Don't laugh, I'm serious. I have a Ruger Mk III and it has two 10-round clips and it's easy to shoot. I bought a Judge for home defense but it kicks like a mule and my wife ain't crazy about guns to begin with and this would be a lot easier for her to manage if God forbid we had a home intrusion when I'm not home. The ammo is cheaper and a lot easier to find. Taurus also has a snubbie that holds 9 rounds and is concealable. I know it's a small caliber but it should run anybody off when you start slinging bullets through the air at 10 rounds a clip. I just bought my first gun when Obama got elected (joined the NRA too) and I would like to get my CCW eventually so I can carry a gun hidden in my car (not necassarily on my person) and not have to worry about different state laws. I enjoy reading all of the posts on this sight and was wondering about some of your opinions.
