yep, i've come to learn that the caliber that has produced the most fatal wounds is .... believe it or not ... the .22
that was a surprise to learn although it does make sense.
i also like the idea of precision that infers
yes, the shot i did have to fire on an intruder was HP and from what i'm to understand, her inebriation delayed surgical intervention for the better part of 12hrs or so, which enabled the 'burn' to do more damage as time passed. (that was a 9mm shot)
since i have limited experience, i have found comfort to be key over size, style or ammo.
pistol or rifle, i like'em both.
i have shot many that i would never own.
and i have shot a few that i would love to own (when i'm wealthy)
however, i'm trying to be 'legal' and that seems to be a bigger challenge these days
anything over a 5" barrel and it becomes impossible to sit down
with the .22, it's not a matter of precision, so much as a matter of the fact that is nearly zero recoil...it's like firing an airsoft trainer, in terms of recoil...you don't hafta compensate, or fumble to get back on target, you can just squeeze, and the round goes more or less where you tell it to...and it keeps doing that...so more hits means more holes in your target, which obviously helps in terms of neutralizing a threat
as for your concealment problem, have you thought about an ankle holster or shoulder holster? and how are you currently carrying your weapon?
