Thread: SR22 for CC

    Talking SR22 for CC

    Hi Everybody! I am new the world of CCW. I wanted to get opinions on carrying a Ruger SR22 as a daily carry weapon. I wanted to get something that was easy to carry and that was easily concealable and thought this might be a good idea. Any wisdom that could be given would be greatly appreciated. I already own a Ruger SR9 for target use but it is too big for me to carry concealed.

    Hi, I have had my CCW Permit for over a year, I bought A Ruger LCP 380 Auto, It is small & Thin, I use A pocket Holster to carry in my Pants Pocket,
    It is very easy to carry un-noticed , And it shoots very well, I love my Ruger 380, It holds 6 bullets in the Magazine And I keep it (HOT), So that is a total of 7 shots, I hope & Pray that I will never need to use it, But I believe in the 2nd Amendment, And I believe in the right to Protect myself as well.
    REMEMBER, When you need help in seconds, Help is minutes away. Thanks & God Bless you

  3. It's generally not recommended to rely on a .22 rimfire, as even in the more expensive rimfire ammunition, the priming method is not known for reliability. Practice failure to fire drills so if you need to rely on your SR22 and the ammo fails, you go into auto-pilot. Good luck!

    I would not recommend a .22 unless you simply can not shoot anything larger. There are plenty firearms with larger calibers that are smaller or as small as the sr22.

    Check out sr9c, xd compact, glock compacts, m&p compact. If you want to carry even smaller then the sr22, look at micro pistols for your pocket.

    So unless the .22 is the only round you can shoot precisely, I advise you not to carry one.

  5. Personally, I carry a 380 almost all the time. Not too big and not too heavy. I have a DB380 by Diamond Back. My son likes the 9 mm variety. Diamond Back has a 9mm equivalent that is only very slightly larger than the 380 version. Both feel good. You may want to check them out.

  6. I agree with what's already been stated. I have a few different carry firearms, for various reasons. I recently picked up the the S&W M&P Shield 9mm. It is very light, easy to conceal, very easy to shoot. Now it has a little snap, but it is very controllable. Some people may have concerns because it's new to the market, but I've put a couple hundred rounds through with no issues whatsoever. Galco has an IWB that will already work with it, as well as the other vendors who have made other accessories as well. I've worn it for a whole day and it felt like I was carrying a .380. If you can find one, or even one of the other really good compact firearms out there.....give them a shot. Check for rentals at your local range....it's a really good place to get a feel for new firearms.

    This is such awesome advice. Thanks to everyone for giving me some great ideas. I now know what I need to look into for my CCW now. Looks like the 380 is where I might start looking.

  8. Might as well carry a pellet gun as a 22.

    Ok I'll shoot you with my 22 and you can shoot me with your pellet gun. Fair trade?

    Lets set things straight.
    A 22 WILL KILLED SOMEONE. IT WILL KILL THEM JUST AS DEAD AS A .50 AE. DEAD IS DEAD IS DEAD.

    Now. You do have to be more accurate, and know where to hit (same with other larger ones) the difference is. Instead of having. 380 inch to hit with you have .22 inch. Yes. A .32 acp has more power.
    If your within 22 feet. (Max average shooting for self-defense) just as long as you hit the kill zone you are okay.
    22 or 380 I don't care. I don't want to be shot with either.
