If you carry a .22 for self defense, you might find this enlightening.
I'll see your sharp stick, and raise you a Ruger 10/22 with a BX25 mag, a Taurus TX22 with 16 rounds, a Ruger LCP2 with 10 rounds, and a NAA Mini with 5. All loaded with CCI Velociters or Mini Mags.Howard, I like your videos. Always well done. The .22 lr has been done adauseam.
For self defense, the answer needs to be NO. Always NO. Words that violate forum rules NO.
I get limited strength and mobility. Still no. There are better options.
I would literally rather carry a sharp stick.
