I support second amendment for protection, but at the same time, I am equally as strong in my opinion that ALL with firearms should be properly trained through firearms courses or programs like hunter’s safety to ensure proper storage and use of firearms. I also believe that lethal force should only be used when there is no other realistic option in preventing death or serious bodily harm.

There is not necessarily one BEST gun or caliber to carry. Get one you will carry and can shoot comfortably. A gun does no good while you are out and about if it is in your safe at home. Likewise, the gun’s power makes no difference if you cannot consistently shoot it with accuracy (at minimum, all shots within an 8”x12” target at 15 feet). A 22 caliber gun with a well placed shot to the head will kill a threat just as dead as a larger caliber weapon. With that said, the larger the energy transfer (bullet type, weight, speed, & diameter) the greater the damage, which gives you more leeway with shot placement and greater “knock-down” potential.
