.22 is a small round, but that doesn't mean it is useless.

So true, naysayers - let yourself get shot in the face with a .22 and then report back on it's ineffectiveness.

BTW, Marlin has always been the everyday rifle - if your doing high end target shooting there are others but that's an entirely different story. Savage as #2 behind marlin

Some of you have obviously never hunted boars before, shoot them with a .22lr and not get a kill shot - they will charge you. I have seen a single boar kill two pit bulls before.

Re: Gun experts, your input for a .22 LR
All I can think about is bacon while reading this thread. Mmmm bacon. I'll just take the dead hogs. Are they gamey tasting?

The marlin 60 has a ammo tube and holds 15 rounds.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79351600


Well....
1 - They are a NIGHTMARE to skin. Very hard thick leather
2 - The meat is infested with tons of parasites
3 - They are not that fat, so very little bacon
4 - Meat is chewy and kinda tasteless
 Quoting: MaybeTrollingUAgain


1 - reciprocating saw will cut anything
2 - ivermectin for bugs and covid...bonus
3 - no bacon...im out
4 - dog food than

Thanks for the education on your feral hogs in brazil. Good luck with eradicating them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74322544


Technically, more people have been killed by a .22 caliber than any other caliber bullet.

This doesn't mean they are good at killing humans, but it also means they can still kill.

The difference is that I would have to be an excellent shot to kill a moving target with a .22lr, while I only need to be conscious enough to pull a trigger with a 12 gauge shotgun.

It isn't about killing dipshit. Take a .22 round to the nuts or in the eye and let us know how that works out for you.

For a smart person, you sure are fucking thick.

Besides, .22 is a small game round but any port in storm. Or are to stupid to understand that if you are under attack you respond with anything and everything you have.

Re: Gun experts, your input for a .22 LR
most .22 human deaths are up close and personal. short range headshot. multiple shots.

on animals that's not happening. it's going to be mid to long range and a .22 just won't do shit unless you get a perfect ideal shot. which while possible isn't likely.

.410 slug/triple works pretty good.

Potentially lethal doesn't mean it'll do the job regularly.

It means - if you get lucky & hit the right spot @ the right angle it has a chance of being lethal...

Start shooting hogs with a .22 & you're going to have some pissed off hogs...

1/2 pine doesn't account for boar/hog hide - they're talking about a human with a lot thinner skin.

I have 180 acres in Texas with plenty of 300lb+ hogs and am inviting you personally to come shoot hogs with a .22lr while I film and laugh my ass off as you get fucking charged and attacked by them.

Re: Gun experts, your input for a .22 LR
Look, I'm not saying .22 is the absolute bestest caliber you could ever own.

I just get tired of people shitting on it.

I used to kill rabbits hanging around my garden. Now I shoot out the window a 1/2 inch under their ass and persuade them to go and dine elsewhere.

They're not smart at first, it takes several rounds to get them to figure it out (especially the young ones).

.22 is a tool.

You can beat on a wall with a hammer and say, "It doesn't work!" Or you a build something.
