Re: For Conceald Carry; A .22 Mag, .32 ACP or a .38 Special?
.22 magnum is loud, surprisingly loud. And out of a short pistol barrel, it's ballistics are about like that of a .22 LR shot from a rifle. So shot from a pistol, the .22 magnum is a loud, little bullet. You better be a very, very good marksman under pressure to be effective.
I'd stick with the .38 Special for concealed carry if I were you.
