    Woman Defends Herself With .22

    News-Leader.com | Updates - News

    A 37-year-old man from Ava was shot with a 22 caliber weapon during a dispute Saturday.

    The man’s name was not being released Sunday because no charges had been filed in the case.

    On Saturday, The Ozark County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a domestic dispute near Longrun, a rural area in the county.

    When the officers arrived, they learned a man broke into the house and was shot by the 38-year-old female in the home. After being shot, he fled the residence.

    While the two were not married, they knew each other.

    There have not been a lot of calls from this address, but the sheriff’s office is acquainted with the participants, said Sheriff Raymond Pace.

    The male was found near Wasola several hours later and transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield. As of Sunday, he was still in the hospital, Pace said.

    Charges of burglary and assault are expected to be filed against the man on Tuesday, Pace said.

    No charges are expected against the woman.

    “She was defending herself. He broke into the house,” Pace said.

    This is an example of how a domestic dispute can end in a “serious situation,” Pace said.

    What a bunch of nonsense. A "serious situation" would have been the homeowner becoming another statistic. Should have said, "This is an example of how a domestic dispute can end in justice."

    Good for her.

    I think that someone is BS'ing in this article. It says she used a .22 and everyone knows that using a .22 is a waste of time that can't even go throught one layer of a t-shirt much less injure someone. I am sure that meant a .32 instead.

    I too had a good friend killed with a .22. He was 16 year old and his father was showing off his gun when for some reason he fired it. Just pointing out how so much discussion goes on about the minimum caliber that you need and many people have been killed with a .22. I read once that in Californicate the #1 caliber for fatalities of LEO was the .25.

    That is no longer true. The drug folks have better weapons than the police.

    A .22 could kill an attacker, no doubt about it. But in terms of defense, it's ability to "stop" an attack in time to prevent the shooter from being killed or gravely injured by the attacker is very poor.

    22 cal.

    I haven't done the stats in a long time but there was a time that 22 had killed more people than all other handguns combined. Late
    1980s or early 1990s I think.

    I use a Ruger 10-22 with a 30-rnd magazine for home defense. At least until I can afford an AK. I can fire off a lot of rounds in a very short time if necessary and reloading is almost instantaneous. Its short barrel and light weight makes it ideal for moving through confined spaces. A good friend of mine carries a North American Arms .22 cal. minipistol whereever he goes. All I can say is I don't want to be down-range of either weapon.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson

    Over the years, many mob hits have been made with a .22. The ammo is easy to get, virtually untraceable, an a couple of .22 rounds in the back of the head are very effective.

    We often think that a 9mm is marginal and a .45 is really the only round that can be relied upon. But in most things, Americans often believe that "if some is good, then more is better, and too much is just about right." And sometimes that is true.

    I would not pick a .22 to carry, but I'd rather have a .22 than a pocket knife. And I'd rather have a .22 than a .25.

    I once investigated a death that turned out to be a hunting accident with a .22. The autopsy revealed that the bullet ricocheted inside the body 3 times, making 4 wound channels. It cut the aorta and trachea, and perforated all kinds of organs. Gentleman was DRT quick!
    Have taken numerous deer, through the years with one shot just below the ear. It ruins virtually no meat and makes for a very sanitary field dressing experience. Great survival round!

    Exactly. That is why instead of carrying a pocket knife, I carry in its place a 7 shot, S&W 351 PD, .22 magnum wheelie - 11 ounces. It is not my main carry gun, it is my pocket knife!

    I think the key to survival is "you use what you got". And use it better than the B/G.

    Only hits count. If I had a choice between hitting a BG with harsh words or with .22 rounds I'd pick the .22.
