Can a 22.Cal revolver be a good protection gun?
it is better than nothing... but I would definately want something larger if you are planning on using it for protection
I would never ask anyone to use a .22 for self defense. If it is all you got, I would have it near until you find something at least in the 9mm size...But you should go with the .40
If you use a .22 for self defense, you should be aware that you need to be careful. If he figures out you have shot him, he is gonna be really pissed off. LOL.
Seriously, it is better than nothing but is probably your absolute last choice for self defense.
i have a .357 S&W that, if you didn't know, fires a .38 caliber... it's a decent round for the job. maybe look into a small revolver in that caliber, it won't be too much weight even if you carry it in your purse or whatnot.
I have recently acquired a Taurus 85 Ultralite for my concealed carry weapon. Don't know what it is, but I've always preferred a wheelgun. To me a .38 is plenty for personal protection. I figure I'm not hunting bear , but defending myself.
You may want to go a bit more powerful than a .22 for personal protection. A .380 is enough to deter someone in order for you to get away. After all, a personal protection weapon is to stop the attack on you or others, not to engage in a prolonged battle.
do, not get more gun than you can handle.if you have'nt shot yet go to the range and start with the .22 and build your way up.most rentals are 10.00.you don't want to whip something out and shoot yourself in the foot.
want to whip something and shoot all over your foot...
its an embarrasing mess...skeet skeet skeet
