Garden gun? That's a .22 short rifle. The Micro 9 is a M1911 Scaled down to 9mm...

Not quite, a Garden Gun is actually a Winchester Model 36 in 9MM rimfire shotshell - I have one, currently in the custody of my grandson, who is protecting his mother's garden/flowers.


As to the Kimber - nice firearm, I take it, you're not a 1911 type guy?

Do not fear the Enemy, for your Enemy can only take your Life. It is far better to keep the Media at bay, for they will Steal Your Honor.

Nice gun. Woulda bought one ,but went with the SIG P938. The kimber is about $100 cheaper. Bad timing on my part.

I dont care what gun Im using as long as Im hunting

I was just trying to help...talk you out of it I mean.

Besides, I read on the internet that self defense couldn't be accomplished with anything less than a forty caliber.
