Unless if you like other people playing with your shit when you aren't around this is a bit of a deterrent. That and its a pain to get them out to go to the range on the weekend so I just avoided buying anything for the last 6 years. Luckily my parent's have warmed up to the idea of allowing me to keep a gun at their house (they already watch both my cars. Thats them in THEIR garage in my sig) although the last time I was home they told me too late and I wasn't able to buy anything with MD's 7 day wait.
I have a long, LONG list of guns I plan to buy, most of them are purely for fun and dont serve much of a functional purpose.
A .22 is definitely the perfect gun for a beginner to start out with. I've heard good things about the walthers
