Winds, you'll find people who's opinion's you trust explicitly, because they tell you the truth, and are concerned for your well being. Cane and a few others I see you chatting with come to mind. They'd rather eat cat litter than misguide you.
Ask them. You have firearms that I've read your writings on shooting them, and you seem to enjoy every round you fired. That means you have good firearms.
Remember there are different levels of shooters and gun owners. You have the casual shooters, who want a gun that meets their needs, and they enjoy them, but they don't plan on having to slog through five hundred miles of swamp to catch a rabbit for dinner with their bare hands.
Then you have the professional/precision shooters, who get upset if they can't wipe a gnat's nose at one hundred yards with iron sights.
Don't beat yourself up over having firearms you like. Hell, I own some Hi Points, which cause people on here to have fits!
