if i were to buy a new gun, it would be a handgun for open carry. ( i live on a private road). okay, i am 15 years old, but i do consider myself an enthusiast, at least a young one! now when i buy guns i just give the money to my parents, tell them what i want, and if they approve, i get it. they are very liberal but i have been trained properly. my dad used to teach courses to leo's for 10 years. they treat me like an adult, i.e. i have my own house, car, credit cards, guns etc.
anyway, i currently have a .22 for plinking, and the carcano, which i didn't buy it was passed down from my mom. i do have 1/3 share on a family shotgun though!
so, i think i would like a nice 9mm keltec, and then a rock river AR-15. then i'll get some more old rifles.
P.S. if you think we are rich and have a bunch of stuff, think again! we live in the middle of south missouri!
