About the Cartridge

This cartridge is the oldest of the centerfire .22 calibers in use today. It was developed from an old black-powder cartridge called the .22 Winchester Center Fire. Although not quite as powerful as the .218 Bee, the .22 Hornet has begun to acquire new popularity as a varmint round. It has a mixed reputation for accuracy and its range is limited to about 200 yards.

Fun gun
By RunninNgunnin on 24 Jan 2020
Not really a defensive pistol however quite fun to shoot and maybe some pest control or small predator hunting. The caliber is what makes this not really a good defensive revolver. The gun itself are quite nice. Taurus really stepped up in quality over the past decade.

Mine is very accurate with a great trigger pull, around 2 1/2-3 lbs
