I also find that when I am helping someone learn to shoot it helps to start with a small caliber like a .22 and move up from there. Not to mention being cheaper. A lot of times I will move them from a .22 to a .32 or .38 for their first center fire handgun rather than jump to 9mm/45 or .357. In the few people that I have helped it seemed to be easier to get them not to start a flinch as the recoil is milder and they learned to handle and not be afraid of it.
-Commonality is great!Just a curiosity question. Do you think think it's best to own multiple handguns in the same caliber or do you feel you should have several different caliber handguns in your collection? Do you feel there's a point where you have "too many" pistols in the same caliber? I know answers will vary, I just wanted to hear some different opinions.
I'm down to 9mm, 12 gage, 556. Ammo.is just too expensive to have all the calibers I used to.
We just added 380 for the wife
So yes all handguns are one caliber now. As much as I miss 45acp I doubt I will buy any handguns in that caliber. I want a 10mm piece too but I resist.
