I’m not saying this article over at the Defend Thyself blog of Guns and Ammo Magazine is a definitive study on the effectiveness of the .22 LR cartridge, but it does raise an interesting point: People don’t like to get shot, whether it be with a 338 Lapua or a .22 LR.
Given the other useful things that can be done with the .22LR cartridge, It’s starting to look more and more like it will become my primary ammunition stockpile for surviving a SHTF scenario. I’ve got to go gun shopping pretty soon.
If you were too lazy to read the article, the guy used a .22 to fend off multiple attackers, one of whom eventually died, in a home invasion. The guy who died was shot in the hip. I told you the old reverse Mozambique works. Everybody always wants to nay say that technique, but you can’t tourniquet a shot between the hips.
