Although I wouldn't recommend a .22 for Self-Defense, it obviously worked here.

Police Release 911 Tape Reporting Duluth Shooting
Woman shot, killed intruder who confronted her with knife in her home as she exited shower.
By Faye Edmundson | Email the author | May 21, 2011


Gwinnett Police have released a recording of the 911 call made by a Duluth woman after she shot the knife-wielding intruder who attacked her at home last Wednesday (May 11). Her assailant, identified by police as Israel Perez Puentes, 34, of Alpharetta, died later from the gunshot wounds.





In case you don't know where this is, it is in GA.

The shower is one of the most vulnerable places you can be, I couldn't imagine getting out of my shower and having someone with a knife in the same room.

"Her assailant died later of gun shot wounds."

Not sure what to say here. Her .22 stopped her attacker. That is the main goal, IMO. He also only had a knife. If he'd had a gun, he may still have been shooting.....

There are plenty of exceptions. You can shoot someone 10 times with a .45 and they keep coming.

I have just seen too many videos of attackers getting shot and continuing to shoot, or jumping back over counters and collapsing 100 yrds away....to consider a .22 to carry for self-defense.

That's just me. I carry a 9mm and that certainly isnt heavy duty. (Altho I carry +p). But I chose that because I could afford to practice more with 9mm, and have 18 rounds ready to go, hoping that I can deliver the goods fast enough and accurate enough to STOP them. I intend to keep shooting until they STOP.

They'd be so busy tripping over dogs in that small space, they wouldnt have a chance

In the shower? If it happened to me a massive heart attack caused by my 65+ yr old body A 22 would only be needed to put the man out of his misery.

Glass vases can also be used for self defense (thrown, smashed over heads, etc). Doesn't make it a good idea to rely on one.
