I had looked at one a while back just for shooting. I found it a little blocky/bulky for my liking! I ended up getting a Sig 1911 22 Cal Pistol for around $360.00 which I really like very well and it amazingly accurate. But each person has their own likes and preferences and the way the gun fits them so I am certainly not trying to discourage you. That was only my observation. You know what fits and feels the best to you. Obviously a 22 is not the best personal defense weapon! But great to target shoot and have fun with.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
