Bill Burr Recommends A .22 To Elijah Wood On Conan

Bill Burr gives poor home defense advice embedded in jokes:

Yea yea I know a “well placed shot” from a .22LR could take down a rhino or a grizzly bear…  For home defense I don’t agree with the advice though.  If you use a .22LR for home defense, and you convinced yourself it’s the best possible caliber to stop bad guys then great.

Bill-Burr-Comedianhahah a sickle.  That was good…

I posted some Bill Burr gun humor in the past you can check out.

Thoughts?

I’ve been using “It was the 80’s” as an excuse since January 1990.

It all depends on the weapon, 22LR is definitely a decent home defence caliber if you’re shooting it out of one of these:

Accuracy by volume, a “well placed shot” is statistically almost inevitable :)

“Assassins” really tried to hype .22s.

Not without historical precedent, the OSS – forerunner to the CIA – certainly thought 22s useful for quiet work: http://referenceonly.wordpress.com/2011/07/24/hi-standard-oss-pistol/

Mossad thought the same: http://www.tactical-life.com/tactical-weapons/israeli-mossad-22-lrs/

Of course ambushing an unsuspecting target at close range is not the same thing as confronting a home invader.

It was a joke. I find the guy pretty funny in this clip.

Awesome, and maybe shows that the lefties are warming up to gun ownership a little.

Nah.

Was thinking the same exact thing…yes, it was in the context of a comedy routine, but it’s still progress

i doubt a halfling could manage bigger than a 22 carbine, leave the bigger weapons to the other races.

A .22LR fired inside a house will definitely make your ears ring for hours if not a few days. I did this with no ear pro a few months ago with a .22LR revolver. Fired out of the front door at the door frame. Bad idea.
