I sure like the weight and the round count on this thing,
But I have serious concern about the ability to stop a meth head DEAD in his tracks with a 22 mag fired through a short barrel.
Their will be huge muzzle flash and little gain over a regular 22.
I have a 22 mag rifle, I love the thing, not a PD round in my opinion.
Hand gun is cool if it has longevity, you will have to give us a report after a thousand rounds fired down the pipe.
I wanted high round count when I first started concealed carry. I got the Springfield xdm 9mm 19 round. That gun was pretty hard to conceal. I've since switched to a ruger lcp 380. Smaller round count. But it's so easy to conceal, and I just keep an extra mag in my other pocket.
To each his own about stopping power and caliber, personally I want my conceal carry to be .380 and above.
