    Mike here

    Mike here. I have a different philosophy on defensive carry. No gun is good as a defensive gun, unless you have it with you. Therefore, all of my guns are defensive carry guns. None of them are suitable for every situation. ;) All of them have a purpose. ;)



    Love driving in my Jeep

    The best carry gun in the world is worthless, if it's home in a safe.

    Sweet collection. Ever since those shorty lever actions came out I've wanted one. At 600 a pop they aren't practical for me not to mention the difficulty of holstering said pistol. I like your answer to the shotgun question three out of 4 times.

    It's always changing. That photo is about a year old. I have replaced a few and added a few. No longer have the Bushmaster or Benelli. Picked up a second GP100 to replace the longer barreled version. Picked up a couple of FN A1, in .308, and another Winchester 94. Got rid of the Marlin 30-30. Never liked the curved grip. Also picked up a Ruger bull barrel 10/22 and a couple of Bond Arms derringers. Oh! And got a Springfield M1A National Match in stainless.

    Guess I need to update the photo.

    Rule of thumb: Can't have too many guns or too much ammo.
