Buy a Glock 19 and use whatever remaining funds for ammo, training, and spare mags. Forget about a second gun for carry, and use your Glock instead. Spend the $300 on more training, ammo, and quality gun leather. Get a Remington 870 for your shotgun needs. Easy to find barrels for either slugs or shot give you hunting flexibility.

Quote: Originally Posted by Uncontrol It's more like "I'm not fine with carrying, but if you insist can you at least keep it to one gun and stop pretending to be a fucking action hero?" people being shot to death tends to rub us the wrong way, and the fact that america has such liberal gun laws eases the proliferation of firearms to people who may not be able to lawfully require them Again, how am I affecting you by being armed?
Quote: Originally Posted by Crane's Some of these responses are laughable because people cannot get it through their heads that legal gun ownership and CCW holders aren't the problem. Why is it that the anti gun crowd constantly lumps all gun owners legal or not and then attempt to argue from that point? GT, I'm well aware of your position however I sincerely believe your viewpoint is extremely biased by your past experiences and where you've lived....

I don't believe that personal gun ownership really helps in self protection 2. even if it did, the vast majority of gun owners have much more arms than they really need to protect themselves - so if a person told me he had a single 9 mm and a 20 gauge...

Quote: Originally Posted by Teger even if we accept your premise that most crimes committed with guns use guns that are not obtained legally (and this is a stretch), you have to concede the point that if we didn't have a culture that glorified nonessential gun ownership most of those guns wouldn't exist in the first place. How is personal protection "nonessential"? And tell me, how is it glorified?
