    I was wondering if anyone could give a first time gun owner some advice. My wife and I were planning on getting a Glock 19 or 17 for home defense. We decided on one of these because they are reliable and my wife likes to shoot them (low recoil, light trigger pull). We are both new to guns. I plan on practicing a lot but I'm not sure how much I can get my wife to go to the range. Lately I've been wondering if we would be more accurate in a stressful situation with a pcc, and with reduced recoil we might be able to go up to .40 S&W and still have it be comfortable for her. She is worried about reduced maneuverability with a pcc.

    I've been looking into Kel-Tec Sub-2000 and Hi-Point. I don't think we can afford a Storm and still get a pistol for concealed carry (I'm thinking a G23 or G27 in this scenario). Could I trust our lives to a pcc or should I just stick to the Glock? Thanks.

    I have the CX4 Storm and Cougar in .45ACP. Awesome combo and scary accurate. Did not think the carbine would have as much recoil though. A few magazines through it will leave a pretty attractive bruise. Bought both as a package. As each came with 2 mags that gives me a total of 4 mags for either weapon. May invest in the 9mm version and get a px4 to go with it.

    I would not hesitate at all relying on my Hi-Point for self defense. With a same caliber Glock, it would be an awesome combo IMHO. The High-Point recoils very lightly and is very controllable.

    +1 for a Hi-Point home defense carbine.

    I love my camp 9. It's my second 1 after the first found a new home. They are out of production, but they are a great little rifle.

    good luck.

    I've been told that when shooting a .38 spl. from a carbine (.357/ .38 spl. lever rifle) that the .38 would actually lose velocity due to the (20 in.) long barrel. Can anyone confirm this? If true wouldn't that make that make the .38 spl. worthless for defense purposes fired from the rife?

    I know the thread is about carbines, but you and your wife might want to consider a pump action or semi-auto 20 ga. shotgun.
