    A .22 s just as good for self defense as a .45.
    Don't let the Machos tell you it's not. None of them would volunteer to
    be shot by one.

    Oops! I should have read this post before I posted one asking almost the same thing in another thread. I'll pass info here on to a friend with arthritis. Sorry all for posting the same question.


    Johns wife...you might want to take a look at a Ruger SP101 in .327.

    Hmm Ask a cop whos shot a hopped up doper 5 or 6 times and still hasn't stopped him about that one. If you had said a .22 can be as deadly as a .45 I'd agree with you but the level of reliance on the piece as a man stopper doesn't come close.

    If you like the P22 take a look at the PK380. A lot of people I know have switched to one after shooting them. One of my buddies, he is blessed with 3 daughters is purchasing his 4th one this upcoming weekend.

    Really for self defense and carrying, I believe that a .22 LR caliber would suffice. Maybe a walther or Ruger but not a revolver. Just an opinion.
