I read an article where I think Israel was using 10/22s for crowd control BC they thought is wasn't lethal. They were shooting people in the legs...needless to say after several died they quit using them.

A pissed off groundhog and a few beavers is the biggest critters Ive killed with a .22lr. About 30 yrs ago when I was a teenager my sister who is 15yrs older than me shot and killed a doe in the yard with a .22 revolver. She shot her from the kitchen window. She has always been a good shot.
