IMHO - too "campy"...
While it's probably the truth, it perpetuates the idea that a .22 is an assassin's weapon or something carried by someone *licensed to kill".
I vastly prefer the stories in the American Rifleman where granny bests the bad guys with a "lowly" .22.
I'm 1000 times more likely to have a home invasion than I am to ever operate on an international basis..
No...make that a million...better yet..a billion..
