The .22 has many stories attached. One I recall was a mob guy who was no longer in favor with the bosses, and at a meeting someone came up behind him and made a .22 head shot. He survived due to the sometimes possible deal, of the bullet running round inside cranium but not inflicting mortal damage.

OTOH as many know - many a ''hit'' has been with a coupla .22's to the noggin!!

I have a NAA Mini .22 mag as mini BUG . better than zilch but - my one problem is always the reliability factor with rimfire ... it just isn't always 100%.

This case however probably proves that - ''a .22 in the hand - is better than no gun at all".
