My son in law has a high end Kimber. Nice pistol and it shoots great, but $$$.

One thing I like about SIG's is they offer .22 kits for a lot of their pistols, which makes range ammo costs way lower while maintaining the same feel (save for the recoil.)

Estwing 28oz Framing hammer, and a roofing hatchet (of the same brand), for close quarter combat, if you happen to encounter it, you're not going to enjoy it.
Remington 870 pump action so I don't have to get get "too up close and personal" with ya. My house layout has several "choke points" that I never thought about when i bought it, but from a defensive POV, I gotcha.

Latest addition to my collection. Bought it used from a friend of mine. Looks to be cleaned well and in good shape except for some scratches where it looks like he took one of the screws out back next to the handle on the left side to disassemble it. It's a Heritage "Rough Rider" .22 caliber revolver.

I loved the saw, I carried one down range. Love the M4 too, so much that I bought a Windham Weaponry AR-15 so I could have my own, lol.

If you're that adverse to weapons in general, then don't bother posting in a thread that revolves around it.

On topic, I'm thinking of buying the S&W bodyguard for my wife, anyone have any experience with it?

I used to be into full-auto weapons pretty hardcore when i got out of the military. I owned some ak47's, a few m16's and an MP5. Now all I own is a 12 guage mossberg I trap shoot with, my .338 laupa I hunt/distance shoot with, and a Colt 1911 I got as a christmas gift from my Father in law.

Haven't owned a lot of Smith weapons, but I would recommend renting one at a range or something and trying it out. I have a S&W Sigma in .40 that I really like, but I bought it as my first pistol because it was cheap. It had a REALLY stiff trigger out of the box and I had to take it apart and remove some springs to soften it to a point where I could shoot the weapon accurately. My dad had a S&W pistol and he also said that it had an unusually stiff trigger. Anyway, I recommend going out and shooting one at a range before actually committing yourself to taking it home, so you can make sure it feels good and you can hit a target with it.

Just realized I've never uploaded a photo of my knife. This is a knife I got and used while I was in the Army. I've sharpened it to give it a nice edge and use it primarily as a gutting knife, or to cut through bones when dressing out animals now. It's a Gerber, not sure if they have "models" on knives, but it's been very reliable. The back end of the handle has a point for knocking out windows if you are trapped in a vehicle, it locks into the sheath and the steel runs all the way through the rubber grip on the handle (I believe that's called full tang) so it's very solid. It also came with legstraps so you can attach the top to a belt and run a legstrap through the bottom to keep it from bouncing around as you walk.

The house that I used to own was similar. The only two doors were the front door into the living room or the back door into the kitchen. The only way out of the living room was also into the kitchen. Once someone was in the kitchen, they were in a direct line-of-sight from my bedroom door. They would have two options once in that kitchen - bloody up my floor or leave through the back door again (which put them inside my back yard surrounded by an 8 foot privacy fence).

None, unless kitchen knives count. Guns make me uncomfortable but that might just be cause I'm Australian and I've never felt the need/desire....

Just finished assembling the parts for an AR-15 over the Thanksgiving holiday. I'll try to upload a picture of it next time I get on. Looking at getting a tactical shotgun next. Maybe one of these: Beretta 12 ga

Nice before I got into guns I thought about getting a crossbow myself but I wanted to get one of the ones that are more rifle like though, they go from like 150 bucks and up. May still get one, one of these days.

Just bought me a redi-mag for my AR-15.. Couple more months and it will be tax return time. Can't wait, don't know if I want another AR or another AK.
