    Surprised there isnt more votes for the LCP honestly.

    If I get a .22, it will be the Sig most likely. I just like the looks of it a lot better then the 10/22's. My buddy has one that I have shot and ehhh, if im going to have a .22 rifle, I at least want it to look good ;)

    What is the difference between a 7.62X39, 5.56, and .308 ? I am not very familiar with rifle rounds.

    I voted for the furniture, but in reality, I would pay down debt or start an emergency fund.

    Once those are taken care of, I would go with the LCP, but don't think your fiance is going to shoot it 'easier'. It is definitely not a fun gun to shoot.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    May be banned by Obama?
    All things being even. Buy the Saiga 12

    You can always pick up a .22 later.

    A 22 of some kind and several bricks of ammo should be in everybody's inventory. Mine is a 5" Kimber 22 conversion kit for my carry 45. I can carry it in a Browning flashlight belt holster for the survival stewpot or signalling when in the woods. If you already have a shotty 12, look into a 308 for reaching out to medium ranges or a 338 for serious kick. (might have to buy some end tables in between guns though)

    Yea a .22 would be great to have fun sure. This decision is to tough! Maybe I should just sell my P2000sk and get the Saiga and either the 220 or LCP

    My fiance' loves to shoot my 10/22. It's too easy and cheap to practice with, reliable, +1 on the survival points brought up earlier. Someone commented about it's looks; I am under the impression that this is one of the most common semi .22 rifles out there and therefore, aftermarket/custom parts are readily available and cheap to dress it up (custom stocks etc..).

    Since the 10/22 wasn't on there, my protest vote was for the furniture :)

    I'm sure you'll enjoy whatever you decide. I recently asked here whether I should keep my Taurus or get a Heritage. Folks here convinced me that the right gun wasn't one of the options I was seeking advice on. My point is that I'm not trying to be a wise guy or any disrespect by voting for a gun that wasn't on your list.

    If you area going to buy a Sig p220 buy the .22 conversion for it so you can still have the .45 part of it as well. No since in spending that kind of cash for just a .22

    I dunno. I think I may just say screw it and buy a new bedroom set and dinner table I can't make up my mind really and find a happy medium. Plus I would be using the other every day

    I already have a shotgun. I'm thinking my next gun will be either a 9 mm. or a 45 caliber pistol. A .22 would be nice for all the varmints.
