Granted, a 22 LR isn’t a 45 but at close range it will pass right through a human body or a skull. It can do damage at over a mile if you are unfortunate enough to get hit by a misplaced or errant shot. There are many reported incidents of this happening. The thing about a magazine fed 22 is they are prone to jamming due to that rimmed cartridge and also because of improper, or incomplete primer deposits in the rim. I have misfires all the time especially with new ammunition manufactured in places like Australia. John Browning developed the 25 caliber ACP cartridge for more positive feeding in a magazine fed semi auto pistol. There is no rim on the 25 to cause feeding problems and the 25 fires a slightly heavier projectile. More reliable for a carry gun.
