    Affordable 9mm, Ruger P95, depending on where you are either 10, 15 or 17 round magazines, there's night sights available for them and they are the Chevy truck of the pistol world IMHO.

    I would go with the 9 mm if you plan on shooting it a lot. Ammo is cheap. I bought one as I love to shoot. I can buy 9mm for as little as $10 a box of 50 on sale.

    Our Governor took out a coyote with a Ruger LCP .380. Compact and reliable for varmint control and pet protection.

    Good advise on the ruger P95 9mm but take a handgun and or CC class and look into legal ways to carry in your state. Is OC legal or CC , do it by the law.
