    better than no gun, and more trustworthy than a .22 automatic since if it doesn't go bang you can just pull the trigger again, but I'd much rather carry a J-frame in .38 if we're talking small wheelbois.

      Or maybe a 351c in 22mag? 7 shots. Taurus 942 is an 8-shot 22mag, but does not have a concealed hammer.

      You get 8 rounds of .22 vs 5 rounds of .38. Also less recoil and easier to shoot.

        and .38 is many orders of magnitude more likely to actually stop an attacker and kill them. There are many cases of people being shot by .22lr and not realizing it until minutes later.

        Is a meme. Shot placement is all that matters. If you shoot someone some place where they don't even notice they've been shot because of how non vital it is, then you're realistically going to see the same with any other handgun calibers unless you're so close to something actually vital that the fractions of an inch difference in bullet diameter cause the bullet to nick it.

        seems kinda dumb for defensive purposes unless you were somehow barred from owning anything other than 22lr but it would still be better than nothing. if i were set on carrying a snub i would get a .357 and load 4 of the chambers with .38

          It kind of makes sense if you're more worried about varmints. I live in a fairly crime free neighborhood in Arizona but I have coyotes, javelinas, bobcats and the occasional cougar wandering around (mostly the latter two) so i carry a .380 when I walk my dog. Haven't had to use it yet even when I encounter animals but just given the sheer number of encounters I have I feel like it's pretty likely that something might eventually happen.

            first shot is the most important one but .357 recoil out of a snub can be pretty punishing, which was the given reason for them carrying 22lr

            It's common practice in some corners. The first shot is the most important, so you load .357 Magnum to get the most performance out of that shot. But recoil out of an airweight snubby is pretty nasty, so you load .38's for your follow up shots in case you have to rapid-fire, making recoil more manageable and ensuring you maintain control over your gun.

            I just get an all-steel snubby and load all five chambers with .357, but the above practice is a legitimate strategy.

        The only reason you would need 3 extra shots is because the first 5 didn't work. Black folk and hispanics generally carry cheap, shitty revolvers and automatics in .22, 25, and .32, and most of the people shot with these calibers survive. Many don't even realize they've been shot until after the fact and just beat the shit out of their shooter. Get a real caliber and you can drop them with one shot, not worry about whether or not your mugger has a thick leather jacket, or is too fat for the bullet to hit something vital, or the bullet is stopped by a bone. I sometimes carry a .25 pocket pistol, but only because any gun is better than no gun and it's so tiny that I can hide it anywhere; that doesn't apply to a revolver that's the same size and weight as one in a real caliber. Get a .38, at minimum. And don't use "muh cheaper ammo for practice" as an excuse, you're not going to practice that much in the first place because you're obviously poor and lazy, and .38 isn't expensive. Get a real caliber that will actually stop the threat with proper shot placement, not piss him off.

            Mediocre. The deepest penetrating .22lr is on the low end of what people argue to be ideal for gel penetration.
            Breaking a spine with a rib and seven inches of soft tissue in the way is reasonably achievable for 9mm, 38sp, etc, depending on ammo selected, but hopeless with any .22lr.

      I bought a Ruger .22 LCR (loaded CCI Mini-Mags copper plated LRN for greater penetration) a couple of years back as an apartment gun, as the small caliber decreases the chances of accidentally shooting a neighbor thru the thin walls and I think it would make a nice carry gun, though my carry piece is a NAA .32 Guardian.

      is the trigger pull really that much heavier on these than the centerfire LCRs?

    I got a .38 special revolver a few months back before I even knew about .357 magnum and I regret my purchase so much it's insane. Maybe it's just because I have big hands, but the recoil for .38 special is very manageable and I'd much rather have 2x more power of a .357 magnum revolver. I'm so depressed about owning such a puny gun, man...

    How do I cope?

      >but the recoil for .38 special is very manageable
      That's normal. It's also one of the reasons why people recommend .38's for carry, it's easy to shoot accurately in a small gun.

      If you're talking about a full-size pistol then why not sell yours or trade it in and upgrade to a .357? You can always shoot .38's out of it if you want. On the other hand if this is a small pocket gun? You will want to try out that .357 snubbie before you buy one. That's doubly true if you're looking at an alloy frame one. I have seen this happen at the range more times than I can count:
      >Dude wants to shoot a 357 snubbie
      >He starts with .38s and does just fine, makes a great group.
      >Feeling good and having fun now he loads up with .357s
      >First shot is on target and now the shooter is wide awake, feeling like someone just whipped the palm of his hand.
      >Shooter goes to fire his second shot. Attempting to compensate for the recoil the follow-up shot is sixteen inches low at 5 yards.
      >Shot number three isn't even on the paper and strikes the dirt in front of the target.
      >Shooter realizes he's now got a real bad flinch, is embarrassed to shit about his group, and really wants to make this next shot count. Luckily, it's on the paper this time. But it's 8 inches right. And high. Man his palm hurts.
      >Shot number five. He can't help himself anticipating the recoil again, this one's a foot low.

        Personal experience checks out here. My noguns dad had no trouble at all with the .38s, and while he handled the recoil of the .357 quite well, he was considerably more deliberate with each shot.
        And this was out of a 6inch barrel, I would not want to give a snubbie to a newer shooter.

