when asking that question, you have to look to the person being asked. if a person feels only a 45 acp is the acceptable caliber to carry, then they would have you to believe anything smaller is underrated and unacceptable.In your opinion, what is the most underrated/underestimated caliber for self defense/carry and why?
I own handguns in most of the smaller calibers and i wouldnt feel too undergunned carrying any of them. But i prefer 9mm and .45 for my primary carry cartridges. My subcal pistols serve as BUG's, Church guns, HOT as hell day guns, and fun all around plinkers.I was curious if anybody would trust their lives to a .22 mag revolver or any other "under the radar" rounds that aren't .357 mag or .45 acp.
If you consider that I carry my LCR 22mag in my pocket about everywhere I go...then, yes... I guess I trust my life to it. I really love the little pistol and loaded with "critical defense" rounds...it's no slouch!!MattyT said:I recently have a sparked interest in .22 mag. Everything I've read leads me to believe its a very fun round. On top of that, I saw last week that Ruger came out with a .22 mag LCR that looks pretty sweet. I know they make defense loads now (gold dot, hornady, etc.) and I was curious if anybody would trust their lives to a .22 mag revolver or any other "under the radar" rounds that aren't .357 mag or .45 acp. I usually use my handguns for hunting sidearms as protection but also rely on them for HD.
