No argument from me, i sure would not want to be shot with one! on another note, i lived in NJ for may years in the North Brunswick area. I have a son there now workin HVAC, who is in the New Brunswick area and a daughter who is a teacher in Bridgewater.Snake, we share similar experiences. I have not only been working on this information, but have seen .22 s in action first hand. They stop. All about where one puts them. Also, keep in mind how many fit in a standard mag. If one didn't stop, there are plenty more.
