Q:Re this S & W 22LR handgun w/10-shot magazine --- Would this be an effective gun for personal - family home protection? The price is right and the ammo for target practice would be affordable and my wife could handle it too. It looks like a friendly gun we would like --- if it also will do the job.Asked on 11/19/2009 by Deano from Harrison Township, MI
A:22's are more for target shooting not personal protection. A 9mm is probably the smallest size effective for home defense. I would recommend a .45Answered on 12/27/2009 by Justin from Stafford VA
A:.22 is way to small. For personal or home protection my advice is look at what calibers police use. .38 .40 .45 .9mm This would be my advice for home defense that or a small shotgun .410 or 20 ga. Most brands make a home defender model that has a pistol grip and short barrel. My grandma carried a 32 special around for years for home and personal pertection. so if you want something your wife would be ok with handeling a 32 would stop almost anyoneAnswered on 2/11/2010 by JakeT from Washington
A:The first rule of a gun fight is bring a gun. A 22 is better than a zero. A 22 will penetrate the front of the skull but probably not the rear, and then the bullet will bounce around scrambling the victims gray matter.
If you can only afford one gun, and can not afford to shoot it enough because the cost of ammunition is too high, then its better to get something you can become proficient with. I can buy 550 rounds of ammo for a 22lr for $16 at walmart.
I own this weapon, and while its no ones first choice for defense, it is accurate enough that I can get three bullets into the same quarter sized area in about 3 seconds at 10 yards or so. If those three are in your head, game over, good bye, thanks for playing.Answered on 3/12/2010 by Dale Gribble from Tallahassee, Florida
A:I would rather be shot at by at .45 than hit with a .22Answered on 3/29/2010 by Sam from Wisconsin
A:Many SF units around the world are armed with .22 caliber handguns...though, most of us are not Special Forces, and our targets will reflect that. As for cheap target practice, this would be excellent, but, unless you shoot like one of the characters from "The Unit" you may want to upgrade to a 9mm, or a tactical-style shotgun. That all being said, I had an unfortunate accident involving a .22 round...I have a metal rod in my foot, replacing the inch or so of missing bone, they hurt, and can be deadly, but there is no real man-stopping power.Answered on 4/17/2010 by Target Steve from Indianapolis, IN
