Living in a border state in the southwest brings circumstances some of you don't have to deal with directly. We are living in trying times and unsettling events here in Arizona. There are some in this area that think they can just do and take what they want, when they want. I've seen them first hand, come out from the cover of cactus and scrub brush into the open, even in broad daylight. Sometimes they are moving about as a single, but lately and more frequently, in groups. Seldom are they confronted or dealt with in my immediate vicinity. With the rear of our property backing up to a desert waste area, I was starting to feel more uncomfortable about them being so brazen. My wife and I are currently looking after an older family member as well as just recently taken in a younger one. I decided to buy a caliber that I haven't previously owned but wanted one my wife will feel comfortable using. It holds 16 rounds and is pretty much... point & shoot. AND!!! .................... its not bad lookin. The terrain The old.............. and the young. The threat!..
