While there are those who despise the .22 magnum, I look at it as a fun rimfire round. That and it has more authority in the 4in. barrels over the .22lrf. Especially in the 5 inch,6 inch, or longer barreled guns.

To me it's more about fun with the rimfire. Yes, ammo prices are going up and some .22 magnum loads cost as much as some centerfire rounds. There are .22magnum loads that are in between in price of the centerfire guns and the .22lrf ones.

Granted the .32s and the .38s can do better in some categories, but I have fun shooting the .22 magnum when I want something with more power than the .22lrf pistols and revolvers.

Just a personal choice.

My 80+ year old aunt has two Taurus wheel guns, one being the 4 inch Model 941 which shoots very nicely . ( her bedside gun )

Be advised of two possible issues here :

The rimfire guns require a good deal of hammer bang to be reliable. Couple that with a 8 shot cylinder and the mechanics of the 941 will be such that the double action will be rather stiff. You can not lower this pull to the same levels as you can with larger frame or center fire guns. It will have a heavier DA pull - period .

The second issue is the barrel length . The .22 Mag. has a good deal of muzzle flash and noise in the shorter barrels. Auntie has the 4 inch and that works just fine, the shorter barrel ones will indeed require hearing protection even when out shooting squirrels, or it will ring your ear bells to a degree of discomfort.

With that in mind, the .22 Mag is a nice caliber for small game hunting with a handgun.
