    .22LR Stinger test.

    I have a small set-up where I can test ammo fired into different materials.
    Being interested in light calibers I today tested CCI .22LR Stinger, rapid fired at a distance of 10yds from a Walther P22 short barrel pistol.
    My target was fixed to my frame, with three sheets of 1/2" drywall and two sheets of 1/2" hardibacker (cement tile board) as the board.
    That's 2 1/2" of cement boards that the round had to slow it down before it can exit and carry on into the cinder blocks behind.
    I checked the target after the first round and again after the tenth.
    The first round dented the back of the fifth board, by the seventh round I was shooting straight through the 2 1/2" thick target.

    I'm not advocating carrying a .22LR, I haven't tested the round into ballistic gel yet and won't be packing the Walther.

    But it does make me think about what it would do to a side of ham.

    My wife and I both like the CCI Stingers, as well as the Minimags, for our Beretta's as well as the NAA mini. Not for primary CC by any means, but potent in the right circumstances and conditions.

    Thanks for sharing the pics and test, Alias.

    nothing wrong with the 22lr round. i got an old beretta 21a that i use to carry in the 80's. the 21a has limitations, but it is a gun with potential as a self-defense weapon so long as you recognize those limitations and practice with it often. it is a great pocket gun.

    I'm actually buying an NAA mini revolver soon for BUBUG (back up back up gun) and will repeat the test with that gun when I do.

    The muzzle blast in my Woodsman clone from the Stingers is quite impressive. I am planning on teaching my wife how to use this gun with the stingers, as she does not seem keen to learn how use the 9mm. A woman with a gun up here would likely give anyone breaking in a heart attack as they would never suspect it. 10 rds aimed can do some damage. Have you tested any of the other 22rds? Many thanks for this.

    I have heard that more people are killed every year with the old .22Lr round than any other. Mainly because quite a few people think, to their ultimate dismay, that the .22Lr isn't really a dangerous round. They treat it more like an air rifle. But it is a lethal round to be sure.

    I agree ^^^ The 22lr round is pretty damn deadly. Anyone who thinks other wise better put their money where their mouth is and let me shoot them in the chest or head with one at close range.

    Yeah, I thought not!!

    While it may not transfer alot of energy most .22lr bullets enter a person one way and exit in a totally different trajectory, and sometimes end up in the heart!
    I carry because I care.

    You should do another test like that, see how different the ammo is now.

    To be honest Colin - I doubt there would be any significant differences. Well, not in the ammo.

    The main variable here would be the condition of clay - how wet, how dry and so how elastic re it's expansion potential.
