.22 rifle for home defense?
my son is a PA in a trauma surgery unit an does a fair amount of work with GSWs. He says it is kind of amazing the route a bullet sometimes takes based on the angle, the caliber. what the person is doing and/or their reaction when they are shot.

I saw a fair amount of GSWs in my career and some were .22s. Some people were able to walk and talk after being shot and survived. Some were DRT. I've been shot at by a guy with a .22 rifle. Fortunately he missed but I sure don't want to be hit with one.
For continued discussion...
