WHile i have 2 10/22's and they are very good rifles. The story is most HD issues go down at 3 feet or less i think. In that situation the rifle might be a bad choice. To easy to block when you need to spin or turn. I go for the pistol also. Not because of size,just because of ease of manuverability in a tight corner.
