I have an old Savage 22lr semi auto. I can shoot this weapon extremely well and until the last 1 1/2 years I could get all the ammo I needed. Now, if you can find any you're redistricted to one box.

I voted for .22 for the same reasons mentioned in this article, as long as it stays cheaper than 9mm rounds. I've seen some scalpers selling it for the same price.

As an instructor, I think it's vital to start a student with a firearm in .22 caliber to practice the fundamentals, get over any concern for recoil, and simply to make their first shots FUN! ;)

Even at 12 cents per round, it's 1/5 the cost of any centerfire, can kill small game and eliminate any flinch.

I grew up, from a daisy bb gun I craved a real rifle, and idolized the stevens/savage single shot bolt action 22 thatI was able to buy from an uncle at age 12. I have shot more 22 than you'd believe

The .22 LR is a great, versatile round. Low cost, low noise, low recoil. Great for small game hunting, teaching new shooters, or passing time plinking or target shooting for an experienced shooter.

I like all calibers of guns the .22 is one of my favorites, but I wouldn't put it in the highest honors spot. On the flip side it wouldn't be at the bottom either. I like all calibers of guns.

I look at a .22 lr as a small game hunting round. I would pick the .22 mag as a close range defense round though

I like it, but I like bigger and stronger calibers for more stopping power! (5.56, 7.67. and .50 caliber)

Would have to purchase another firearm. Have a revolver and rifle chambered in .38/.357, so if I do have to "bug-out" I only have to carry 1 type of ammo.

Doesn't have the stopping power. Shot with a fatal shot, an attacker still can kill you before they die.

.22 is okay, but for surviving a situation where 'bartering' came into the picture. the last thing I'd barter with is ammo. I'll stick with my 9mm & .223. If I hunt big game my 30.06 :-)

It's fun to shoot and still economical but for self defense I use 9mm since it's a controllable multi shot round for me!!

It is to hard to find right now. And I reload .38spl, .357mag, .45LC, and .45acp. And because I reload these I don't shoot my 2 firearms that shoot .22lr.

Because I don't own a 22 rifle and the 22 pistol I have is a POS. In general, the cost of shooting has gotten beyond me. I'll let others run up their credit cards.

Cant reload, small caliber for self defence. Its ok for small game, but basic or compound bow would be better for hunting. Quiet and better for all sizes of game, from rabbit to bear.

Yes and no. If I'm on the road or out past dark I do carry a backup. IF it's to do a few errors during the day then I normally carry my everyday pistol. But always carry an extra mag on me.
