I'm going to have to come back to this thread when i have more time. I'll just throw this out there quick. I currently have a glock 17, and a 1911 ... I dont get to shoot nearly as much as I would like to though.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.
