    He need a caliber flexible enough to be used on large insects, rodents, and human beings.

    IF I HAD to carry my 22 as a self defense weapon, I would use CCI Stingers

    Well, a .223 is basicall .22cal... do they make any .223 handguns? That might fuck you up. Otherwise, no40/45nocare.

    AR and AK pistols in .223...also I think maybe there is a pistol version of the SIG556....


    other than that, why the hell you use a .22 caliber pistol for self def?

    .223 performs pretty shitty out of a short barrel.

    If I had to carry a .22 as a defense weapon I'd probably have SS197R or SS192 in it.

    its a 22 handgun the correct answer is whatever it feeds properly. I've never met a 22 that didn't have a favorite ammo.

    and why only a 22?

    By what standard? I'd say it sure does.

    Get a bigger gun.

    I think it's all the same for self defense. Basically worthless unless you happen to get lucky.

    hardly. It was a recockulous claim, so it should have been quite apparant.

    im not saying i carry 1 or it is good i was curious what they use if they do carry 22 like women for example.

    I know many women that are fine with .40S&W and .45ACP. 9mm is a good low-recoil option. If you can't handle those, then you shouldn't carry a gun because you're not safe with one.

    A good self-defense round cannot simply kill.

    There's a big difference between ending conflict NOW opposed to a .22 where the guy will eventually bleed-out over 3 days without treatment.

    Someone once told me that shooting me with a .22 would be foolish, as it would merely piss me off. It was a joke, but it does hold some truth. Shooting someone with a .22 is not going to stop a determined attacker.

    Childen can shoot .45's, what kind of women do you know that are so frail they can't shoot the same gun as a child?
