Default 22 vs drywall

I can't count how many times people badmouth rifles for home defense and say they use a pistol because it won't over penetrate or won't penetrate as many walls. Hopefully, most here are educated enough to see that for the ignorance that it is. Aside from the fact that many rifle rounds will actually penetrate less, any cartridge suitable for defensive use will easily penetrate several interior walls. Here is a little video showing 22 LR hollow points vs drywall.

The good ol' box of truth. Rifles are rifles. Pistols are pistols. Shooting stuff is fun.
