I always agree with his adapter logic in most cases. Not sure I agree with wasting money on a single shot pocket pistol adapters or not. For one thing if it is a last shot defense thing why bother with a .22 adapter?Each his own I guess.
PP, I believe his point was, as he said, for the common man that can't afford a five hundred dollar handgun in their 'get home bag.' Thanks, my friend.
That looks like great choice for a dedicated "stays in the kit all the time" gun - along with an ammo stash, of course. Not everyone has funds to buy a handgun that will stay in a kit full time for emergencies. At $100 a gun it would take some of the sting out of it. I was scratching my head over the need for a .22 barrel adapter in a last ditch gun too.... maybe it was because if you used up whatever ammo you have in your kit, .22 might be easier to scrounge up than .45 LC or .410?
It's the 'rule of three.' If, you are reduced to nothing but .22 long rifle, at least you have a chance. I have adapters up the wazoo and use my .22 more than most...all my adapters are for 12 gauge. Thanks, my friend.
I am with Pioneer. The logic of a 22LR in a derringer has me puzzled.Derringers are 5 foot guns, which is the typical distance that women worry about from their assailants. Call it a "getting jumped in the parking lot gun". At five foot, you don't need a lot of target practice and the recoil throwing off you aim is a non-issue.
The point isn't the .22, it's the cheapness of the firearm and with multiple adapters it gives you, choice. Remember, the rule of three. A back-up to a back-up to a back-up. Thanks, my friend. Nice work of late on your book reviews.
Agree that this is a good 'last ditch' gun, but I tend to agree with Paladin...
When you're reduced to nothing but .22, it sure beats throwing a rock. Thanks, my friend.
Get home bag? What good does it do you packed away? I bet everyone here has something better they can spare for the bag. There will be plenty of time to open the safe and no need to leave an unsecured firearm around. If it's a carry gun, there are better choices. It will take just as long to unholster something a little more meaningful in that hypothetical parking lot. Kind of cool and certainly low priced, but I don't really see a real use for it.
Yes, 'get home bag,' as apposed to a 'bug out bag.' Don't confuse the two. A get home bag stays in your vehicle and well, helps you get home during a bad emergency either man made or of natural design.One should always keep a last ditch firearm (normally a handgun) inside your get home bag. As most haven't the means to leave a four or five hundred dollar revolver or pistol twenty four/seven in their bags the little single shot above is a fine pick...it's cheap. Adapters give you selectivity to ammunition. I mean, really, how many folks do you know with a supply of .45 long colt in their vehicle. Thanks, Muddy.
I see. Thanks! A new term for me. That makes a bit more sense. However, when you buy the gun, pick up the 45 long and pack them together. No need for the adapters which drive up the cost. No?
Muddy, one of the first rules, as a Survivalist, is to live by the rule of three. Back-up to a back-up to a back-up. Let's say you are x miles from home. You have one box of ammo (God forbid) and you use your twenty or fifty rounds. Now what. With adapters for weapons that accept them, say like a twelve gauge shotgun, you now have a means of use of several calibers. Rule of three, again. This video just gives you another idea, or choice, for survival. Personally I keep an old inexpensive .22 revolver in my get home bag. I have the same in my wife's GHB. Both bags stay in our vehicles and when I travel the truck bag is moved to the other vehicle, along with its attached medical kit and a cased rifle with spare loaded magazines. Of course my personal carry weapon is attached to my belt. Hope this helps. Guess I should write a piece on the subject. Thanks.
I have a little 5 shot 22 magnum derringer that is no larger, (I think smaller), cost me about $100.00 new with both 22LR and Magnum cylinders,(true, a few years ago), and makes more sense than a 22lr single shot for "up close & personal". That will be in my new "Get Home Bag" True it's a "noise" gun, but at night the magnum also makes an impressive large flame, a deterrent of sorts as at night the other guy can't really see how big it is. Not at all accurate after a couple of yards and the sights are useless.
The little five shot works just fine, Muddy. Try and keep the bag light. I use an old surplus European rucksack. Water, and a water filter system is a must. Google is your friend. Some refer to the bags as 72 hour bags...build your own. Medical kits, I feel too, are very important. Again, buy or scrounge the components. Good luck, and thanks.
I was hoping he'd show it using the .410. I can't imagine the kick. Last shot? I don't plan on needing a .410 for a last shot if my 7 shot magazine doesn't get the job done. And .22? I think having to be that up close and personal for a .22 makes for good outcome.
Joy, see all above...quiz at ten...
If you have that in your GHB, and run out of food. Having the adapter in 22, I would think would be good for popping a bunny, if you needed to.I've seen the adapter for shot guns. Pretty neat, and would be good to have on hand. Just my two cents worth.
