or maybe 2 of the pistols, since it's both feasible and advisable to carry a pair of lw, compact pistols,one of them a canned .22, or own a dozen or more guns, and be half assed "good" with them? It's not even a question for any serious gun person. Especially not if money is in short supply. TIME IS ALWAYS in short supply, regardless of how much money you have. Mere possession of stuff is meaningless. A little kid, a senile old fogey, a COMPLETELY ignorant/inept person can OWN anything. It's the ABILITY with tools and weapons that MATTERS. Keeping the numbers of guns and calibers small, the action types all the same, helps build and maintain max skill with the least wasted time.
