It would be a pretty small hole, so just shoot it and find out! It has been rumored that Wyatt Earp wore a heavy woolen coat that would stop a .32...

The .22 pistol and round for self defense...My take on it.
Why would .22lr out of a pistol be worse than from a rifle? If youre claiming that it has a lower velocity, your point is moot. It just match the velocity of a standard larger caliber. The human body doesnt care if its a .45, .32 , .22 or a sharp stick. Getting shot is bad for your health and a punctured lung is a punctured lung.
No, your leather vest and additional denim would not stop a .22 LR of even standard velocity. Not even close.
.22 subsonic through baseball.
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
wow this thread is still going. hmmm some people seem to get rather aggressive when talking about .22. I aggree with tricolordad, a punctured lung is a punctured lung. I was considering my .22 as cc at one point because I can empty my whole mag accuratly in the time I get off 3-4 of a 9mm. But my walther p22 isn't exactly what I would call reliable. I have seen some pretty good videos on youtube about .22 where they are shot through car doors and what not.
At what point did your p-22 begin to work?
sorry forgot it the first time
Edit: i searched it and found out i posted there when you first opened the thread.
Not sure about the point of the question but I would not expect and combination of layers of garments to stop any round. BTW: I would also not trust any firearm I carried for self defense to have to be soaked in CLP overnight aft 500 round to makes sure it functions properly. Sounds like your extractor or spring is defective. But then again, I am not a gunsmith :)
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
the point about the original post (before we got side tracked about different caliber) was in a sumed up version. can the mentioned vest and jacket combination stop a .22. Though we seem to have beat that horse enough now.
But we are off topic anyway so I mine as well throw out that there is a gunshow in Manchester, NH this weekend. I plan to go and figured I would pass the info along to anyone who is in the new england area.
