    Actually the Cheetah came in 32 ACP, 380 and 22 LR.

    The Tomcat was another tip-up barrel model.

    22lr. CCI Velocitor is the best round IMO. CCI Ammunition - Product Detail

    Given the choice between the two, I'd probably opt for the .22LR like the majority of the folks on here. I'd probably save my money and by a Ruger Bull barrel though, so you could actually hit something you were shooting at.

    Believe Brad commented about buying ammo instead, and that really makes more sense than either small piece. Even in an EOTWAWKI situation, ammo will be better barter material than a cheap handgun, that isn't reliable.

    Nobody has suggested "a medium sized rock"...

For some reason I was thinking they were all .25ACP, but I realized when looking online today that they come in both calibers. Now I'm scratching my head as to which is better. Since it is the same gun, only different caliber, I'm trying to make a decision. I realize the .22LR ammo is much cheaper, but I doubt I'll be putting hundreds of rounds through it at the range, so the price isn't really that important. On the same token, I probably won't be carrying it much (if ever) as a self-defense weapon so reliability isn't really all that important either. So I'm pretty much back at square one. What are people's opinion between the two calibers?
    Definitely 22 over 25. It can be used in semi-autos, revolvers, and rifles. Cheap practice. If you're going to spend the money on a 22 semi-auto for fun and or practice, then go ahead and spend a few more bucks and get a Browning Buckmark of Ruger Mark. If you want something that has the look and feel of a carry gun rather than a target gun, look at the Ruger SR22 and S&W M&P22. Too many great options out there to waste your money on an El Cheapo.
