Yes, your .22 will work fine- as long as it's reliable and you do your part. A bigger caliber will give you a slight advantage.
Yes, with any round you must do your part and place the shots accurately. But to do your part with a .22 and have it work fine you're going to need to be extremely accurate and fast; and even then you might need to be lucky, too. A bigger caliber like a good 9mm is going to offer much more than a slight advantage.
People have been effectively using .22s for defense for over 100 years.
True, but that doesn't mean there aren't better options, especially with today's hollow point 9mm, .40, and .45 ammo.
