None of your business.
@VintageNaginta Police are always 15+min away, so unless your house is rigged with beds that tilt up and slide everyone down tubes into a sealed secure panicroom you had better have something that responds quickly. Even a cheap revolver is fine as long as it's proven reliable at the range (some cheapo guns have timing issues on cylinder, some .380 autos are jam--o-matics etc. so test your guns thoroughly)
@Chaddeus_Rex There will always be mental defectives in any society. Even small tribes have those "certain individuals" the tribe members collectively keep an eye on. Cultivating a society that respects the rights and the possibility of anyone being armed at all times is akin to the "polite barbarian" idea.
@Chaddeus_Rex The conservation department often runs public gun ranges and you would be surprised how often they take notes on people that go to said public gun ranges. License plate numbers, what guns you pull out and shoot, how many rounds fired, etc. They get really bad around deer season but seem to do this intel-gathering year round.
Luckily I have private property with a natural depression going into a hill as a backstop that gives me a safe private gun range I made myself. It handles all my needs besides long-range rifle practice (beyond 250yd) and most of what you need to train on takes place under that range anyway.
@Chaddeus_Rex People must be deliberately mis-reading my posts at this point. Plain english simple example: nut bar shoots people. Take guns away from everyone using public safety as smokescreen to disarm populace like Europe and China. Easier to control. If total gun ban was in place same nut bar would have used gasoline or a knife to kill people all the same. People screech about their safety and start banning knives and self-defense like in UK, easy to forsee the results of that policy.
This is just one example.
