Gun experts, your input for a .22 LR
I'm about to buy one, just let me know how good is it for hunting and maybe defense.
EDIT: Its mainly for exterminating hogs around the farm, they are causing me a lot of damage to fences and crops. For defense I already have 9mm and shotgun. In an emergency scenario it might help with aid of the other ones.

Um, no. That won’t do jack squat.

If you’re going to get a rifle, at least get a .223

I see... the thing is, getting good firearms or high caliber here in Brazil is something close to impossible. The .22 is the one I can buy now and afford it.

My recommendation as well. Equip it with the 25 round magazine. Many denigrate the .22 LR as a self defense round, but you can do a lot of damage with 25 rounds.

Understood. If that’s the case, get what you can.

Smith and Wesson makes a decent 22LR rifle (M&P Sport).

Op I don’t believe in guns but I’m fine with people Owning them. In fact in public when I see people with guns because here it’s open carry it makes me feel safe

If you hunt plz show gratitude . All I ask. And you might say who are you. And you are right I am but a speck. But hunting is interesting on a karmic scale if you believe that.

Anyways I’m not judging I eat meat also.
I will dwell in you. And you in me. And I will walk with my people .

Its a good call, but not as simple as it sounds. They are VERY suspicious of anyone asking for guns. You gotta have the "right connections" in order to get something and get out alive.

It's not ideal but better than nothing. CCI stinger rounds will kill. A 22 to the head is likely to kill. If someone cant handle a center fire round. 22 ain't a bad option.

Hogs are a REAL problem in my farm. They breed A LOT and they can devastate a patch very quickly. Already suffer some good losses on potato and corn patches. I need to exterminate them. Its legal to do so, since they are not a local species. The ones we have are a cross between domestic pigs and wild hogs.

The ammo is not a problem. I got the ammo press and molds to "craft" them. These are easy to get, many lathe professionals sell them around here, for any kind of ammo.

That’s good for practicing and target plinking, otherwise small varmint hunting. Given ALL ammo is scarce as it is you’re better off going for something a little more powerful if for hunting and especially if for self defense.

Re: Gun experts, your input for a .22 LR
.22LR can get the job done, but it’s all about shot placement (head shots, critical organ shot, etc.). It’s best suited for some self-defense situations and hunting small game. It is considered a sniper tool too. For hunting large game, you should really prefer something that would outright kill the animal, rather than just cruelly wound the animal and then it lingers on in pain and you have to chase after it.

In better times, you can buy 22 LR ammunition by the bucket load and learn your marksmanship that way. And I would argue that training your marksmanship is one of the biggest reasons to get 22 LR. Plus, you can pair it up with a 22 LR revolver. And they make a nice pair.

If you can get the Ruger 10/22 takedown model, I like that one the best. And as someone mentioned above, the 25 round mags are really nice.

no one ever volunteers to get shot by .22lr

it's way better than nothing!

OP, you need to practice with it. Shot placement is very important.

Also remember, that a .22lr is extremely unlikely to kill anyone immediately. You'll need follow up shots, plus the mindset that you'll probably have to engage your attacker hand to hand... at least he's weakened :)
