Re: How Lethal Is A .22 ???
Now what I am going to say may piss someone off. I will set the story for you. I was 19 years old fresh back home after basic and AIT for the CANG. I came home to parents saying "Can't stay here" So I ended up crashing at an old girlfriends house. Her dad was a bit of a lush and so was the women he was with. When I say a bit of a lush on payday he would go buy $400 in booze and $25 in food. He had two kids and thank god lived on his parents property so they could go to his parents house and get a decent meal at night. I would buy food for myself and they would eat it all. So when I ran out of money trying to find an apartment and a job at the same time was very hard. I took it upon myself to feed my and his children. So I went hunting with my Remington 511-x and my trusty Chevy S10. I brought home 2 deer with that in 2 days. It was out of season and wrong but we had no food no money and well you gotta eat.
So you can take deer with a 22 I had two one shot kills shooting Remington Yellow jackets on deer and I even took a coyote out with it as well.
