Default What I think a handgun is.

A handgun is a gun leading up to a real gun. I myself like shotguns, and rifles more. But my opinion can't change your views on them.

Handguns certainly have their place! One would look pretty stupid carrying a 12 ga. Shotgun in an ankle holster for CCW. And I am sure the public would be a little upset in American if all of the law enforcement officers walked around carrying a shotgun or AR Rifles for that fact, as their only and primary weapon. It would look like a third world country. So I can not comprehend the position of a handgun not being a real gun!

I think a gun is something that is powerful.

Well, sir, there is no accounting for tastes- or opinions- but I would humbly point out that there are many handguns that are more powerful than some rifles and some shotguns.

Each firearm has a role to play- or they would not make them, and people would not buy them. I can't dove hunt with a .357 magnum, and a 12 guage is fairly useless at 300 yards, but you will be a tad clumsy trying to bring an AR into action while sitting behind the wheel of a car.

Myself? For serious social encounters, I have a preference for crew served artillery, or bits of nasty delivered by a fast moving aircraft, while I sit two mountains away with a radio and a GREAT pair of binoculars. That, sir, is POWER.
