All around handgun???
I have been thinking about this a lot lately and thought I would put this question to the masses.
<span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">What would make the best all around, carry handgun?</span></span>
When I ask myself that question, I take into the consideration that I would want it for personal protection, snakes while fishing, kayaking or camping, and for target shooting.
That makes for a tall order. I own various handguns, but they all have their specialty, none seem to fit the bill to be used all around.
Currently I am looking for something that would be easy to carry while fishing and kayaking. My current carry gun is a Ruger 40. It's a bit much to lug around while fishing and it doesn't tuck away very well in the kayak, so most of the time it stays at home or in the truck. Besides that, I think it's a bit over kill for snakes!
What's your thoughts on this? Maybe you guys can come up with something I haven't thought of.
