I love to shoot but the amo is SO expensive.
Too bad we humans have a need for weapons but we humans
do have a need for weapons.
So I want a nice handgun.

Missiles that can be programed and fired miles away from where you're sitting. You wouldn't even know what hit you.
Guns, come on, unless it's a machine gun and then if up against a tank launcher that could take the whole side of your house out, or even a small missile as stated before, you and your house would be gone before you even know what hit you.
Like the suit of armour, any hand held gun is now obsolete in comparison to the stuff any army can get a hold of.
That's just the human army. If we ever have to confront a nonhuman army they may have a single beam that could fry your house / neighborhood /city to a crisp before you reached "your gun".
Guns are no longer the "king of weapons" unless you're talking protecting yourself against another single person invading your home. But, not a army, a government gone mad or worse.
I beg to differ. If said super weapons are deployed, I guess we are saving them for the alien invasion fore they certainly haven't been utilized in our previous occupations.
The concept that some folks APPARENTLY do not understand is wars / occupations require foot solders. The guys with the puny guns that go up against the other guys with the puny guns. You present a very naive concept of urban warfare.
