For those of you who carry a pocket .22 for backup, is there a particular ammo you use and recommend? I'm not meaning regular range ammo unless you feel that's sufficient.:)

The nice thing about the "better" .22 ammo is it's still plenty cheap to try. Don't have the pistol you are talking about but Wife does often carry a compact .22 by Ruger. I have her using CCI Velocitor ammo in it. .40 gr ammo said to hit over 1400FPS. Of course have to make sure it works in the pistol but, the up side is it's still cheap enough to not hurt to try a couple hundred to make sure. I like this stuff as it is heavy for .22 ammo so hopefully would get some decent penetration out of the little round coming out of a short tube like this.

I'm in the CCI-Mini Mag and Velocitorgroup. Very reliable. Not my first choice for a carry gun, but a .22 in your pocket is better than the .45 at home.
I'm going to try and get some of the Stingers and Velocitor's to try. The Bobcat isn't going to be a primary carry gun. It's just going to be in my pocket in case something were to happen to my primary!:s0155:

    This shop is an extortion racket. It’s the only one in town and charges like a monopoly. He can’t fulfill commitments and he won’t provide estimates.
