Well, according to this video, the Velocitors expand, even from a pistol.
Color me impressed...
A better one from Tnoutdoors9. Expansion in gel from a rifle is even better..
For AustinN4, start at the 2:49 mark.
8 minute video! - nope, I'll take your word for it since you already watched it.
Lol, fast forward to the 2:30 mark and watch the next 3 minutes.
None wants to be shot.
No one wants to be shot with a .22.
I suspect that all of us, here, know there are better defensive calibers, of course.
This thread is about "If you....."
The .22 Velocitor seems to answer the OP pretty well.
I'm going to buy some.
Carry the biggest little caliber possible!
I have been using velocitors for a few years. Even shot a small pig with one from about 40 yards. DRT. They by far are the hardest hitting .22lr and do expand reliably. If you can do your part I have little doubt that a .22 will do the job if needed. Obviously there are better choices for most of us, but I can see a reason why some choose it.
while there are more effective rounds available, i prefer CCI #0056 Subsonics because they're extremely quiet in my marlin. kind'a like having a suppressor on it. being able to hear well during a self-defense situation is usually considered an important thing.
I keep electronic ear muffs beside the bed to protect my hearing in the event I need to shoot indoors.
But I'm not going to carry a. 22 as an EDC because I'm worried about my hearing.
