No my 640 Pro or my Glock 27 is about the same size as your 22 and WAY more of a rocket. A 22 LR may well be lethal, but you can not count on it stopping anything larger than a rabid gofer.
A punctured lung? Ok, lets wait 30 minutes before a tension pneumothorax develops.

I don't seem to be grasping the point here. can be killed by .22, can be killed by .45. get shot in the head with .22, .45 your dead. Before you waste your time there is documented cases of people surviving and dieing from both so bottom line is if you get shot it isn't going to be a good day. Don't know why there is so much debate here.
So how much do we think I could find a remington 870 for at this gun show? will be my first gun show so looking for ideas.

You stand a better chance of stopping the threat with a .45 than you do with a .22, both will kill you. However, which one will stop the BG before he puts his knife into your chest. There is the debate. Incapacitation vs. lethality.

I use mine for rabbits and prarie dogs. For some reason for any game larger I feel the need for something with more power (as does the division of wildlife) .

articulated triple density back protector in it. <~~~~Much would depend on how that is constructed. Not all of them contain any KEVLAR at all.
Even if your protector had some layers of Kevlar for skid protection there would need to be some sort of a N.I.J. threat level rating.
While a few thicknesses of Kevlar might be enough to save your skin from abrasion there may be a huge difference between doing that and stopping any bullet.
