Regardless of the mag release,hitting the narrow mag well of any single stack 22lr is problematic. IT is not like emerg reloading a G19. To each his own, but a 4" 38sp is easy to shoot, easy to reload & at least 5x more effective on target than any 22lr, headshots aside, & we all know how good everyone is making headshots right? Geeze, I have watched MAster class IDPA shooters miss a headshot on a target not moving, while they were standing still but trying to hurry. Marginally skilled shooters have little to no chance in making the same shot under even more diff conditions. A dose of reality folks, go try this stuff for yourself.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
