A new member seeking advice for a new gun
As the title says, I am brand new here and this is my very first posting. I have read some of what people have been posting and responding to and, I gotta say, y'all are some very helpful folk.
So, without further delay, I was hoping that some of you, or many, would be able to help me.
I am debating about whether to purchase a gun to carry, or strictly for home defense. I am a full-time peace officer and I carry a Glock 23 as my duty weapon, but I am not sure I particularly care for the .40 S & W caliber for my personal use. For a relative newbie to firarms, in general, this gun took some time for me to adjust to. So, if I do purchase a gun for home defense, I doubt that I will want to go with the G 23. That being said, I am certainly not anti-Glock.
I am still open to the idea of perhaps a smaller caliber, concealable pistol/revolver for my carry, and a larger cal. for the home. The only problem with that, however, is that I have a budget. So, ideally (or realistically, rather), I will opt for a firearm that I can easily carry, but that I can feel secure that it will put somebody/something down if my life depended upon it.
Thanks in advance. :smt039
