if u r, you have 356 TSW prefrags in your pocket gun, and you fire many thousands of rds a year at relevant practice (ie, very fast, inside 10 ft) If you're not, you might as well just have a M21 Beretta .22 in your pocket, because you are just bluffing, regardless of what gun, load, or rig you choose. You're just a plinker, hoping he never has to fire. All the .32's, 380's, 38 snubs, and Mak's are just bluff's. Deep down, everyone knows that they are just as likely to fail to stop as the .22lr is. They just can't make themselves CONSCIOUSLY admit that fact. It's like having 6". You "feel superior to a guy who "only has 4", but what you WISH you had is 8".
