Response to BainsBane (Reply #43)

58. I have bought many handguns with no intention of ever killing anything with them. ...

I use them to punch holes in paper at ranges from 15 to 150 feet. It's called target shooting.

I have also bought handguns for home defense and legal carry. Once again I didn't buy them to kill another person but to hopefully to stop a serious attack by a home invader or a street thug if absolutely necessary. There is an excellent chance that if I shoot such an attacker in the center body mass, he will stop trying to put me in the hospital or six feet under but will survive to stand trial.

I have been shooting handguns on a regular basis for over 40 years, I have never hunted game nor do I have any interest in doing so in the near future.

It's obvious that you do not have any handgun target shooters in your circle of friends. That may be because of where you live. You do know some hunters and have no problem with their owning firearms. The weapons they use are often far more powerful and deadly than the handguns I use.
