Folks always assume bigger is better. I think accuracy in round placement is far more important. I have a Remington 597 Magnum. 8 in the clip, one in the chamber. If you cant do some damage with that, you shouldn't have a gun in your hand in the first place.

My cousin was shot in the face with a 22 from less than a foot away, and survived perfectly fine. One of my fathers buddies got shot multiple times in the head, with a 22 and he didnt die. He is severely hanidcapped now though. Yes you can kill something big with a 22 if you hit an artery but, the author of the thread doesnt seem that experienced with guns so the chances of that are unlikely friend.
Also I was raised around guns, and we have multiple guns in the house, one of them being a semi automatic 22LR, so I do know first hand the capabilities of a .22.edit on 19-4-2011 by smokeythabear because: elaboration

The ammo is cheap and once you get expert with that round ( by shooting alot cheaply) your knowledge can translate to larger rounds.The .22 will force you to accuracy for the kill shot on rabbits and is a perfect weapon to fine tune all your shooting skills.
Remember, ask any seasoned assasine and there round of choice is without a dought the trusted .22Lr.
Get the .22 and have a blast plinking( damm varmits).
