OK, Mossad, my mistake.
You're right, I didn't read the whole thread.
Point being that if they use .22 at close range and home defense with intruders in your home is close range that makes it a viable caliber.
Worldwide, throughout recent history more people have been killed with a .22 than almost any other caliber. That says something about it as well I would think. I'm including accidental shootings of family members as well as those who accidentally shot themselves and then you also have the suicides that you can figure into that number.
Edit: Most domestic self defense shootings are done at fairly close range. Very seldom do you have firefights across distance that are much greater than an average sized living room. Not saying they don't happen, just saying that they aren't typical.
I didn't know you could bend it like that?