      .38 Special was invented before smokeless had really gone mainstream. Many .22 ammo makers, for example, sold "semi-smokeless" loaded with a mix of black powder and smokeless powder, something that would alarm more than a few people today, simply because many people didn't trust the newfangled technology. .38 Special was made with a larger case partly so it could be loaded with black powder and achieve roughly the same performance, and partly so idiots wouldn't try loading a smokeless cartridge into a revolver made for .38 S&W or .38 Colt black powder cartridges and blow up their guns. .357 Magnum is what happened when they loaded the .38 Special case to its true potential, then they lengthened it slightly to prevent idiots from loading it into .38 revolvers not designed to handle the increased pressure and recoil.

      And .357 Maximum exists just because it's awesome.

        Most people don't realize how long black powder stuck around. I've heard people claim that .38 special moved over to being loaded with smokeless powder almost immediately after it was released. In reality, here's a Sears catalog from 1912 (handgun ammo on the bottom left), 14 years after .38 special was released and 26 years after the first successful smokeless powder started seeing use, and they only sold .38 special loaded with black powder at that time. In fact, the only handgun ammo sold loaded with smokeless powder in this catalog is ammo for autoloaders and ammo intended for use in rifles that you happened to be able to get a handgun chambered in.

        Ok smooth brain, the LCR grip is STILL better without having to buy any weird chode looking grip. The trigger is still better on the LCR, and having owned both the controls are better on LCR. You can also replace the front sight on the LCR with a Tridium sight which you can't do on 99% of J frames.

        The LCR is a better gun than the J-frame.

                The gap between my pistol skills and confidence when I had fired less than 1000 rounds and my skill today now that I've fired well over 10k rounds through a variety of pistols is absolutely massive.

                i never said shooting a lot doesn't make you better, moron. but a CCW gun is most likely going to be used at very short range, an argument you've most likely used yourself to defend your shitty choice in CCW guns.

                Imagine outing yourself as a fingerlet this severely. Buy a hand gripper and quit having girly hands
                >shitter grip
                It generally conceals a lot better than semi-autos, unless you're specifically referring to the LCR, which has a fatass 2 finger grip which sucks dick
                >third of the capacity
                If you compare them to basically full-size semi-autos, yeah, but in the pocket gun scene the difference is much more negligible

                I mean, yeah, I thought that was quite obvious. Also if your revolver has an actually shitty trigger then you got a shitty revolver, otherwise if you can't work a double action trigger then just say that instead of calling it shitty

                defending heavy triggers by calling their haters weak is a childish argument. no one willingly chooses a heavy trigger, its why every beretta 92 owner immediately switches out the trigger springs.

                Not that anon, but I prefer DA triggers (so long as they're smooth like a good DA trigger should be) over SA and I don't care that they're heavier. DA lets you practice your rapid fire trigger control while dry firing at home, which can go a long way with helping you shoot better. If you're seriously worried about your trigger weight making that much of a difference in your shooting and you aren't dealing with a trigger that's overall god awful, then you need to be worrying less about min-maxing numbers on paper and more about actually practicing.

          >who cares how cheap it is? its a carry pistol. you don't need to fire a thousand rounds to be decent with it.
          >t. doesn't shoot
          The gap between my pistol skills and confidence when I had fired less than 1000 rounds and my skill today now that I've fired well over 10k rounds through a variety of pistols is absolutely massive.

    Revolvers are very big locket carry guns. You have to be fat to pull it off. The cylinders are wide and print more than you'd expect. Holsters that hide such printing are rare. A pocket carry is going to print, what you want it to do is print in a square like a wallet or phone. GL getting a revolver to look like a square. .380s are great for pocket carry, very thin and can easily look like a wallet with a wallet holster.

    I've thought about an LCR in .22, mostly as a way to get more trigger time behind a snubnose but also as a possible carry gun if I'm just in a revolver mood. My actual carry revolver would be an SP101 but I'm waiting until revolver prices aren't moronic anymore. Hell, I'm barely seeing .38 and .357 hit the shelves again.

    What about a smol, flat auto like the Kel-Tec P-32? (or the slightly shorter NAA Guardian)
    A flat pocked holster should print like a wallet.

    I've considered it for night walks for pests, I occasionally pocket carry an old Charter Arms Undercover .38 because I don't like shooting small .380s. I've ushered at church pocket carrying larger guns several times so I wouldn't worry too much about printing unless you're small and wear very tight clothing.

    I bought a Ruger .22 LCR (loaded CCI Mini-Mags copper plated LRN for greater penetration) a couple of years back as an apartment gun, as the small caliber decreases the chances of accidentally shooting a neighbor thru the thin walls and I think it would make a nice carry gun, though my carry piece is a NAA .32 Guardian.

    Get a .38 Special. It's cheap, it's more reliable, it's more effective, and you don't have to cope about "muh shot placement" when someone who's considering .22LR specifically because of recoil is likely to have shit aim anyway. Unless you have some rare disease that makes your bones as fragile as glass, there is no excuse for picking a .22 revolver over a .38 of the same size and weight.

      Have you considered that people who would carry .22lr aren't going to carry bulk pack ammo made to the lowest standards possible?

          Even .22lr marketed for self defense use like Federal Punch is common at gun stores and cheaper right now buying a single box locally than buying 9mm in bulk online.
