    Glad i found you guys!

    Never too old to learn. i believe i'll have my masters by the time i drain your collective brain. good stuff here!

    might as well get you guys whipping me right off the bat...wife has that bent finger, painful type hand arthritis. settled on an lcr 22 as her
    bedside companion when i swing over to nightshift. she likes it and i like that she likes it. i feel ok about this setup for her loaded with cci velocitors.

    can she hit an eyeball at 20'...probably not. but she is fully capable of 3-4 quick ones center mass.

    let the flogging begin.

    by the way...i don't do facebook stuff or any other forum (posting) participation. the stuff that you guys offer here is to me very very important.
    i won't be bangin' back and forth on a constant basis. please don't interpret this as disrespect! i do appreciate any and all feedback and i will respond as time permits.

    Welcome from NH

    There is nothing wrong with a .22. I love .22 they are plenty of protection. check out ballistics on youtube for them. Can shoot through wood, metal ect.. I own a 10/22 and p22 myself and they are very fun to shoot.

    Hi and welcome to the forum from California!

    Being comfortable with and using a .22 LR for her defense is sure a whole lot better than using nothing. I know I wouldn't want to be on the business end of one. There are pros and cons no matter what the caliber. Just let her know that there's nothing wrong with 5 or 6 to center mass either.

    Welcome. Shoot the biggest caliber you can shoot accurately and quickly... if that is a .22 so be it.

    Welcome from NE.

    Being comfortable with a firearm promotes confidence. Better to shoot a .22 well than maybe get a shot off with something else.

    Welcome from SE Michigan. A bullet is a bullet. As long as it puts holes in the BG's when necessary and she is comfortable firing it, good for her.

    Welcome from Alaska.

    My two self defense uses of a firearm both involved a tiny .22LR revolver. No need to shoot in either instance, one of the BG's yelled "He has a gun", and the whole crowd took off. Both times.

    As I see it, for a civilian with a gun caliber is going to matter maybe 5 times out of 100. (The other 95 will envolved clean underwear and fast running shoes.)

    Compare that to 100 encounters in which the civilian does not have a firearm, and would be at the "mercy" of the bad guy.

    She should go with what she can shoot, and be ready to use it if need be.
