Beretta Bobcat 21A: .22 or .25 for CCW?
Yes, I know, either sounds ridiculously underwhelming for self-defense but my hands are bad, arthritis compounded by injuries. I have a good SD gun: an FN Five-SeveN; they have quite low recoil but the ammo for that is nowhere to be found and when FN finally pushes out more God knows what the price will be, it was not cheap to begin with. So, I wouldn't mind a teeny-weeny in addition and the Bobcat seems to fit the bill.
But I know zero about .25 cal - except one interesting thing at my range and may be coming to others and to stores: they can't get .22!
Are we coming to THAT? Well, looks like it. Range does have .25, don't think it costs much (should look and find out).
Anyway, what would the recoil be like for .25 (for anyone who might know this Beretta teeny) and is it a significant difference from .22 for Defense, CCW?
Course theres the .32 also in Beretta, and I know zip also about .32 also - except some have said it can give you a good recoil-whack in a very small gun. My hands can't take any whacks. Even .38 spl (non +p) hurts quite a bit when I shoot and for days after. (And even the Five SeveN I only shoot about 15 rounds from. After that, pain starts.)
Thanks for any views on this.
