    I think it doesn't matter much, but I keep stingers handy as well as mini-mags. My P22 won't cycle reliably with regular ammo; though it does fairly well with plain jane Remington .22.lr. Other brands, no way.

    I don't know what if anything is available in a small package DA .22 revolver, but if I were going to go the .22 lr route I think that is what I would look for.

    I think Janq wrote that he carried 22 magnum in a revolver. That I like. But, I don't know where to find a DA revolver for this round, or if any are currently made. The tiny NAA is single action only and the only .22 magnum revolver I have been able to find.

    Most likely standard lead round nose, not much difference from one .22 to another, more importantly I'd carry with me the mindset of "draw gun to high ready position "pointed straight up near collarbone" body slam attacker while shoving gun barrel into neck, pull trigger until I hear nothing but clicks"

    I'm unaware of any jacketed .22 LR. Copper-washed or plated is another matter.

    FWIW, all the wash or plating does is reduce the incidence of leading. It has little, if any, effect on the performance of the bullet, otherwise.

    Anything but Remington Cyclone. It's the only ammo that I have had feed problems with in my Ruger Standard.

    I'll make two assumptions. 1. That we're limited to 22LR (no magnum) and 2. That whatever I choose will function in the gun.

    That said, my choice is CCI Velocitor. Has virtually the same energy as the CCI Stinger (191 for Stinger, 183 for Velocitor) but gets it's energy with a 40 gr. bullet compared to the Stinger's 32 gr. bullet. The heavier bullet should retain it's energy longer once it hits resistance and thus allow better penetration.

    I have not tried the Velocitors, I'll have to give them a try. Thanks for the review.

    Well, since the OP did not specify rimfire... any good .223 centerfire JSP that feeds well and is accurate in a Rock River Arms AR pistol.

    OK, since the spirit of this topic seems to be rimfire, I am going to say any high-quality ammo that ALWAYS goes bang. Match ammo increases the odds, due to a higher level of QC. Does high-velocity match ammo exist? If so, I would use it, after of course trying a bunch of it.

    FWIW, I would carry my 4" S&W Model 17, a K-frame sixgun, because I have it, and shoot a K-frame/L-frame/GP100-sized sixgun better than any handgun I have tried. If I were to buy a .22 rimfire weapon for such a scenario, I reckon one of the 10-shot revolvers would be a good idea.

    Interesting, as every photo I have seen and every description indicates a copper-washed, lead hollow point. True, the technology of the Gold Dot is used to make the cavity, but no one, Including CCI is calling the bullets Gold Dots.

    That would be my choice just because. A friend says the recoil on this j-frame is pretty mild. Heck, at a scant 10.5 ounces I imagine it would make for a true carry and forget. Only significant draw-back is the crazy price.

    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."

    •Special HP cavity design, derived from Speer® Gold Dot®

    If I had to carry a 22lr, it would be in a revolver, and I would use CCI mini-mag solids. Something on the line of a 9 shot DA. At least I could find ammo---unlike a 380 I carry.
