If you were a minimalist or are a minilimast what gun caliber did you choose and why? I have a friend that leads a minimilast lifestyle and he chose a .45, he says it's a good middle of the road defense caliber, it's all he needs. Personally, I told him I thought he'd be better off with a .357 mag if only limiting yourself to the basic needs, but I don't even have .357 so it was kind of hypocritical for me to tell him that. So what are your opinions on living a minimalist lifestyle and being a responsible gun owner at the same time? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
