yes. Is it ethical (I don't expect you to understand 'ethics') no. Is it legal, heck no.
As for being 14 years old and knowing anything about providing for a family...well if you have children, then you went wrong a long time ago. If you are responible for a mortgage, bills, food, moral teachings, etc. then your opinion is relevant. As a child, you may have some idea of the 'long haul' of life, but you do not have real experience of such.
As for taking Texas deer with a .22lr, heck those little creatures there can be taken with a wrist rocket. I think I could effectively throw a rock and take those itty bitties. Is it ethical or legal, no.
Part of growing up is the realization of life's responsibilities, and the proper way to take on those responsibilities.
That is all. Now, get out of the house and get some exercise.
Skullcrusher, you are evil, sick, demented, twisted- and my hero!
