Re: .22 as a home defense gun?
I bet the next other campers in the campground were excited too. We just threatened to shoot a critter (food stealing racoon) around 1 am (I GOT IT IN MY SIGHTS!!! I CAN K5 IT! SHOOT IT SHOOT IT! The wives yelled "PUT THOSE GUNS AWAY AND GET BACK IN THE TENT!) Anyway, the next morning all the sites around us were empty. We didnt even hear them pack up and leave. Although after drinking all that beer the night before and staying up late to protect the cooler did cause us to sleep until 11 am or so. That was the last time we stayed at the Cozy Family Camp Ground and Fun Park.
And yes, any gun is better than a sharp stick. You can say, but what if I poke you in the eye? Well then I would shoot you more.
Donít pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he will just kill you.
