Thinks it will stop somebody soley based on its a gun and it will scare them.
people are afraid of guns
but if he ever has to use it he better be a good shot
Might as well get airsoft then, at least its cheaper.
That's what he said.
He said .22 can penetrate the skull. I said no shit but you can't hit the skull.
tell me it's a single shot .22 too
Have him sign up on OT and direct him to WMD. We'll take care of him shortly.
Send him to Mugatu and his kick-ass Bersa .380; 50rds in one week and it hasn't jammed :eek2:
dude, i've put almost 3000rds through my bersa thunder .380 and it's still shoots great, no jams no misfires it's flawless.
Well a 22 is better than harsh language and hand gestures. If your going up against a bad guy that is not motivated you "may" have a chance. They may decide to find an easier target after a few bee stings.
Truth is the 22 can be very effective in the right hands. Somebody is going to bring up the fact that the .22 is responsable for a good number of killings etc. The thing is usually when people bring up these "hitman" type scenarios the 22 is usually in the hands of somebody fairly competent and they are choosing time and place of use of force.
In a defensive shooting situation you generally have the cards stacked against you so most of us would try to get as much advantage as possible. This is either a high capacity pistol or a large caliber pistol. The 22 is neither of these, but again any gun is better than no gun.
I shot one once...the trigger wouldn't pull the second time because it jammed
whoever owned it must not know how to maintain their guns properly
I dunno... you gotta try pretty hard to fuck up modern guns nowadays, and that's how it should be IMO.
Shouldn't have to require constant attention and maintenance to keep your gun(s) functional and reliable.
true, that being said. i barely clean my bersa .380 and it works fantastic
i'm confused to as how THT's friend fucked his up
He knows his way around guns and it was basically new (had one mag through it)
i would've returned it for a replacement or $
We just chalked it up to it being a Bersa, put it back in the bag and ran a few hundred rounds through our Glocks and EBRs.
Last year at a halloween party I was at there was a shooting, some big gangsterish dude got hit in the mid thigh with a .22 splintering his femur up pretty well you should have seen the swelling he was laying on the ground crying. We helped him till the EMTs got there. I think If you were to get hit anywhere in center mass with .22 you would be going down maybe not dead but definatley incapicitated.
Your theory sucks.
Someone who is completely sober? Maybe.
Someone with massive adrenaline or other drugs? Don't be so sure...
strange, all the bersa i've shot have been great
Let me shoot you in the lower leg, I can aim so I don't hit bone. One shot. It should be no big deal, right? No hollow point rounds, either. I'll even pay you $250 to take the bullet. We film it and put it up on youtube, one shot through the calf.
