Can a .22 rifle kill someone?

Question:I was reading that many people cant be killed with a .22 from a far distance, that the bullet just goes around the skull not even getting in. Is that true?

And that you have to be really close to the subject to actually damage them. IS this true?


Where can i buy a H&K-91 in the web like if you want to see how it looks like go to link in the bottom?

A .22 will kill you dead. Bullets going around the skull are aberrations so seldom documented that they are not even worth mentioning. They are almost urban legends, except that there are documented cases where this has occurred and not just with a .22; it has to do with angle and the fact that the skull is made to protect the brain.

Frequently the .22 is the choice of professional hitmen because it is quiet and easier to ditch. The statement about "people can't be killed from a far distance with a .22" is misleading. Hit them right and they are DEAD. Too far a distance and the bullet won't reach them, so that is the only instance when that statement would be true.

No, it is not true. A .22 can kill you. It could easily hit you in the eye even from a very long distance and kill you. The blunt force trama to the head would kill you, even if the skull was not fully penetrated.

This is a true story. A few years in rural North Carolina where I grew up, some guys were out in the backyard. They had a safe backdrop because there were no houses. They started shooting a .22 at some flying crows. They knew the chances of hitting one were slim, but they were just having fun shooting.

He was killed by one of the stray .22 bullets. It hit him in the head. It was a freak thing and took a while for people to piece together. He was killed by the stray bullet from a long way away that his cousins were shooting.

Yes, you can be killed by a .22 rifle. I suppose that when a very long range shot is taken, the bullet might lose enough velocity that it wouldn't penetrate through the skull of an adult. However, there are many locations on the body would still be vulnerable (neck, chest, abdomen, etc.). I wouldn't recommend experimenting.
