**** it, let's do this. Use this thread to talk about what you think is best, worst, and everything in between. Rifle, pistol, rimfire, grenade, harpoon, etc. Go for it.

i'll move this here so i don't continue to derail the p320 thread:

i tried out a G22 (.40) today and it felt like i was shooting a 9mm. i really feel like a G31 is in my near(ish, maybe) future. if it's good enough for the virginia state police...lol

i really want to get ma dukes squared away first. we were talking about that yesterday and she actually really wants a pistol and her concealed carry. this surprised me because she's always been against guns in the house, so i'm pleased with her turn of heart and want to get her straightened out. i'm gonna take her this week or next to try on guns. she's a tiny thing, no clue how i came out of her. i'm thinking a G26 might do her fine.

not entirely sure how i feel about a shotgun for home protection. my dad swears by it and i've always wanted one just because they destroy ****, so why not have it laying around just in case.

it really depends on the construction of your home, and how close any neighbors are. 12 gauge slugs and buckshot can penetrate a lot of sheetrock.

50 calibur for both pistols and rifles.

i can't remember what slug he advised using. how close do you think i'd have to be to start worrying about fragments flying into my neighbors house?

your opinion is wrong.

5.56 for rifles. i imagine i'd be choosing between a .40 and .357 sig for pistols.

5.56 is for toys, and .40 is just for people who can't choose between 9 or .45.

lol uh huuuhh. have you ever shot a .50? i imagine that would not be fun to shoot from a pistol.

It depends on what you find fun. I mean come on .50 is just too cool.

150 yards? you have to account for all sorts of potential angles of fire and see what is behind your potential target.

See how you do on a range but a stock would be a good choice if you're going to use slug in your home.

holy ****. probably no worse than a stray bullet, but not what i was expecting from tiny, spreading projectiles.

this.

unless it was a different model, there is actually a tactical stock (pistol grip plus stock) that i want for this shotgun. the price difference was about $200 or so. i may go ahead and put the stock back on. i was just dicking around yesterday with a box of 7 shot.
