    I don't see the problem.
    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    I have various guns which would work fine for a home self defense gun for me. 12 gauge semi autos and pumps, polytech AK, Mini 14, .45 1911, 686+. I need a gun which my wife can shoot and not be intimidated by. Iíve been intrigued by the Berreta CX4 in 9mm. It takes 15 round 92 mags (CO is a 15 round limited mag state). It seems like a good shooter and is really compact. It would be my go to defense gun. I canít have a bunch of loaded guns stashed away anymore. I have a 7 year old boy, and weíd put a biometric lock on it, or get a hidden furniture spot for it. Any input on this gun?

    .38s in the 686? No mags, slides, safeties, or potential jams to deal with. Pull the trigger and it shoots. If it doesn’t, pull the trigger again. My little lady (5’2” and 125) started with .38s in my 686 and now asks for .357s when she shoots it.

    And I’m not one to say don’t buy another gun.

    My nightstand rig is a CX4 in 9mm. I used to stash a custom 12 ga 870, but the CX4 is more user friendly: The recoil of a BB gun, compact, not loud, and fun to shoot at the range. It's beer can accurate out to 100 yds and I actually hunt cottontails and also shoot gophers with it (124 gr white box Winchester 9mm NATO). 20 rounds of 124 gr. HST +p are plenty to stop any chicken coop shenanigans by the local predators. Only drawback is the trigger sucks big hairy balls out of the box but there's an easy tune that makes a huge difference.

    I've got a MRO red dot and a streamlight on it.

    She can shoot the 686 with .38ís and the 1911. I just think a carbine would be more controllable. She would have to practice loading and clearing it though. Plus I want another gun.

    ^^^ You keep that in your nightstand? Must be quite an impressive piece of furniture.

    9mm carbine is always an appealing concept to me. Have not really heard anything good about the CX4. I heard that due to the plastic stock that they are bendy.

    I've always looked at .44 mag levers longingly so I get the desire.

    I can assure you they are not bendy at all.

    I'm the least mechanically inclined person I know and I just built this AR pistol from an 80% lower with the use of my buddy's shop. Disgustingly easy. Glad I ordered the parts from PSA before all this hit. I made a few mistakes but nothing that keeps it from running super nicely for the $400 I have in it.

    Had a suppressor approved today. No batch on my M16, though my next chance appears to be in a month. Didn't think to check the other form 4s with a different dealer. It's good to know the NFA examiners are still working from home.

    But speaking of - I've been building/acquiring uppers while quarantined in anticipation of that M16. So far (top to bottom), I built a 10.5" 300 blackout faux-dissipator-thing on a Brownells proto upper, built a complete Brownell's Proto upper with one of the blem barrels, found a Colt M16A1 reissue upper, and built an M16A1 from one of those beat-to-hell Malaysian parts kits that are floating around. The proto charging handle things are sweet.

    Gonna do a couple retro A1 builds myself. Kits inbound and GM just did another run a pencil profile barrels.

    Found some authentic marked lowers that are top shelf quality in the A1 config.
