I see what you are saying, they are more harsh....I guess I will say....but you do include they are irritating, I am guessing with the ears on. That irritating with ears is pain without, and that is just another arrow in your quiver. If....god forbid....I ever need something like that I want the deck stacked in my favor as much as possible. That irritating sound and flash may be one card out of 52, but I want that card on my side.I'm not so sure about that. Years ago when, I think it was those AMTs, in an indoor range, I had to stop and go find out what was making that awful sound. It was those .22 magnums. Now, my full house .44 mag loads were probably much worse. But, they were more of a boom with concussion. Those .22 mags seemed much more high pitched and irritating.
I remember seeing video years and years ago of a lovers quarrel at a bar. In this video this big ole boy was clearly pretty upset, there was no audio. These two guys are going at it, one on one side of the bar, the other in the customer area, with two females. Guy in the customer area picks up a chair and is acting like he is going to chuck it at guy 2. Holding it above his head and making motions like he is going to toss it at him, guy 1 has both hands up like he is going to try to deflect chair. This back and forth goes on for about 20 sec.....a very long time.....and finally there goes the chair and guy 2 ducks. Guy 1 picks up another chair, and guy 2 comes up from behind the bar with a hand gun, you really can't tell what it is, but it does have a longer barrel. Guy 1 is going really off the rails, guy 2 is pointing gun, and the girls vanish. Back and forth for another 20 sec or so and here comes another chair, and guy 2 ducks. Again he comes up and again the guy in front of the bar has another chair....this time he is advancing on the bar. Another exchange for about 20 sec, this time guy 2 shoots guy 1. He backs up a bit....and advances again, and he is shot again. This back and forth went on for a total of 6 times before guy drops the chair and decides he should sit down.I will just say that my BIL's Ruger LCR in .22 RF is pretty darn loud coming out of that short barrel....personally would not want to be hit by a .22 RF 40 gr HP at anywhere from 10-40' in a close encounter.
For lady friend that does'nt have a lot of hand strength...Tried her with a .380 and a 9(with me in back holding arms),no they won't work.She did well with .22 auto,but I can tell in an emergency the controls would confuse her.I'm thinking a 2-4" revolver----any suggestions,Thx
TRY LOOKING AT THE WALTHER PPK/S 22LR. LOOKS NICE, SHOOTS GREAT, A LITTLE HEAVY INSIDE A PURSE, BUT GREAT FOR CCW HOLSTER.For lady friend that does'nt have a lot of hand strength...Tried her with a .380 and a 9(with me in back holding arms),no they won't work.She did well with .22 auto,but I can tell in an emergency the controls would confuse her.I'm thinking a 2-4" revolver----any suggestions,Thx
Looks more dangerous than need be. Two finger trigger and a two finger grip on a double barrel 22 Mag. Got a lot of twos in there.
