SHTF: 10 Reasons to Own a 22LR Firearm and 22LR Lethality



Backwoods Survival

The next video is not going to be popular with many, but I would submit the fact that mafia hit-men long preferred .22s for their assassinations. A big part of that was, admittedly, because of the comparatively lesser noise report of that ammunition and the obviously unwanted attention attracted by a louder firearm; but, it was also because the .22 caliber round is known to bounce-around inside people’s skulls, making minced-meat out of their brains. It can be very lethal with either proper shot-placement and/or multiple shots. A .22 in a home invader’s leg probably isn’t gonna save your life, but 7 of them in the guy’s chest probably will. A shotgun is still the best home defense gun, in my opinion, but some folks aren’t physically-capable of firing a shotgun or a high-caliber handgun, so we need to look at other possibilities.

A bit of bad language in some of the videos below, so beware.

Surprisingly good results from 300 yards out shooting at a 4-5″ thick piece of chuck roast that isn’t even 100% thawed-out, wrapped in 8 layers of denim (4 in front 4 in back) to simulate thick clothing and all duct-taped together in a bundle:

Same guy and same brand of ammunition as above, but with a 22LR pistol, and shooting through a 4-5″ thick chicken and jugs of water with terrycloth to simulate clothing:

    Brilliant for bunnies, but for size I would use a PPK with hollow points for home defense.

    .22LR hollow points randomly inaccurate nearly as much as .22shorts.

    When the final gun grabs occur, the people at your door will be in body armor. A .22 LR with a 30 rd mag will do nothing, unless you are skilled to put all bullets into the faces and hands of your targets (I witnessed a skilled cop do the latter: a single .357 Mag bullet shot the gun out of the baddie’s hand). I used to hit running bunny’s at 50 yds with a .22 LR, and always reflected on how much easier a target a man would be. The .22 LR has it’s uses, since there is no recoil. A pistol with .22 shorts would be good for walk-by “work”. For SHTF, a .22-250 would be a good choice. Work up loads that attain 4000 fps, and that little bullet will melt through ceramic body armor. Using a milspec scope, zero it at 150 yds, and you have a flat shooter past 300 yds (3 football fields). I used to shoot a Rem 700 in this caliber, with no noticeable kick (at least compared to a .308 or .300 Win Mag). This is a true multipurpose round. I took a pronghorn at approx 300 yds, and he barely made 20 yds before dropping dead. I would save my .22 LR for small game, and unarmored assailants, and the .22-250 for the more difficult targets.
