Categorical List of Your Collection
As with everything in life, there is a learning curve, a progression, and as obvious as that seems in retrospect, it's never that clear in the present.
I thought it might be cool to start a thread that explained the categories (ie purpose) of guns you have &why, a categorical list of what item and it's need/purpose.
Home Defense Shotgun - Mossbeg 500
Home Defense Pistol - Kahr K40
Carry Pistol - Kahr PM9, LWS32, Glock 30
Target/Plinking Fun - Ruger target rifle
etc, etc, etc,
Deer Hunting - 270
Obvioulsy, since it's your collection any & all reasons/categories are valid but I think it might help others and myself to re-evaluate what's in their collection and why. As I gained more knowledge and insight, I started to re-evalaute what I have & Why. Hindsight is sooo 20/20, ins'nt it?? I realized that in many ways I was contradicting myself, (IEhaving a 380 as a HD when there's lots of better alternatives) and that forced me down a path where I had to think of things differently. The best way I can describe it is - I categorized their purposes. This process helped me identify areas that I have overlap and also other areas that I am lacking.
Example - I had a few pistols for carry but no HD weapon, ie shotgun/rifle/pistol. why is it that I just perceived the threat to appear while I was out and about? In the spirit of preparedness, why would'nt I be prepared while at home as well and is what I carry what I would want to defend my home with??
I thought it would be cool to create a categorical list of what you have and why. I thought it would be cool to keep a format like Category or Reason ---> and then the Specific Item(s) like above. let's have at it!!
PS - If this is stupid then please delete, I'm a couple beers deep.
