I agree with the above statements. The firearm you purchase is not a stapler or some other such object. It's a tool that has the ability and design to both preserve your life and to take one if need be as a last resort. Please, I don't mean to insult you- but 100% of the time I would ruther see a person get a can of wasp spray, pepper spray, or bear spray or even a stun device than a firearm they won't be able to practice and stay proficient with.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
