English term or phrase:a .22 (pistol)
For pistols, I wouldn't touch anything smaller than 9mm. Go for the larger calibres and high-capacity models. Yeah, even a .22 is lethal if you hit the right spot, but, honestly, why risk it?
Would this be inches (in an american text) or something else, and is "eine .22er" a satisfying translation?
In case anyone is wondering, this is from a role playing game. An older revolutionary is giving young revolutionaries tips on what kind of equipment to chose before hitting the road.
