Ahoy 45 auto:
"How do you get the bad guys to let you know when you're going to have time to get an M22-4 out of your holster instead of using an M442 snubby fired from in your pocket? Do they send you email or something? " [45 auto]
Email....no. Snubby fired from pocket...possible from jacket pocket, but from pant pocket it is difficult, very loose pants required.
Assuming the assailant was within 10 feet I would draw and fire my IWB snubby, i.e. a M396NG. And I draw and fire quicker than most folks can blink.
But you missed the point, I would not use a M442 against a perp/s 30 feet or more out ... that's when I would prefer the M22-4.
Usually carry a primary and 2 New York reloads, and what comes out first is what the situation demands.

Well I live in Michigan, and my favorite restaurant is in Detroit. Great food.

For 20 years the sea was my home, always recall the sun going down, and my trusty friend, a 1911 pistol, strapped to my side.
