True, but I have a wife and three daughters who are still un-armed. So, I guess I will buy a few more...

Yes, that was my point. Arming others is a force multiplier.

My 12-year-old's favorite weapon is an AR-15 with a 24" bull barrel and 6-24x scope. She can hit a 4" target every shot at 200 yds, and get off 30 rds a minute of aimed fire. I would not give good odds to anyone crossing open ground against her.

My other child prefers an M1 carbine, while I'm a fan of bolt-actions for long range precision and a Garand or FAL for busy work.

I don't plan on putting the women folk on point, but they won't be left cowering if I'm taken out.
