So I guess the difference between a .45 in the head and a .22 in the head is a lot? I don't think so, as a long time hunter and user of guns I know that I don't need a canon to protect my home.
I respect your views and would defend your views, however I know that in the dark being awaken from a deep sleep, I wouldn't have the accuracy to pull off a nice shot like at a range. This is the reason I choose a 12ga. I like squirrel hunting with a .177 spring action pellet rifle and can accomplish nice clean head shots when wide awake. Most people aren't their sharpest coming out of a deep sleep (and eyes getting use to the light). So If you feel safe with a .22 and can shoot it after waking up, Then I respect your ability as a hunter and your choice for home protection. However, most people who own guns for home protection are not expert hunters. They may require a firearm that is a little more forgiving. We may disagree, but I defend your decision and position !!
