      and pointed criticisms of our gun culture and am very much in favor of some serious, Federal-level gun control in this country. However, I feel compelled to point out that I am also a gun owner.

        That was 1987.

        I honestly have almost zero interest in a handgun: I have thought maybe of the Taurus Judge chambering a 410 shot shell but that's $600 and I cant shoot it at home, making it nearly worthless to me and yes a serious liability.

        I don't hunt so I never got another rifle.

        I have developed a desire to hunt some boar to put meat in a freezer: my wife make outstanding curried pork and she likes the idea. Will probably need a couple AK-47s and a Barrett to do this.

        Just kidding.... :D

          I do not keep a gun down in the city.

            Can shoot them inside city limits. I live in a virtually rural area and have a large yard and shoot my 25 cal all the time.

            It will shoot through steel thicker than car metal at 12 meters. It makes a hole/channel as big around as a pencil.

            It's a deadly weapon at close range yet at 120 yards virtually inert. Single shot, which means you need to practice and know what you;re doing AND there is far more 'sport" than having some ridiculous high-capacity clip.
