Help me chose a self/home defence gun
First of all; I would like to greet everyone here.
I live around Chicago, IL. I have a wife and 3 kids. Although the area I am in is pretty safe, but I recently started to hear some theft stories here and there... I even heard about some home intrusion in the neighborhood.....
so, I started considering buying a gun in order to defend my family and myself in case if i have to.
I do not have a gun at this time, but I do have medium experience in guns (I am a veteran: was an Engineer at the airforce and received basic military training multiple times).
previously (long time ago), I owned a 9mm Browning, a .38 special S&W, and a 9mm Beretta ().
and now i am trying to get back and get one gun which I will use for defense, and for training/practice as well.
here is my criteria (not ordered):
1. preferably brand new
2. less than $500
3. preferably, US Made
4. preferably, stainless steel completely (i don't like the 2-tone ones)
5. semi-auto (not big fan of revolvers, but open to changing my mind)
6. preferably, capacity of 13+ rounds
7. reliable, and safe to store (remember: i have kids at home)
9. preferably, 9mm
is that difficult to find?
