    Does it feed into the chamber from a fresh magazine?
    Does it fire when I pull the trigger?
    Does it load the next round from the magazine without jamming?

    If all three of those answers are yes, sounds like a winner in my book.

    I'm one of the 45 guys but I do like good hollow point ammo. A 45 that expands makes a huge hole, but even if it does not expand it makes a big hole. Matching ammo to the gun solves feed problems. Regardless of gun or caliber type ammo does not make up for practical practice with the gun carried.

    Well, I won't carry ammo that doesn't go where I aim it. Accuracy is a qualifier for me.

    BTW, I work today. Putting up the .38 and carrying the little .22 mag mini revolver. There's more to self defense than caliber.

    22LR Anything else is over-kill.

    1. Muzzle Controll: Always point in a safe direction
    2. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    3. Keep it unloaded until ready to use.
    4. Know your target and what is beyond.


    There is nothing so rewarding as to make people realize that they are worthwhile in this world.

    Hey, if that's all you have or all you can hide.... I've killed plenty of hogs with the .22LR from a pistol. Just has to be properly applied.

    We can talk about calibers, actions, and size until the cows come home.

    The FIRST thing is to have a gun. Without one ON YOU, all of the endless talk and preparation is for naught. Once you have a gun that you will have with you, when you need it,

    THEN discuss caliber, bullet weight, bullet design, and those parameters. Having finished THAT preparation, try some in the gun that you'll have with you when you need it. If it's accurate and reliable, you're home free.

    LASTLY, practice with it until you can HIT what you're aiming at. You cannot MISS fast enough to CATCH UP.

    With proper shot placement, the best round is a 22lr. LOL

    Obama: AK-47s are for soldiers.
    Arwine: MAK-90s are for civilians.


    This world would be a much better place if people would mind their own business.
