Some of you might think that the .22 caliber rd. is not much to consider when it comes to it being a self defense ammo. From what I have read, it has been involved in many assassination attempts and is a very common rd. in homicide cases.
Anyway, I own a Ruger 10/22 with 2-50 rd. magazines. I buy the Remington bucket of bullets when I see them on sale, to shoot in my 10/22. But, now I'm interested in a self defense rd. for a .22 pistol I just recently received for some computer repairs I did. I was thinking anything CCI.
PLEASE, positive opinions only.

The difference is stopping power. People die from .22lr rounds, but it takes time to bleed. I'm not sure that .22 will keep them from killing you before they collapse. But .22 is better than nothing, shot placement matters.

I'd look at CCI minimag or CCI stingers.

EDIT, i left out the CCI velocitor.

CCI segmented (used to be kwikshok (???) I think.

not accurate at distance, but pretty effective on foxes and roos.

The pistol will stay in my front or back pocket, depending on what pants/shorts I'm wearing. It will only be used for up close protection, if needed. It's not like I'm going to be shooting at anything 50 ft. away, or better. But, then again, you never know.....??????

JJ, as I have stated, it will stay in a pocket. I guess I should have been MORE SPECIFIC!
I usually carry an M&P .40 with either a .357 SIG barrel and Underwood GD ammo, or with the .40 barrel and HST ammo. The .22 will be for BACK UP PURPOSES ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! smirk

If you need a backup the least I would consider is a small .380. The very minimal self defense gun.

I own an SP-101. That is my pocket carry pistol MOST OF THE TIME! I am WANTING to carry this .22 pistol as a change! That is okay, right? I mean, I was in the ARMY, and I did shoot expert 8 years in a row with the M-16 and, I have been shooting firearms since age 6.........i just wanted AN OPINION on a good .22 self defense rd. Not on what to carry! smirk

I think the .22 is the worst choice possible, nearly.

1) Rimfire ammunition is less reliable across the board.
2) It's a .22. Certainly there are better tools for the job!?
3) If you must use a .22, this is what I would pick:

There is no good defense .22 round. Best you can do is a hollow point.

I've only got experience with British Army stuff of yesteryear, but I believe .22 saves on dry cleaning.



That's positive, isn't it?
