would a 22lr semiautomatic pistol be good for self defense? if so which would be a good choice?

no, a 22 is not good enough for self defense. there was actually just an article about that in one of the recent rifleman magazine issues. the 22 will not have enough of a bullet spread/ penetration to stop someone else with a gun, a bear, a mountain lion, or just a crazy guy on drugs, or whatever else you need protection from.

It wouldn't be my first choice, but if it came down to a 22, or no gun, I'd take the 22
