I appreciate both revolvers and semi-autos, like the clubs in a bag of golf clubs, they all offer some advamtage for the right shot. Also, ammo distributors and many gun shops decided to make a secondary market out of the .22 rimfire availability. There are billions of rounds of .22 ammo sitting around the country in warehouses. I would be curious how many .22 rounds are veing produced today, bet it's a lot lower amount than 8 years ago.
The author also had a mistake in his availability of ammo, fmj vs hollowpoints. Sure, today....no argument. Go back to about three months after the Sandy Hook elementary shootings, and we had lines out the doors looking for any kind of ammo to shoot. That lasted only a short time, but for .22 ammo, it lasted two years. I believe the .22 ammo shortage was due to prepper TV series at the time, compounded by the thought of our federal Govt. being off the rails during the b.o. administration, which we have found out, all our suspicians were true.
If any of the idiots running against DJT for 2020 get in office, ammo availability will go into the toilet.
Anyhow, if .38 special was good enough for Sgt. Friday and .45 LC was good enough for John Wayne, it is good enough for me.
Having trouble deciding whether to take my Ruger SR9 S Pro to the ranch on Monday or my Taurus Model 66. Since I have snake shot for the 66, it will probably be on my hip. Also, if an oryx get after me, I would rather have a .357 magnum ready for service, would actually prefer a .50 cal rem. magnum in that situation.
