However I do get frustrated reading & hearing from "experts" how under-powered - unreliable - and ineffective the .22" Rim-fire Long Rifle cartridges are. ..
Glock G 44 .22" Long Rifle Rim-Fire Semi-Auto Pistol:
There still seems to be plenty of poorly educated stoopid people constantly shooting-off their mouths - although I would have expected them to suffer an early enhanced accident rate of attrition. - These same folk object to using care when loading ammunition into a box magazine - & find it too much trouble to select the best functioning brand variety of ammunition.
Here is a quick gel test video of 'two-two' ammo - Please observe the serious effect on ballistic Gel.
Question: If a six inch cannon ball scatters all the material where the skull was between the ears - is that target animal more dead than if an under-powered .22" drills through & disrupts its' central nervous system? .. Or will it now riot to re-elect Donnie?
I recently range tested some "High-Velocity" rim-fire ammo on Dog-Roll sausage type meat with all properly aligned rounds penetrating & passing through the full 14 inch length.
Actually let me re-run those thoughts .. I am most grateful to the poorly educated for stimulating others into thinking for them. If it were not for the bottom half of the IQ spread - what would the higher levels find for comparisons? ... I could not try to match myself against any Chess Champs or the 1 in 30,000 Prometheus Society ... BUT I do know that a center hit with a 'two-two' works better than making a loud miss with a magnum round.
Now hot from the USA comes some 'Red-Neck' ballistic testing video .. is there anyone keen to imitate an exploded pet-food can? .. Sure this is just a demo - but it impresses me.
The rim-fire .22" Long Rifle cartridge is seriously capable when used precisely .. and every shooter has the absolute duty to ensure that every shot that they fire IS precisely placed.
When Americans say that any small caliber is no "Man Stopper" .. what they are saying is in fact that an attacker is able to survive a misplaced shot - confirming that proper firearms usage is all about SAFETY and SHOT PLACEMENT.
