Molotov makes a great case, interesting to listen to...can't say I totally disagree...still love my 45 though...
I can see the logic, but it's about shot placement. I think the caliber argument is idiotic. It doesn't matter what caliber you shoot if you can't place the shot somewhere that will stop the attacker. He does go over that, but I can tell you that I would rather have something that can make it through thick clothing. Granted, he mentions that as well but I'll bet he's never been in that situation before. Good luck getting a head shot on a moving target. This isn't the movies.
I do carry a .380 Bersa Thunder CC model and I trust it to do the job.
he makes very good points. and i will make another. training with your carry gun is more important than many if not most of the other considerations. and you can afford to train with a 22 more. small women will be willing to train with a 22 more and longer. shot placement under stress depends on training.
