Well, for one thing they received 7 Billion dollars this year in appropriations money- that's a lot of money. Now they hafta start busting criminals- even if they have to create some first!

I agree with you completely.

I always give people the same advice, a .38 Special or 9mm at a minimum, and jacketed hollow points are a must in both.

For my personal use, I much prefer .45 APC over either the 38 or 9.

Arrow I saw a guy get shot with a .25 back in the 80's

It was in a bar in MO and there were these two guys arguing over some gal. One guy reaches in his pocket and the other guy grabs him in a bear hug. The shooter managed to get the little .25 out and shoots the other 5 times with the muzzle touching the victims stomach.

Bottom line is the guy that got shot went to the ER and was back at the bar drinking beer 2 hours later. He had on a heavy coat and a pair of Carharts. Only one of the slugs penetrated the skin and the ER pulled it out with a pair of tweezers and put a band aid on it.

Well, my friend, the cop, told me we'd just go to the same store and get the gun with his Brady check. Not knowing any better, I agreed. Well, the store obliged even though I wrote them the check myself. My friend just told me to tell anyone that asked that I had bought it from him in a private sale. I had no idea this was a "straw purchase" and it was illegal. I just thought we were "cutting red tape." So, my question is this. Do I need to DO anything? I mean, if I ever have to use this gun in self defense, I don't want to be put away for violating a gun law! What should I do? I live in Louisiana, BTW, if that has any bearing.....
Sheesh, if I bought a measly .25 for a girlfriend, I'd be trying my hardest to HIDE the fact from my shooting buddies. It's not even close to being an adequate round for self-defense.

If you ever buy a gun for YOUR girlfriend, promise us you'll get her at least a 9mm or .38 Special.

Also, did it ever don on you to pay cash? Writing personal checks isn't a good way to cover your tracks. Nor is discussing the matter on a public internet forum.
