    I liked it, as it seemed a barrel shoved partly up someones nose just might have a bit more ability to "lead" in the direction wanted.
    You might actually have a little control.
    If you need to get that close for a firearm to do it's job, you have the wrong firearm. A knife would work just as well.
    A gun needs to keep the bad guys beyond arm's length. If it needs to be closer than ten feet to work, a perp with a knife or club will kill you.

    Were I limited to a 22lr, I'd carry my Browning 1911-22. It has been very reliable, holds 10+1 shots, and works just like a full size 1911. Only slightly larger, and more to my liking, I have a prewar sport model Woodsman.

    Of all the .22 autos that I've owned over 50 years, the Colt Huntsman, the S&W 422, and the Beretta m70 come to mind to double as self defense guns. I carry a Ruger Wrangler these days for rural self defense.

    El Al Airlines security folks carried Beretta 22s for many years. They defeated several more heavily armed terrorist in shootouts.
