Some people chose to carry .22LR handguns for self-defense. Unless you are very accurate with your weapon, we do not recommend shooting a .22LR for this purpose. The initial kinetic energy of such firearms is very low—you would be much better off with a .25ACP or .32ACP for roughly the same size firearm.

notice 2 went over the FBI 12"

22 test

notice barrel length was 18" on most Tell me again about 22 great penetration.

My great uncle was murdered by a friend, after his wife answered the door and had the visiting 'friend' wait on the porch. When my great uncle approached the door, at least 11 rounds of .22 LR were fired through the door. At least 6 bullets hit their target and most of them fully penetrated his body, lodging in the wall behind.
He was dead before the ambulance arrived.

Wood door + 9.5-10" of body + 1/2" lath and plaster = not too shabby
