This is the one that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.
You can carry a ton of .22 on your person, it will kill a deer, and my 15-22 has the same manual of arms as my AR-15's. I can't shoot my AR's at the pistol range, but they will let me shoot my 15-22. Also, a .22 through my .223 suppressor is about the only movie quiet shots I have ever fired.

Best part, I can give my wife a brick of .22lr and a P22 and it frees me up do shoot whatever at the range.

Not that I think we are heading there, but in a SHTF scenario your pistol and a .22lr will be very useful tools. I have cases of .223, 7.62X39 and .22lr. I can tell you which one I would want to pack around all day everyday if I had to.

I don't know anyone that can even carry a half ton of anything on their person, much less a ton.
