Quite a few years ago, we had a sad incident here in my (then) little town. A distraught ex-boyfriend literally drug this poor girl out of the grocery store where she was working, waving a gun around like a crazy man. Two good samaritans that tried to help were rewarded with death, followed by the poor girl, and finally the gunman took his own life. All this thanks to a single action .22 revolver. Six rounds of .22, four dead. Pretty effective if you ask me. I've wondered many times if an armed citizen, or Bubba with his ought six in the gun rack, could have acted swiftly enough to save any of these people.

I absolutly agree. The .22 LR round is still a potent cartridge regardless of price and size. It is still extremely deadly and will suffice in a budget self defence scenario. And no flames, this is my opinion and if your opinions differ from mine dont freaking critizise me. Peace...

I shot some squirrels last friday with my .22lr hollowpoints. You should have seen the damage. Tiny hole in, but you could drop a quarter through the exit would.

Squirrels weigh between 3 and 4 pounds. Grown men don't.

I'll save my .22 for little critters and my 12guage for bigger critters.
