    Guilty as charged on the 30-30. I think I was just using that as an example of a hunting gun, pressed into SHTF duty.

    Now...if our side arm were to become a 22 pistol, I vote shotgun hands down. Speaking of 10/22...can we through the charger model into the mix?

    Personally, I am a huge fan of the 10-22. Deadly accurate, extremely reliable, high-capacity, no recoil, portable and swift to bring to action. What's not to like? Yes, it is only a lowly .22, but I wouldn't feel under gunned in all but the most extreme circumstances. (Think masses of invaders attacking in force.) I have shot to great effect all manner of domestic and wild animals with mine up to several hundred pounds. Shot placement is more crutial than with a larger caliber weapon, but volume of fire into the chest region of any animal has something to be said for it also. It is also a great training gun for those with less experience or those who are recoil shy. 4 well trained kids under 12 years old armed with 10/22's would provide far better security than one man with a 30-06. 4 kids with 10/22's and an adult with a 30-06 would be a potent force.

    .22lr is fine for plinking and squirrels but anyone who uses it for a defensive weapon against a human IMO is nuts. Minimum handgun round is .380 and minimum rifle round is .223. Methinks. Save the 22's for squirrels and frogs.

    I can't say I agree with you on a lot of that, especially the end part about the 4 well trained 12 year olds with 10/22's and 1 adult with a .30-06 being a potent force. The way I see it 1 adult, a capable shot and cold heart could simply shoot the 1 adult when their a target of opportunity with a little patiences, and when the 4 kids fall apart mentally, as regardless their still kids, and are standing in the open, crowded around, looking at the dead adult lying around the ground, crying, they pick them off like carvival shooting gallery targets fast and easy.

    CSI-tech, While I tend to agree on a personal level that a 22RF is no weapon for self defense there are always exceptions.
    No matter what gun you have it is better that the one you left at home if you need a gun.
    Beware the man who only has one gun - he probably knows how to use it.
    I have a brother who used to shoot the tops of squirrel heads - snap shooting at unreasonable distances. If someone can shoot that well with a 22 it could be effective as a defense weapon.
