There are some folks out there that think a .22 caliber is not useful for anything other than varmint shooting, they don’t believe that it is worthwhile for self defense…well, allow me to retort. It is a well known fact that with the right ammunition and proper shot placement, that a .22LR round, can bring down an animal as big as a full grown cow. And as we all know, 9 times out of 10, a headshot is always fatal, but this article isn’t about any particular brand of ammunition, or shot placements.
That brings us to the subject of ‘firearms’, specifically, the pistol showcased in the video below : The Standard Manufacturing LLC, Jackhammer .22LR Semiautomatic Pistol.
A semi-auto.22LR pistol with a 50 round drum magazine is a formidable opponent, I don’t care who you are, once the shooting starts, somebody is going to be ducking for cover. And we’re not talking about the Ruger 22 Charger, that’s the subject for another day.
What I am going to do right now, is lay everything out in front of you regarding the Jackhammer and what you decide to do with it, is your business.
