    I suspect there would be less gun ownership-at least legal gun ownership and a lot less democrats being elected

    I guess if you think owning a gun is as important as voting

    The model 10 is a fine little gun. I hadn't shot it in a while so I took it out a couple of weeks ago. It's just a fun thing to shoot. That however made me miss my old 15-4. I honestly think blind people might shoot a tight group with a 15.

    I imagine your son does well with the 10. I think that would be a perfect gun to begin with. How does your wife like the 19? My wife doesn't shoot much at all. She's doesn't like my semi-autos. I thought about maybe an SP-101 and let her shoot .38s in it, maybe phase her into .357.

    but of course. I support all constitutional rights and the right to keep and bear arms was specifically guaranteed. For years you didn't have a right to vote for Senators and you only vote for electors for President and women couldn't vote until the 1920 Presidential election. and I cannot vote for or against the vast majority of politicians who affect my life-ie all but one of the congress reps, all but two of the senators, and every federal judge


    In many ways owning weapons is more important

    my wife used to carry one of those Paxton Quigley SW custom shop 5 shot revolvers for ladies. She now prefers a Sig P238 Auto for deep carry, a Kimber Solo (though it kicks alot) and she also has a bigger Para CCW in 45. Her big issue (she has had carpal issues and took some drug-leviquin I think, that screwed up the tendons in her thumbs) with manipulating a Double action trigger pull on a revolver or a heavy slide on an auto. the bigger guns are easier to pull the slides back on then the smaller guns though the P 238 is easy.

    Her favorite HD guns are a glock 19 and a SW MP regular size in 9mm

    I think it is important to own a weapon if that will make your family and yourself safer. Im ex British army as was my dad so I have been around gun supporters all my life so Its not guns I have a problem with. The only problem I have is if people own guns just for the sake of owning guns., there should be a legit reason why you need that gun not " just because" or to make a political statement

    One of the reasons why I own guns and am a world class shooter is that there are people who think others have to justify constitutional rights through "need"

    because you want to

    because you can afford one

    because you think it looks neat hanging on your wall

    are all plenty legitimate reasons to own guns

    also legitimate is "to shoot someone who would take away my right to own a gun and oppress me because my reasons for owning one is not sufficient to meet their definition of what is a legitimate need"

    Awesome! I had no idea.


    I have a three Galco holsters and I have no complaints at all. Two of my pistols are in Galco holsters. In fact, I got the Wheelgunner for the model 10.
