Shooting just for the fun of it usually means getting out the handguns and/or rifles chambered in 22 LR. But things changed a little bit back in July when I talked myself into getting that Ruger PC carbine that was calling to me from the rack at the LGS. I was rationalizing about how it could be a nice HD piece ( even though I already own several other things to fill that role) and various other excuses until I realized how much fun it could be and that enjoyment is a primary reason for my gun buying habits. So once I had a good excuse I went ahead and got it....... It's a lot of fun even if that fun costs a bit more than 22LR fun.
