a gun you can't get into action soon enough. Pocket pistol excells at both being with you andgetting into action. That is, if you dont have your head up your ass too far to NOTICE that something is amiss. If you have the slightest doubt about a location or situation, you simply put your hand in your pocket, ON the gun. Once you have that "ready" positon, you are .50 second (ie, 3 hits, for the skilled man) ahead of a ccw'd belt rig. u can TALK all your bs about your 1911 and your .44 mag all you want, but it will likely not be present when needed,andyou are too slow with it, and a mere .22 handles 95% of what civilians need to handle. The pocket 356 handles 99%, and NOTHING is 100% able to handle all possible attack scenarios.

And the guy who "doesn't have his head up his ass" already has a firing grip on his concealed belt or shoulder rig, too. So much for the ".50 second advantage".

Those with an ankle holster or Thunderwear...well, I guess you could tie your shoes or pretend to be scratching yourself. ;)

In a close encounter situation agains an attacker, especially one that's drunk or on drugs, you want something bigger than a .22LR.

The .356TSW is a non issue since it's essentially a dead cartridge. Might as well advocate using the 11.5mm Montenegran or the 13mm Gyrojet.

And a ex-con on parole, subject to search of himself and his house ANY TIME, for any firearm, part of firearm, any ammunition, or other weapons has nothing. Even if he had a gun he would have to keep it off site to keep it from being discovered. So he has nothing.

The 356 brass is readily available, a simple barrel swap lets you use 9x19 in the same gun, and anybody can reload. You use 9x19 dies to load it, too.

you may WANT somethiung more than 22, but in between 9x19 and .22, nothing has enough more power to matter any, still need LUCK with chest hits, or need brain hits. .22 being 5x as cheap, and considerably milder in blast, more practice and more ABILITY to hit the head is likely with it.

The closer you are, the EASIER it is to hit his head, and the more UNARMED skill matters.

You put your hand on a belt or shoulder rig gun, that's "brandishing", which is a misdemeanor, SURE to get your ccw permit yanked. So what you do is NOT put your hand on, just because things MIGHT be a little "hinky". Those same siturations, hand in pants or coat pocket attracts no attention at all. You have to UNZIP your coat to get AT such rigs, in bad weather, and in hot weather, you aint GOT an open coat, so you have to RAISE your shirt to access the belt rig, or pop the snaps or velcro tabs that hold shirt shut over the shoulder rig. With just a shirt, you have to have a padded thigh strap to tie off the shoulder rig to, which is a BIG PITA. or else the rig shifts on your shoulders, and the gunbutt "runs away" from your hand in a fast draw. You should go argue golf with Tiger Woods. You'd be LESS outclassed than arguing guns and shooting with ME. :)
