    Spent most of my adult life not really interested in owning or using a gun. About a year ago I started considering it, and a couple months ago I bought one. It was a rifle because l convinced myself it was a good choice (instead of a handgun) for both home defense and if I got an opportunity to hunt I could do that also. Really enjoyed going to the range and shooting it, and decided that maybe I would look at getting a 9mm and that would be a better choice for home defense. I went with a full size instead of the compact because I am a big guy with big hands and I wasn’t really interested in ever conceal carrying it. Now I’m thinking, if I get more proficient and comfortable with the 9mm, maybe I would consider looking into conceal carry, which would then mean I would probably have to buy another gun! I hope I run out of excuses before I run out of my kids inheritance!

    Welcome to the addiction. Now, get a .40 and a .45!

    And a 357 Magnum, and a 44 Magnum, and a 10 mm, and a home defense shotgun, and a hunting shotgun, and a sporting clays shotgun, and a 10-22, and it never stops.

    Just look at it this way.
    It is you kids inheritance either way, so you may as well get as much use out of now as they will later. More for your money that way.

    Your kids can sell your guns to Betoff or Biden and be sorry after you are gone. Get some training and buy well known brands. Chances are you can hook your kids too.

    Your kids can inherit your gun collection. If you live long enough, they could be worth more than money.

    Why has OP not posted pics of his new mini 9mm?
