.22 Handgun for Self-Defense? CCI 40 gr Mini-Mag Test

If you were to select a. 22 LR hand gun for individual protection, main backup or carry, what kind of ammo do you assume is most reliable? This is the very first in a series of ammo examinations with a short barrel.22 semi-auto; Ruger SR22P with a 3.5″ barrel.

I am utilizing the CCI Mini-Mag 40 grain copperplated strong in this test, range of 10 feet with the SIM-TEST media (adjusted ballistic gel) as well as 4 layers of jeans per IWBA procedure. My key purpose with this ammo selection is to obtain a suggestion of infiltration opportunities compared to JHP’s examined in bigger qualities, plus a factor of contrast for.22 LR hollowpoints that will be examined in the future.

While the.22 LR is essentially the “lower floor” or last resort in caliber selection for protection, the compact nature of these hand guns combined with low recoil and shootability can make it a practical selection for some individuals. As kept in mind in the video clip, I am NOT promoting this choice, just providing data that may aid you choose.
