.22 LR Might Be A Better Defense Round Than You Think

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.
