Very interesting thread.
I will say that while I carry a Beretta 21A .22lr almost everyday as my BUG (alternate with my PT22), I sometimes feel it would be wiser if I opted instead for maybe a LCR revolver or the like...? Honestly it's just money right now that precludes my switch of the 21A/PT22 to say a small .22lr revolver. However, I am not so sure I would feel as comfortable with a semi .22lr as a primary as opposed to a .22lr revolver.
I realize that the .25ACP ammo costs is ridiculous but I think it feeds more reliably than a .22lr in small semis.
