Exercising My 2nd Admendment Rights!!!!

I'm heading to become an "Annie Oakley" type of gun-toting, biker babe... during the last month we've had a rash of home break-ins in our neighborhood. The first house the assholes cleaned them out of $20,000 of stuff (at least that's the word on the street). The second house is right across the street from mine and the third that we know of was my next door neighbors... the fuckers used his garage door opener in his vehicle and were only scared away because his truck alarm sounded as they tried to get into it! Yummy and I are thinking that ours was the fourth house intended as on Tuesday our newest boxer girl that we leave out of her crate went nuts and tried to destroy the back door. Let me just say that she's NEVER done anything like this and typically doesn't get excited unless there's something right outside the door. I discovered our back gate was unlocked as well which leads me to believe that the little pricks tried our house but good ole' Maggie scared the asses away!

To top it off... the cops along with everyone in the neighborhood think it's the 20-something wanna-be gang banger that lives across the street with his mommy and some of his fucking wanna-be members! The kid is a complete juvenile delinquent with spending time on home detention when we first moved into the house but then shortly after ran away. He ended up spending a year or so in a youth detention center. Not the best of upstanding citizens!

So all of this has led us down the path to the gun store to purchase a semi-automatic 9mm. We've looked at the Glocks and Taurus 24/7. Both seem like they would do the job of stopping the mother fuckers but we did have the chance to handle an XD 45. Seems to me that the grip on this one fits better into my little hands... Hmmm.... decisions, decisions...

Any of you gun-toting bloggers have any advice for me? And please... those of you that are far-left liberals promoting gun control... please keep the comments to yourself. I know all about gun safety and don't need a lecture on turning the other cheek. We're talking about protecting yourself and your family!

I only have limited experience with a Glock 9mm so I'm not much help there.

Have these break-ins occurred when the owners were home? If not, a guns kinda useless in this case. Sounds like you already have a good deterrent in the dog. Not tryin' to be anti-gun ownership, just sayin'...

Our dog would attempt to lick a burglar to death :-(

Hmmm
The 9mm is definately a powerful piece, the only thing I would fear is the collateral damage of a missed shot or even a pass through at close range it would go through the chest of a person and into whatever is on the other side, it will do the same with dry wall or plywood. So the possibility of it passing thru your univited guest and the wall and into something else is real.

Outside of that go get em. An unarmed house is a target. An unarmed citizen is often a statistic.

Everyone should own a gun, if everyone was armed crime would go down 50 fold virtually overnight.

Also with the Dems in charge and the ruined economy crime will go up, and guns and ammo will be much harder to buy.

Get yours and an ample ammo now.

You're good with any of those choices. How they fit you is what really counts in my opinion. How are the sights at night? Some are tritium(?) tipped so you can see what you're aiming at.

Where I live you can't get in trouble for shooting someone on your property, even if they are unarmed. As long as it can be proved they were illegally on your property :)

Ooh! A gun-toting chick! I like!

No advice for you on what to get, though...
