Should I get a shotgun or a handgun?
I currently own a SIG P229 and am thinking of purchasing another gun. I'm completely split on which one to get, so I'm hoping one of you can persuade me one way or another.
The two guns that I am considering is a Rock Island Armory Tactical 1911 vs a Mossberg 500 / Remington 870 (haven't decided on which of the two to get). I'll probably get one of these in August when I have more money.
The 1911 would likely be a home defense / occasional CCW / range gun (not really thinking of any competitions any time soon). The shotgun would be for home defense and maybe the occasional skeet / trap shooting with my cousin who is more into it.
I really want a 1911, but at the same time I feel I should get a long gun before purchasing another handgun (especially since the P229 is already a fine handgun).
