IF you used 22Lr for home defense....
Which gun would you use?
yes, there's lots of discussion on this caliber for HD so I don't want to get into that discussion - but just saying IF ONE CHOSE THIS
I don't think it would be a handgun but an S&W M&P15-22 or Ruger products that use a 25 round clip
at first glance the BG mike think you have a 223AR
then for close quarters maybe the Ruger Charger would be fine
A charger might do just fine,,,
But it certainly would not be my first choice,,,
I would rather have a six-shot DA revolver.
But of the two you mention,,,
I would go for the rifle because of the barrel length,,,
Also it would be more easily brought to bear than that Ruger Charger would be.
The Charger is a nice toy for the range,,,
But it's a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
