Sometimes people have only a little bit of money they can realistically spend on self defense and portraying your opinion as fact is a bit nonsensical when it comes to caliber wars. For example, at the local farm store which happens to have the absolute best deals on handguns around here:
Springfield XD 9mm $464.99+$30 app fee +$15 background check + $25.57 tax= $535.56 total
Taurus M22 in 22lr $194.99+30+25+10.72=$250.71 total.
Took it out of the ad from the Sunday paper, not making it up. That $284.85 more is unrealistic in most people's budgets around here. That's the difference between having a larger caliber and being homeless. That's also ANOTHER Taurus M22 in the pocket if you'd be willing to spend that much. IMO I'd prefer 2 .22s in the pocket vs one 9mm. To blatantly lie like that may cost somebody their life because they may choose to pass up on the .22 because YOU said that there's a handful of duds.
By the way, I also buy those big 500 and 550 round bricks. Still haven't had a FTF. Let's base it on truth like the admins said.
