Ballistic Testing of .22 LR for Self-Defense

Not sure if this is acceptable as it contains advertising at the conclusion, but some interesting statistics. I even watch Chris' videos that don't pertain to me because he does such a good job. Please remove if not acceptable.

Gravity: More than just a good idea - it's a law!

These kinds of tests would be more relevant if they used gel that had been smoking meth all day.

Rimfire rounds and low power rounds like 6.35 are certainly better than simply calling your assailant hurtful names. They do mange to kill a lot of people every year when wielded by dimwits. I would expect a more informed selection by a reasonable person arming themselves for lawful purposes and would put the absolute minimum at the .32 ACP level with the advice to get the largest caliber you can handle beyond that.

Use enough gun and get enough practice or don't bother.
