Okay, people. I am more than a little pissed off over what happened in Benghazi. Whether you agree with our being there or not, you should be, too. Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty are true patriotic Americans who acted and died with honor. Their actions saved 20 lives and cost them theirs. Rest in peace, gentlemen. You died well. Now as to this administration and its beaurocrats who watched them die in real time, each one of you are nothing more than sniveling cowards. All you had to do was say go and those men would have lived. You brag about Osama but would not utter a word to save our men. You are all beneath contempt. You did not kill Osama. The SEALS did. Had you been there, your panties would have been soiled and Osama still alive. In closing, let me say a government that allows this to happen is a government not worth saving. You do not leave men behind to die.
Many people do not think of the .22 rimfire for personal protection. The main reason behind this is knock down power. With this in mind let’s take a look at why you may want to reconsider. Israeli Mossad, along with the mafia, used the .22 in target removal for many years. Mossad operatives used a semi-auto, could chamber a round, aim, and drop their target in around one second. Recently a Kentucky farmer killed a punk that broke into his home with one shot. The farmer was in his upper 80’s. I have killed a 300 pound hog with one well placed shot to the head. Size doesn’t always matter. It’s how you use it when talking fire arms. The following is a list of attributes for the .22 rimfire. One, cheap ammo = plenty of practice. Two, light ammo = more rounds per pound. Three, quieter ammo = less chance of drawing attention. Four, the bullets tend to ricochet and travel bone inside flesh and blood target. Five, the bullets break up when bouncing around all that bone = hard to trace back. At the very least, you may want to consider the .22 as a back up weapon.
