How Many Handguns Do You Need?
A friend of mine and I were discussing how many pistols you need. Doesn't include specialized competition pistols.
His thought is:
Large revolver, 44 mag or better for hunting or defense from animals in the field
Full frame 9mm or 40 cal for personal defense in non-carry situation
Sub-compact 9 or 40 for most carry situations. Revolver or semiauto
Mini like Ruger LCP as pocket pistol carry when nothing bigger will work
I would add a good 22 plinker for fun and go with a 4in barrel and a mini for personal defense needs to stay at a total of 4
Re: How Many Handguns Do You Need?
Ballistics wise yes, but I don't think the 9's on the list for that reason. For a 40 and a 9, which ammo is more prevalent and available worldwide? Don't think its the 40...
