Need help!!
 
I just purchased an M&P Shield 40 Cal but I also own the Ruger LC9 .. Should I sell one and buy something else??

1. An individual cannot have too many firearms.
2. Everyone should have at least one 1911.
3. Get as much ammo as you can find for both.

So a 1911 would be good for home defense?

No and yes.

Have you tried plinking with a 6" barrel Ruger GP-100 .357/.38 revolver? It is heavenly. You have your carry pieces; get something for the range.


After the range gun, you might consider something in Black Powder; i really have enjoyed my replica of a Remington 1858 cap-n-ball pistol. http://www.cabelas.com/product/Shooting/Black-Powder/Pistols-Revolvers%7C/pc/104792580/c/104701680/sc/104503680/Pietta-Model-1858-New-Army-44-Caliber-Revolver/731695.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Fshoot ing-black-powder-pistols-revolvers%2F_%2FN-1100201%2FNs-CATEGORY_SEQ_104503680%3FWTz_l%3DDirectLoad%253Bca t104792580%253Bcat104701680&WTz_l=DirectLoad%3Bcat 104792580%3Bcat104701680%3Bcat104503680

how do we know what you should do with your money, and things? we are not the government.

that being said, you have 2 carry pistols, i bet neither are really fun to shoot a lot for practice.

shoot both, and pick your favorite, then trade the other towards something that is alot of fun to shoot. like a full size pistol. either semi, or revolver. or even a rifle.

or keep both and buy a new gun anyway!!!!<<<< thats my pick

Only sell one or the other if you are going to commonize your ammunition.

Even now, it's better to have firearms that use a common ammunition platform than having to stock multiple calibers, IMHO.

If it were me, I'd sell the P95, if you still own it.

There's a lot of good advice being given. Unless you need to sell one for financial reasons, I'd keep both.

I just want to make sure I'm covered in all aspects. Most days I wear slacks with vneck untucked shirts. The LC9 conceals great but I dnt know how well the shield will conceal. It feels like the shield is a better gun. Thanks for the insight guys. All useful information is much appreciated.

Everyone should own at least one Colt and one 1911. Buy a Colt 1911 and kill two birds with one stone(or pistol). Just another mans opinion, either way have fun. Enjoy!!

I am kinda biased to the 1911. I have several for different purposes. And yes, they are good for home defense.
