    You don't have a revolver or a shotgun. That's a crime in my book.

    Defending one's Loved-Ones

    Commonsense dictates protecting one's loved one, before they become cannon fodder. Depend upon no one to do the distasteful task before yourself. Such is your task, especially in the world of today, due to economics. Millions want what you have, such as you have, if you still have a home. Shortly, defending what you have, shall become coveted by many, so be prepared to repel all "comers," or you may be lulled into complacent death. Wish I could paint a pleasant picture of America today . . . cliffy

    It's 3am in Michigan and it sounds like ethanol was involved, KoB...

    I kinda agree. These teach A LOT about shooting you use with all your firearms. A good DA revolver teaches you trigger strength, concentration and feel (if you take the time to get good at it - but you can do it dry firing, too). If you get a shotty, get a pump or o/u and go bust clays. You can't believe how much fun it is and what it teaches you about gun handling. It's not very expensive, either. Eventually, you will want a 1911 to enjoy the caliber and platform. A match made in heaven...

    Revolver, shotgun, lever action, or a long range shooter. It is fun to cover all the bases but if you don't know what you are missing then you aren't really missing it.

    I think the first response was right on the ball...DSAPT9 is correct. You've got a pretty good toolbox there, but you're missing a major tool. Need a shotty, brother!

    Maverick 88/Mossberg 500/Remington 870 for the shotgun.

    A 4"-6" .357Mag revolver such as a S&W 686/Ruger GP-100

    Depends on what your goals are. If your focus is narrow, you probably have too many.....(I mean that in that having too many might slow you down trying to decide which one is suitable for the present crisis.:evil:)
    If you focus is wide, you can never have enough.:D

    You guys think trading the mauser 98 RC and 100 rounds of ammo for a Beretta 21A .22lr would be a decent trade?

    Well if you don't want one you aren't missing one, but you did ask a bunch of strangers what gun you are "missing" and referred to your guns as "tools." Then you showed us a half filled tool box with no "hammer" in it.

    How about an AR15 or a 17HMR bolt action? Or a nice Savage rifle (shoots circles around that Remington).

    Shotguns are handy for small game hunting.

    The 12 gauge shotgun is probably the most versatile and effective close-quarters weapon (0-100 yards) ever created by mankind.

    Why try to stop somebody at close range with two or three shots from a Glock when you can just shoot them 24-36 times with the same amount of effort?

    I won't even comment on the .22LR mousegun. :)

    A .22 doesn't work all that well on a squirrel that won't hold still. While a .17hmr works even better on the ones that do.

    A shotgun is one of the BEST HD tools you can have when you're half asleep an' someone's kickin' in your door.

    Beyond that - you've only one of each. Shucks, son - I've got more in ONE caliber than all of yers combined! :D

    Because you can't hunt for birds with either as well.
