Lots of people hunt with pistols, but I understand your question. I keep two pistols for self defense and have gone thru several in search of these final two. Others are just fun target shooting. My wife loves to shoot moving targets with her Mark III and has gotten really good at it.
Sniper: then you better be good to her because running is not going to help
....all 25 of them- except for three Carry handguns.
And as cool as it might look, carrying an AKM or VZ down our sidewalk would look schizophrenic and attract blue lights.
I didn't get any of my first couple of handguns to carry. When I got them, carrying in Ohio wasn't even legal. When it became legal, I didn't go out and get a dedicated carry gun. I got 4 or 5...had fun with all of them, then decided which to carry.
I've since upgraded more than once and don't have any of those 4 or 5 I picked up way back when. They just weren't much fun anymore. If it gets to the point I don't enjoy shooting the one I carry, I'll get rid of it too.
I have to admit I’m envious of you folks who have spouses who have similar interests, in this case, shooting sports. I have a lovely wife of 48 years, but she’s never had similar hobby interests of shooting, motorcycles, or vintage automobiles. On the other hand, I have no interest in knitting, jewelry making, or embroidery, so there’s that.
As to the OP question, I too bought a similar North American Arms tiny revolver because it looked like fun. It was, for a time, then it was sold to buy the next fun item. So why not indulge yourself, life is supposed to be fun.
At the end of the day, I think the whole point of buying/trading guns is for the fun of it. Heck, I've left my house on a Saturday morning with one gun, hit every pawn shop and LGS around, traded not less than five times, and came back home with one (sometimes two) gun that wasn't worth any more or less than the one I left with! But hey, it's something different and, most importantly, it's fun!
I enjoy watching my sons shoot it! Me, not so much, but I occasionally shoot it just the same!
My massive Colt Python and H&K P7 collections are for self defense.
I'm kinda hoping to never need a gun to defend myself against anything. That would mean some situation unraveled quickly. Rabid squirrel chewing through the roof, or those mosquitoes they have down south the size of turkeys migrated to Ohio.
That depends on your definition of fun. I know women who own guns purely for self defense. They don't consider the gun "fun" just a necessary tool in the world they live in.
