I had never seriously considered buying a gun, but now I’m doing it. I took the NRA Basic Handgun class yesterday, and my instructor is meeting me at a local range next Thursday for firing qualification. Then I’ll buy a gun (not sure which one yet). Here in Colorado, registration of guns is prohibited, so there will only be the background check paperwork.
Every US citizen should own guns, just like in Switzerland. Good luck finding ammo. Get yourself a common caliber.
