Hello, I was hoping you could help me? I am looking at a gun for my protection. I do not want to kill, just hurt and run. My husband has suggested a Ruger 22 it comes with two barrals I guess the first is a reg. 22 and the next is a magnum. My husband says that the magnum would work well for what I want. Is he right? Plus, in the senerio that I am in my car and a carjacker comes I would shoot and that would be at close range I do not want to kill him, but he would be like 3 to 5 feet away I want to learn to aim good so I can get him in like the shoulder a sped away. What kind of damages would it do? would it send him to the hospital so he is busted or to the morgue? I do not want to kill! but I do not want to be killed either, and I want him in the emergency room so the police could catch him. Is this the right gun, and off of my scenerio how would it harm him?
