I fail to see why people make threads like this?
I am not sure whether its attention you are after as you could get decent advise from many people in person at the gun range you intend to use "a
For defense? From who?
Are you often targeted for attack? For someone short of money you would be better off spending that money on a better education and getting a better
job therefore raising your income allowing you to move to somewhere that is safer for you and your wife.
Stupid people with guns get themselves killed in situations you dont know how to handle. You obviously have no military training or police training so
when in a situation that YOU think needs a gun often it does not.
Armed people lose the ability to reason, and go for the weapon instead of using their brain.
You are not dead now, correct? Therefore you have manged so far without a gun.
Anyone that needs to ask for advise on a gun does not need one or should not have one. Without correct training and knowledge of different situation
you are just a s dangerous as those you what to protect yourself from.
It's pretty easy to see why people make threads like this. It's so they can get advice from people that are experienced and can recommend weapons
that have been personally tested or used, and narrow down the field to do less research from scratch, and find if any weapons have specific problems
not mentioned elsewhere.
Obviously defense from an armed attacker or attackers. Do you live under a rock? Don't see all the evil in the world or the headlines every day?
It doesn't matter how educated you are or where you live, even the safest communities have outsiders that will target them for crime, or have to
travel to or through areas that are not so pleasant as the perfect world you live in.
Calling the OP stupid is not what an educated person that uses their brain would do, is it?
It's his Constitutional right to be armed and
protect himself, no matter what any other ignorant person thinks.
Armed people do not lose the ability to reason, and the majority of attacks that are thwarted by armed citizens do not require any shots to be fired.
What, do you think you're going to reason with a criminal?
Just because somebody has been lucky enough to not be a victim of crime thus far does not mean that it can't happen at any time.
Asking for advice on a gun just means you'd like other people's opinions before making an educated purchase. It's pretty ignorant to think just
because somebody asks about something, or want's to discuss it that they're too dumb to have one or something like that.
I agree that any armed citizen should be trained, but it in no way makes them more dangerous that a criminal!! Not even comparable!! THE OP'S FIRST
SENTENCE SAYS HE'S RECEIVING TRAINING!!
So, everybody has to be a trained policeman or be Rambo just to excersize their Constitutionally guaranteed right to defend themself?
I must say that It really seems like you're an anti-gunner just here to spew hatred and ignorance, and troll for an argument. I apologize if I am
wrong, but judging by your post, it's pretty obvious. The OP is asking for advice and help, not ignorance.
