I've always heard more people are killed with .22's than anything else.
I doubt there's any truth to that statement, but a .22 is definitely lethal when used correctly.
I heard that .22 tend to bounce around in your body when it hits bone, rather than going through the bone, more than any other popular calibres. So the victim would bleed out on the table while the doctor is sewing him up.
I'm sure it's true. .22s are probably the most common caliber in the world. Because it's such a small caliber and so common, many people treat them like air guns and don't follow the 4 basic rules. Just a couple months ago some frat guys here were shooting in their back yard and their neighbors found .22 caliber hols through their walls. Thankfully no one was home at the time.
I've heard that .22's are dried Chuck Norris tears.
his tears cure cancer but he never cries.
.22lr are dried droplets of his urine

I want to get some of those powderless 22 bullets.
I've got a bunch of Aguila's. They're great for squirrels and such.
The question is how many people were dropped immediately by the round before they could continue their attack or simply died later on from the damage inflicted. I wouldn't want to be shot with a .22 but I wouldn't want to defend myself with one either unless I had no other choice.
can someone educate the ignorant on powderless .22?
At least someone gets it For a bit of historical perspective we've had a 70 year old president who got shot with a .22, didn't realize he was shot initially, coughed up blood, and walked himself from the car to emergency room. Perhaps you need to be 75 before all that "bouncing" will stop you.
They could have been shooting air guns with how powerful they are nowadays, and they can shoot 22's, not just .177.
that's because all the nignogs uses in gang shootings and shit. It's cheap and small.
CB caps / CB longs. I have some of each. Sounds kinda like you're shooting a cap gun under water. Pretty quiet. (Primer only)
They turned out to be .22 rifles. The got caught by the po-po
