I shot some remington shorts in my Marlin 25N even though its chamberd in .22 LR. The catch is I could only fire single shots as the mag wouldnt feed properly. But in any case to answer your question the best I can I would say Remington Shorts are alright for the price. But I dont know exactly which would be the best. I suggest you grab a few boxes of different brands and see which one floats ya boat.

why are you carrying

a .22 short? If you shoot somebody with the damn thing and they find out about it,they are going to get pissed off.Get a bigger gun,keep that for a back up to a sling shot.

I agree 100% but i didnt say anything. My opinion was that a .22 short is really pointless to use as a carry firearm.

i know snake

I'm sure Big jake doesn't really want to carry a .22 short,but does for whatever reason,i'm not picking on him,but they are notoriously underpowered,cheaply made ammo= not reliable for a carry weapon,you really want a fight stopper.

If a .22 cal is what he wants then at least get a .22 LR. If I was to choose .22LR would be the minimum on how small the cal I would carry. I aint pickin on him either I was just asserting my humble opinion on the matter.

Oooo Ya .22 Short

In 63 years I have never bought .22 shorts. I have always bought Long Rifle.
Reason being. If you shoot only, shorts or longs in your weapon, and at one point transition to LR,The LR won't feed or eject correctly. They will hang up in the chamber.
The weapon will need to cleaned thourouly, to accept and eject spent caseings.
Staying with the LR is best for me. But the .22 is probly the best cal. Depending upon the job of course.
A LERP used a .22 on some of his patrols in Vietnam. Its a Quite and deadly weapon.
Always remember, bullet placement!!!
Don't much matter on caliber, if ya can't hit the target!!

Howdy Lyle,
Agree with ya 100% on the 22 LR -vs- short. Stick with the LR, Or get something like one of the older Browning's that are nothing but 22 short. Mix em up, & before long you will be sorry.

22 short

just chiming in on this subject, I shoot these cci 22 short "cb" rounds in my back yard so as not to disturb the neighbiors, great fun on hubcaps and squirels. I can shoot these all day long then ride out to my friends house in the woods and it shoots the LR just fine. Of course I'm talkin about my awesome henry rifle lever action. This thing shoots anything I feed it without even a hickup. Never tried the shorts in my auto, thanks for the tip Lyle.

Completely agree about the henry lever .22, probably the best gift my wife has ever bought me. I've never shot shorts in it though, only LR.

.22 Short

Just a thought. Big Jake might have an older Beretta pocket pistol chambered in .22 Short. They made some that were in .22 Short, and some in .25 ACP. In that case, he would need ammo for it. In my experience, it doesn't matter which manufacturer's ammo one buys - they're all about the same. Any ammo that chambers and fires, and cycles the gun is as good as any other.

I completely agree that no one should carry a pistol chambered in .22 Short and hope that they had any sort of protection. Big Jake would be well advised to buy a small pocket pistol chambered in .380 ACP, and practice, practice, practice.

.22 short made? I have the Beretta .25 which was imported into the US in 1959,i have the import tag in the box yet.they were not available to be imported after the 1968 gun control act because of their safety.A photo of my Beretta is in my pictures

my pocket change
Pre 1968 Beretta 950B in .25 ca. Notice the absence of a safety switch.The safety is at the Hammer at about 1/4 cock.Loaded with 45 grain expanding point Winchester.Remeber if you shoot somebody with a .25 and they find out about it,they are going to be PISSED.

Shorts, may not feed???????????
maybe, your weapon is designed to fire them,
read the side of the weapon, should say.
Try to stay with the same length of .22 rounds, you
don't need any problems!! I have had longs and short
rounds, through the years. I eather throw them away, or give them away.
Life is full of headaches, you don't need to borrow more!!

I have used CCI mini-mag .22 shorts on duty for groundhogs, coons and other vermin. I use the hollowpoints in a bolt action mossberg rifle. As stated they are quiet and up close with a headshot, one squeeze puts their mind at ease!

saw a Beretta 950 B

in .22short at Cabelas,they were selling it for 300.00 and it was a newer version with the safety lever.Yours could be worth a bit more considering its age.
