Did I completely misread your reason for contemplating another sidearm?
PS: Aside from anything I’ve said, I’m certainly not implying that you need a “reason” to want anything. What fun is that?
Critical thinking done in the absence of context and relevance can only produce something useful to someone with an overactive imagination.
Truth by assertion – the cornerstone of propaganda.
