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.
