"When you tell someone you'll fire and he says "do it or you're dead" it's really important actually to be able to do it because what follows won't be pretty - and I hope they don't deal with your wife and children before they finish you off because your heart will be utterly ripped from you as you see what happens to them before your turn comes..."

You guys really watch too much TV.

There has always been great debate over who was the best gunslinger in the old west. The one who historians really think was the best was Bat Masterson. A couple quotes from Masterson. "never let another guy get the drop on you" and "never pull a gun you don't intend to use" I hear a lot of folks here echoing that good advice.

I feel that your safety and self defense are completely up to YOU.The police will not be there to protect you when the time comes,they will be there after the fact.
How you decide to defend yourself is also completely up to you.

I have a weapon with me everywhere I am allowed to carry one.I shoot often to practice, at least two or three times a month and I have taken self defense training.

My suggestion is if you are going to carry a weapon practice with it alot and get some self defense training.(you will learn alot)

If you are unwilling to practice and get training you are most likely better off not carrying a weapon.

Part of participating in life is having fun. We have hobbies. And, there's not enough interest, time, and money for all of us to have the same hobbies. Guns have been one of my hobbies since I was very young. Yes, guns can work for purposes of self defense. At my age, in order to have the health and energy to do what I want to do, SLEEP is VERY important. And, the amount and quality of my sleep is enhanced by sleeping with a loaded 9mm Glock under my pillow. BUT, I don't recommend guns nor do I recommend aircraft aerobatics nor fast boats and cars. Everyone has to choose for themselves.
In my Dutch Star, pulling my GMC 4x4 Envoy, I cruise at 65 mph, because it's safer. My goal is to live to age 90 (10 more years).

Tell that to the family of the couple that lived just a few miles from me a few years ago. He answered the door one evening to be attacked without warning. He was beaten down by the male assailant while the female attacked the wife. Once they were both subdued they were tied and tortured for an hour or two before both of them had a tube thrust down their throat and bleach poured down it.

There really are very sick individuals out there and I only hope your "it'll never happen to me" attitude doesn't get you and your family killed.
