    Other than training in the military, I never spent much time around guns. They're cool, but not a fascination or hobby of mine. I will own a small pistol when I'm back in the civilian world and living on my own.

    Shooting the .50 Cal was fun.

    Good point. I had completely forgotten to mention the ricochet effect.

    With that said, I probably wouldn't want anything less than a .40 or .45, although a 9mm would work. Of course, the best home defense weapon would be a shotgun, so it's really irrelevant.
    Agreed. And yet here we are with .380s.

    I want to find a gun that I like that comes in .40.

    .45s are awesome, but other than the 1911 compact or the S&W Model 22, I don't know if I can think of any that I could carry concealed very well. And the Model 22 would probably be pushing it.

    Of course, I have several pistols of larger calibers, but none that would be good for concealed carry.

    I'm hoping to get a vintage Mosin-Nagant rifle soon:

    ^^^^I almost got one last year, but I had to buy Christmas presents instead.

    Surplus ones are $150 at Gander Mountain. Very good condition.

    I love that gun.

    I wish they'd bring back the Springfield 1903, though.

    Well that's at least half the average cost of a vintage German Mauser.
