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.
You guys are a class act! Throwing stuff at the wall and determining if it sticks, or how to make it stick, is why i am here. I get this sense of integrity here that is hard to find. Thanks for your welcomes and opinions! CIAO

Welcome. Shoot the biggest caliber you can shoot accurately and quickly... if that is a .22 so be it.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

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.

Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I'm afraid to be violent!

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.
