    Good job, she did great. It's sad that she has to work in such dangerous conditions to begin with but good for her for preparing to defend herself.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Even a rat will avoid mouseguns if possible.

    If I'm not mistaken,didn't both the mafia and the mossad used .22's to assinate people?I use velocitors in mine and I know I wouldn't want to be shot with it.Of course I also use a 9mm as my edc too.But if thats all I had I would sure use it. sj

    I'd love to know which model of .22 it was. There really aren't that many around these days in production, at least ones that would be useable for concealed carry. I can probably count them all on my fingers.

    Who cares what gun she used. She used it, and didnt suffer at his hands. Good for her.

    Even though this p.o.s. was preparing to (zip) tie the clerk up before she smoked him, I'm wondering how they knew that he intended to rape her. (?)

    As we have seen again, a .22 can be quite lethal. While I can't definitely say either way whether the Mossad or Mafia types have used .22s as a method of assassination (though I'm sure more than one gangster has done so), there is a pretty big difference between an assassin's tool used when you have the element of surprise to pop someone in the head and a pistol being used in a defensive situation. Someone who chooses to arm themselves against an unknown threat which can manifest itself in any number of ways, any time, and any place does not and should not have the same requirements as one who can choose all or most of the circumstances of an execution. Every job has its tool, and if you don't know what exactly you are dealing with it makes sense to hedge your bets.
