He wants to start shooting a little. Prolly once-a-month it sounds like. So, cost of ammo is not a huge factor. Now he "lives back in the woods you see. The woman, the kids, the dogs and..."him. So, he does not want a 38 or 9mm. He needs a gun that can take a big pig or ferrel dogs down. The more I think about it though, the .45 is hard to beat. It is America's cartridge. He likes the Glocks for ease of parts and maintenance. He is a do-it-yourselfer type. Again, a country boy can survive. He has a shotgun (12ga) and rifle (30-06).
