To me it is all about being comfortable and able to handle the gun, so I don't think a .22 is a bad choice for beginners. Also, I not going to be aiming but blasting! If someone tries to invade my home uninvited with 12 gauge pistol grip mossberg.

There are a lot of misconceptions about Texas gun laws. The open carry for handguns (must have concealed license) which I'm against, just passed in Texas. While other states has had this for years. Texas also has some the most stringent requirements (good thing IMO) for concealed handgun license. I really don't think there is need for the new open carry law, especially on college campuses it really is just a political statement to appease some. IMO some of these open carry guys do more harm than good, and are not helping to promote safe gun laws.

I don't have guns but still interested. What is your opinion on best handgun for home protection?

Bill Burr has a stand up routine about it and he says he has a 22, what might be too small, but at least he can hear after pulling the trigger in a confined place like a room...

especially on college campuses

When it comes to gun laws I don't understand this. Why is it safe to have guns at some locations but not others?
If it's safe for somebody to be carrying a gun at my place of work why is not safe for somebody to be carrying a gun at a judge's or a politician's place of work?

I like guns, but owning a weapon for self protection is only dangerous.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

I do. Wasn't raised around them (except for air guns) but got into firearms back in 2007. I'm fortunate that I live in the country and can shoot on my own land. I've got a little range at the back of the property where I've hung some
steel plates that'll stop anything short of a 50 cal. Shooting steel is so much more fun than paper.

I wouldn't call myself a gun nut but I've got a pretty decent collection. I've streamlined it in recent years to where, instead of having a large variety of guns, I have several of just a few types. I like redundancy and having spares. Makes buying accessories easier. About the only gun I don't have that I would like is an M1 Garand, the US military's WW2 battle rifle. That's a man's gun right there.

I've got several each of 22s, 9mm pistols, AR15s and AKMs. I used to be into collecting old guns and have several military surplus bolt action rifles from WW1 to WW2 era. My collection is also pretty diverse geographically. In addition to the US, I have guns from Finland, Russia, Czechoslovakia (before they became Czech Republic), China, Hungary, Serbia, and Switzerland.

I have a carry permit and unless I'm in court or on a plane, there's a gun either on me or within arm's reach pretty much all the time. Usually a Glock 19 (best handgun in the world).

I try not to get too political when it comes to firearms and I don't throw it in people's faces. To me it's about personal freedom and being able to protect my family. And of course it's a fun hobby. In this country gun control has become a non-issue politically.

I would love to hear from others members, especially those in countries outside the US. Are the laws very restrictive? What are availability and prices like?

i like many kinds of well designed machines, and many guns to me are exactly that

I had 14 Ruger 10/22s. I inherited 9 of them. They are little Honda cars, tons of customization. I don't shoot them much, but I always enjoy buying the latest Call Of Duty looking stocks for them.
