Over in the TTAG forum, some random guy asked TTAG’s favorite female marksperson—a trick shooter who champions .22 caliber like Sports Illustrated champions the swimsuit industry— if she thought her favorite caliber was suitable for self-defense. Ms. Weiss replied with a definite maybe.
“Is the .22 worth a ‘damn’ as a defense round? One big fat absolutely! Is something bigger more suited to the task? It depends. Context is important. For example, say you’ve somehow gotten yourself into a shady scenario (Robert, this means you). You’re cornered by a ‘bad guy’ yet the sound of a round echoing in the air would just alert more baddies to your position . . .”
