Single shot .22s are usually best suited for

Target practice

Very small game hunting. .22 is popular for camp/trail guns with the idea that they’re usually cheap, light, and easy to pack (as is a big brick worth if ammo) and then they make a decent option for rabbit, squirrel, etc

Sure, I get that .22 as a caliber.

But I mean, the difference in weight and size between a normal .22 and a one-shot .22 cannot be THAT big of a deal to really think that the massive disadvantage of only having ONE shot vs several.
