I grew up in a no-gun household. I’m not sure that was intentional—we just never had them. Sure, I shot .22 rifles at summer camp and loved that, but at home, my “firearm arsenal” consisted of a Daisy Red Ryder. That was the status quo into my adult years. I never had any thought of owning guns.
Different folks prefer different styles of handguns—that much is clear. But most folks who depend on a handgun for their job (and who are free to choose what gun they carry) either choose a high-capacity, striker-fired, polymer-framed gun, or they choose a high-capacity, metal-framed DA/SA gun.
