I bought the Thunder .22 to compliment my Thunder .380. With the .22 I can spend all day at the range practicing without breaking the bank. I cannot say the same for the .380. I use my .380 for CC, but would have no compunction about using my .22. In close quarters. The .22 is a versetile and invaluable caliber.. You can get off 10 rounds in the time it takes to get off 2 "big bore" rounds. If you miss, which is more likeley with big bore rounds, you are in a world of hurt.

Getting out 10 .22 rounds in under 5 seconds gives you a distinct advantgage. The Israli Mossad uses the .22 for their sky marshalls. The .380 is the perfect self defense round for me. If you cannot incapacitate a perp with 7 rounds you have a problem. I looked at the 9mm but the cartridge is oversized for the gun. I have 2 Ruger P89s 9mms that I use as my car carry weapons. The P89 is appropriately sized for the caliber.

I am 5 ' 10 and 185 and find the ultra compact 9mm to be too snappy and miss much more frequently than with a .380. Larger bore guns are more appropriate for the military and law enforcement where you are usually shooting at a distant and moving target.
