Charger vs. 10/22 Home Defense

This is not a discussion of .22 lr for home defense.
I have other options too and use them, just want to add a .22lr in the mix.

Choice is between a 10/22 tactical length and the Charger.

How much velocity and power lost by 10" vs. 16" barrels?

Is the action of the Charger the same as the 10/22...as reliable?

It is the same action, same magazines as the 10/22, so just as reliable.

I don't have a chrony, so I can't give an answer to velocity differences.

This is what mine looks like; a little rusty barb wire on an Archangel stock, ar carry handle and front sight, AFG, and a red laser.

Went with the Charger for my new 'House-Gun'. I feel very confident with this setup.

Ignore the naysayers regarding 22LR for self-defense. They obviously have never shot 1/2" plywood with the CCI "Velocitor" ammo at close range.
