The 10mm is a great round but you know you have to pay for them, right
Yeah, the 10's are spendy to shoot but I got a buddy with all the stuff to reload so it wouldn't be too bad in the long run I guess.
I have a Model 59 Smith and Wesson. It was my dad's gun back when he was a Deputy a million years ago. I've only put a few rounds through it. Been more of a rifle guy to this point in my life, never had a lot of use for pistols. Then a guy I met a few weeks ago was telling me a story about how some guys tried to rob him at a rest stop. The realized he was older and in tough shape, and they saw the "Disabled Vet" license plate. What they didn't know is he was a retired Navy Seal. They didn't fare so well and then when they got a second wind, they didn't like his 45 he was carrying either. Bottom line, I have 2 small kids and a wife and we do a lot of traveling to visit family or go shoot archery tournaments or going hunting and I feel I should do whatever I can to protect them.
I also have an Ruger 357 revolver that my dad used to hunt. It has 3 different barrel lengths you can put on. It has the long one on right now "I think 6 inch" but it has a 4" and either a 2 or 3" I could put on it too. But for carrying, I kind of prefer to have a bottom feeder, and that is strictly personal preference.
