    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    It is a repeat story, but the repeat offender is now a dead offender...still a great story with a fine ending.

    I handled a number of murders where the weapon was a .22

    There are lots of murders with less-lethal guns in Russia, and some of them are weaker than .22. It's the matter of luck.
    There are also come cases of successful suicides with air guns and gas guns (the latter ones don't have a solid projectile at all).
    Human is a strange creature which can be accidentally killed by anything. It's all about probabilities and law of large numbers.

    The .22 obviously can kill. This instance was not a murder however.

    Georgia is getting bad when it comes to the crime rate. Just another reason why my family is protected by Sig Sauer! (and an old dog who don't like people...LOL)

    I saw this on the evening news last night. I used it to affirm to my wife the importance of her knowing where I have her revolver stowed away and why.

    .25 acp is more powerfull than .22 long. However, we are now talking about throwing a bigger rock or carrying a pointier stick.

    Almost all Russian less-lethal guns. For years all large-caliber (18x45, actually 15mm with 12gram rubber bullet with a steel core) had 85J of energy, and only this year we have a chance to be 100J-in-fact-130J rounds in this caliber, until new firearms act will start working.
    Small-caliber (9P.A., with 10mm bullet, 0.7gram initially, 1gram these days) less-lethals began with 23J and know some of them have up to 180J.
    And there were lots, lots of murders with all of them.

    Since July, we'll have no more than 91J rounds for our less-lethals :( Which will still be lethal.

    I have also investigated a number of shootings with .22's that resulted in death but very few were instantly fatal. Many who are shot with 22's, especially handguns, complete the act that got them shot before they expire. The same is true, of course, with other calibers and I would much rather have a .22 than a .25 but I'll opt for something a good bit larger given the choice. If the .22 was my only choice I would be aiming for the head and wishing it was a .22 mag.
