    If a .22 mag will take out a 250lb Deer then it is good enough for a BUG gun, BTY I really like my NAA. Just saw a real neat rig someone made for one, they insert a .22 cleaning brush all the way down the barrel into a MT chamber then attach a clasp on the threaded end with a heavy cord to wear it around the neck. Why didn't I think of that?

    Alright, I gave everybody else time to bite on this one first, but I guess I'll have to take the bait!!

    Regarding the rig you mentioned, I know that the cleaning brush was in both the barrel and the chamber, but a draw from this rig would start with your hand on the gun while it's pointing at your head?!?!?! Does this rig come with an "I'm with stupid" t-shirt with the arrow pointing the same direction as the gun?

    Sorry, just couldn't pass that one up!!!

    But you do have a point about the hunting application - a 22 mag would certainly take down a deer, especially with property placement.

    Thanks again for all the help,

    this has some gel tests of 22lr. One expanded nicely but did not penetrate as well as the others. They may make that round in Magnum.
