.22 wmr and bullet proof vest

Don't think this has been posted or at least my search didn't get any hits.

go to youtube.com/watch?v=XmhmtJvLZQU

If you have any concerns about the wmr for concealed carry take a look at the vid, especially towards the end.

Yes the gun used is a 4" (?) barrel however doesn't the performance indicate that even from a snub the .22 wmr for civilian self defense should not immediately be dismissed ?

Mac has some good info there. The 22 mag definitely has the potential to be nasty.

If you care about expansion, try the Hornady or Speer short barrel ammo. I did a little test of my own with pretty good results. Not up to Mac's level....but good enough for this old fat dad.

Quick edit: My most recent video includes shooting a bullet proof vest with 22 Mag. Spoiler, 4" barrel does not penetrate, rifle barrel does....kind of.
