No sir...don't want a .22 at all but I do carry this in a pocket holster. It's a .380 and with TSX cartridges it's plenty lethal! It's 7 shot...double action every time and the pocket holster protects the trigger which is rather hard but it's designed that way! Also tote a Sig 9MM! I guess you could call me a 'Safety Man'! Quite accurate I might add!

I usually carry one of these three as a everyday carry knife.
What kills me at work ( I teach in a High School Life Skills Class ) is that someone will ask if I can cut this , slice that , open some other thing etc ...
Then invariably ask "Why do you carry a knife?"

I carry a pocket knife, but why bring a knife to a gun fight? Besides the knife (a folder with the changeable razor blade) I have carried some kind of a firearm for over 50 years. For the past 7-8 years I've carried either a Sig P938 or a Les Baer 1911, sometimes both.


Sig Sauer P938 with extended mag.


Les Baer Custom 1911 Government with extended mag.


Both are in Luger 9MM loaded with 124 grain hollow points of one of several different manufactures.

That silver one... 

Dad had one like that from the Navy. I took it out and borrowed it and left it outside on the ground in the grass. 
It was not found again until much later. The rust ruined it. I was 11... He still complains about it to this day. 
I can't look at one without wincing. Neutral

Second the notion to get your dad a replacement ... Issued ones are still to be found and in the $40-$60 dollar range , depending vintage , where I live.

Mine "followed" me home after my service in the Army...Seems like its still in service since.

I loves me Leatherman Wave.
Along with the Leatherman, I have an attachment that permits use of screwdriver bits. I use it all the time. Not as useful as the Leatherman, my old Schrade foldable knife is dear to me. Nostalgia equals practicality sometimes
I brought two small multitools on the trip I am on (on the way home at the moment). Useless. Utterly, totally useless. The scissors couldn't cut a nose hair. The blade has no right being called a knife - unless you are cutting butter. The screwdriver was screwed up after the first use.

I get intimidated just looking down the bore of that old cavalry pistol!

Of course, looking down the wrong end of a firearm can give an exaggerated sense of the size of the ammo. When I was held at 12 ga shotgun point while working at a mine site in Brazil, I could have sworn that the gun was equal to an M114 155mm Howitzer. It made me quite anxious. Shocked

I'll tell you what , with five 22 shorts in you lungs , I don't see you being very tough for long.Maybe one could go wild and strike the fore head. I lost a cousin with the damm tiny slug. He and another thought the gun was unloaded, a single shot no less. I'm not saying the 22 is not the weapon of choice . I would prefer 22 long rifle,but with one ,I am not backing down.I shoot a bit more than average and can say can that at  10 to 20 feet I can empty a clip and never leave the target. Try that with a 45.
