average cop can't ccw draw, hit chest, 1.5 sec

at 10ft, average of 5 tries, cold start including their .20 reactiion time to the timer's beep.. A master shottist CAN reliably hit the head at that distance, 3 times, in that same 1.5 seconds, using a .22. So who's better armed, hmm? I do not advocate that the 22 is better than a proper load, but you're gd fool to scoff at the .22, when it's in the hands of a master.

And when did you make up these statistics? A Master shoots something like four or five thousand rounds a month, not every forty years or so.

"Who's better armed?" - In that situation, whoever has better gear is better armed. Whoever is faster and more accurate, is better trained. Like many Americans, you keep searching for some way to get around the fact that you haven't trained in decades. New gear doesn't make you more capable; and your capability has been neglected since at least Reagan, maybe Carter.

That said, I never 'scoffed' at the .22 round. I know I can thru-&-thru many human size animals with a properly-loaded 22LR; when it's fired from a gun that enables it. What I did point out was the mathematical reality of the weakness of a 22LR when it's fired from a pocket pistol.

A .22 rifle is much more powerful than the same load thru even a full size .22 pistol; and HUGELY more powerful than the same load thru a tiny pocket pistol. Even with the Stinger that you constantly bring up, look at measured results; from BBTI or somewhere if you don't have your own chronograph. To stay with publicly-viewable info let's stick with BBTI - from the rifle, the stinger is a measured 317% more powerful from a typical 18" rifle, than from the 21A. Yes, MORE than 300%; and keep in mind it's still just a .22LR rifle after all. Looked at from the other direction - even with your beloved Stingers, the 21A (which unlike you, I actually own) has 31 percent of the power of a pitiful 22 rifle. That's not opinion, it's physical reality.

You say the 22 pocket pistol (with it's 50-59 ft/lbs of energy AND the reduced reliability of a rimfire cartridge) will "rock your world", yet say that a factory-loaded .380 (which is three times as powerful) is "a joke". Right...

The laws of physics are much like the laws of society. Some of them we like, and some of them we don't; but either way, you ignore them at your own peril.

As they sometimes say on another forum I go to "You can't buy skill"....and I'll say you can't imagine it either nor weapons you don't posses or an imaginary wife who owns them either.
