Glock 21 (.45) owner here. After 3 break in attempts in 3 days I'm glad I own one. Here in a few months I'll be buying a Mosin and a cheap .22 rifle to shoot off for fun.


Forget buying a new gun, you need to find somewhere else to live. Seriously where the hell do you live?

The company I work for requires all employees to undergo defensive training and carry at least two guns (main and back up) at all times.

So I carry a Springfield XD 40 and a Sig P238.

And all I do is personel and supply management. Laughing


Either you work in Iraq, a police department, or I want to work with you. :)


The company I work for provides security for executive get-togethers and personal security details when requested. Most of our employees are former police and military. Those of us who aren't more or less handle the scheduling, sales, interviews, and company purchases. I help with all of that but I guess you could say my primary job is to handle company purchases as an on staff FFL holder.

Their rule is all employees, regardless of position, must know how to handle firearms, must undergo PT, and must take self defense training. The idea is that if they can't keep their own employees safe, how can clients ever expect to be?

That said, almost all of the jobs they do are fairly cushy. Most executive level events only hire security for legal reasons. But it's good paying work for someone trained in that field of work and who has a family -- minimal risk, pays better than the local PD will.

They have some scuff ups sometime but it's usually just someone who drinks too much. Arguably we are the most experienced company in the world when it comes to handling drunken executives and keeping it out of the paper. Laughing

In fact the one time that I actually had to draw my gun (along with 15 other people) was when a drunk crashed through our own company gate.

That guy was lucky we don't hire hotheads.

Before you go hunting with handgun, check the local hunting regulations. Here is an example of handgun deer hunting regulations in my state:

"Handguns for deer hunting: Handguns,
other than muzzle loading, must have a
barrel at least 4 inches long and must fire
a bullet of .243-inch diameter or larger. The
handgun cartridge case, without the bullet,
must be at least 1.16 inches long. Full metaljacketed
bullets are not permitted.
Handguns are not permitted on any military
areas.
Some types of handgun cartridges legal
for deer hunting include .357 Magnum, .41
Magnum, .44 Magnum, .44 Special, .45 Colt,
.45 Long Colt, .45 Winchester Magnum, .35
Remington and .357 Herrett.

Some illegal handgun cartridges for deer hunting are .38
Special, .38 Smith and Wesson, .38 Colt New
Police, .38/200, .38 Long Colt, .38 Super, .38
ACP, .38 Colt Auto, .45 ACP, .45 Automatic
and .45 Auto Rim.

All .25/.20, .32/.20 and .30
carbine ammunition is prohibited."

I live in Stockton in the USA and I need a good compact gun for home defense. It needs a strong enough caliber to ensure that the target stays down after one or another shot. Less threat to me and a dead man can't make lawsuit against me because he got injured on my property.

If someone attacks you in America and you got a gun and you are alone it is the best to shoot to kill. Because if he lives, he'll try to sue you. So save yourself the grief and kill.

I was thinking about getting a 10mm, is that a good caliber, if so what would be a good pistol?

Personally, I prefer a .40 cal s&w round. Better knockdown power than a 9mm, but not as clunky as a 45. I use a Tarus PT40 for my concealed carry, and for my bedside gun, a Springfield XDM 40 cal. Both have solid mag capacity and great reliabilityCool

I use a Springfield XD-40 for everything except changing the channel on the TV (I don't have one).

16000 rounds, 90 percent of them cast reloads, half of that semi-wadcutters and I don't polish my brass either...

total of 4 jams.

I have managed to break this gun several times, and once ran it over with a truck during a shooting course too. It's been airborn numerous times (being thrown at targets and that was training not rage)

Springfield has a lifetime warranty and it never cost me a dime to fix it. Finally broke the firing pin but they sent a new one no questions asked.

Get a shotgun, pump action. The sound of a shot gun being chambered is among one of the most terrifying sounds known to man. Also hard to miss with.

You can get all kinds of cool rounds for them from beanbags to rubber, sabot, slug, flechette, shot or you can be a real **** and pack your own shells with rock salt. That will keel those pesky hoodlums off your lawn. Remember to keep a box of knives or throw away weapons handy to toss next to the corpse if you go for the lethal solution.

The sound of a shotgun is absolutely terrifying, but for someone who knows guns that means that it doesn't have a round chambered yet, and the noise will tell you where the person is located at. In reality, just keeping a round chambered so you don't have to make the click-click noise is better.

In addition.. firearm-mounted flashlights..yeah. While it may keep one of your hands free (to hold the gun or to open doors or whatever) people will fire at the light. You hold a gun in front of you, and the light is on the gun..
