    Forgot the .22 TELESHOT PICS

    IMO...I like the .22 round much more than a glass bottle for SD and carry a .22mag NAA myself for LDE surprise social work

    but my 642 is my main friend

    LDE= last ditch effort

    BTW, in 1981, while working at a store named Colman's Sporting Goods in Danvers Ma, I sold a FTL Auto Nine 22LR pistol (now known as the Wilkinson Sherry Pistol) to a Boston Police Detective who is one of my closest friends. I owned one, and knew it worked like a champ, so my friend Joe (the Boston PD Detective ) bought one, based on my advice.
    While Joe was waiting in line in a Charlestown Ma bank, two thugs came in and attempted to hold the place up. Joe, stood aside, identified himself, drew that little FTL 22 and proceeded to put "two in the hat" to both of the BGs. (BTW, the two BGs pointed their weapons at Joe, which, to him, was more than enough to place him in harms' way) One went down for the count, and the other currently is a veggie til this day. Joe has since retired, BUT he continues to thank me for selling him that little gun, and possibly saving his life, and others around him.
    BTW, I suggested he (Joe) use Remington Yellow Jackets in the gun, cuz it worked so very well for me. and YES.. this is NOT a BS story Just wanted to share a little first hand info on the 22 LR cartridge, and it's stopping power, utilizing the right ammo

    Can't guns always cycle faster than we can pull the trigger?
    Not always, Patrick E. "Machine gun Kelley" can pull the trigger faster than a Benelli M1 Super 90's disconnect can reset at 13 hundredths of a second.

    That's a shotgun isn't it? A handgun should be able to cycle much faster than that. I know my Sig 226 9mm can because I've timed multiple 0.13 second splits from it in rapid fire drills.

    Ahhh, I think you read right; I assumed we were talking about handguns and "assumed" everyone could read my mind.

    it is not a handgun, but I have a little .22 lr marlin rifle that i can go through 15 round in under 2 seconds. (probably faster but I have never timed it)

    Unfortunately I can't hit a darned thing when doing it though, LOL!

    Yeah but it's a loada fun Bryan

    I have done this rested on sandbags, so as to brace firmly and actually then it is possible to fragment a cement block rapidly into fragments! Bit by bit - excellent sport!

    OKShooter,

    An IMHO perfect all-purpose solution toward a carry sidearm that holsters well and that is chambered in .22LR would be the Marvel Precision conversion for 1911's that runs a match grade barrel and a top end that is plug n play for any stock 1911 frame.
    They have two offerings in 'Match' (Unit 1) and 'Practical' (Unit 2) with the latter cycling just like a normal 1911 while the former being a two-piece slide akin to the Model 41.

    More information can be found via their website at http://www.marvelprecision.com.
    I'm not associated with these folks but do have a Christmas order in toward a Unit 1 for use in Bullseye as well as general concealed carry training.
    I agree with you that light recoil facilitates better shot placement and consistency which then might lead to effective man stopping with shots in the right place e.g. the face. I like 1911s in .38 Super for this reason but as you noted if things went bad in the world it's a hell of alot easier to pack, prepare and find .22 than .45 or .38 Super. Having a conversion product such as the Marvel unit allows one to have two guns in one highly accurate & quiet as a .22 (i.e. small game hunting) and easy to convert back to .45 in the event greater stopping power is desired/required.

    Just an idea...
