    The article concerning 22 LR and 22 WMMR for self defense makes sense if one sticks to the 22 WMMR round. There are plenty of revolver and semi-auto pistols for this round which packs a punch superior to the 22 LR round. Granted that it is not a round for self defense compared to the higher calibers, but a full revolver or magazine load will do the trick. It is very easy to shoot that even a toddler can handle.

    Accurate "shot placement" is the key to making any round a good defense round.

    .22 wmr is not bad. Is it a .45 no but some of the hornady stuff is pretty effective. And Steve is right. Shot placement is key. You can't miss fast enough.
