My husband wants me to go to the shooting range to learn how to shoot his gun. :shock: I hate guns. He is ex-Special Forces (Viet Nam era, I am so proud!). He is quite comfortable with them. I think I will do it though. I might have to protect my windows!

Too bad the spam got so bad. Some of us have been spending time at the new community for folks with a love of old houses at wavyglass.org

We have a home in SC that is empty about 9 months a year. It's set back from the road & there is a fence across the front including a locked (sometimes) gate. We have a close neighbor whose home is close to our new barn & he pays close attention to what goes on around him. He is vigilent and armed! :twisted:

As my friend and concealed-carry instructor says, "Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6!" I made sure I know how to shoot, and can handle a .9mm very well, I am proud to say. I hope and pray I should never have to use it, but it helps to actually think any scenario through so should it actually happen you are more prepared.

Although I must say I would probably do the same as Mo did! I am glad you didn't get hurt!

I haven't gone out yet to purchase one (been buying antique furniture... but it would be a good idea to buy something to protect my furniture with...), but I use my friend's .9mm Glock for practice.

I don't, however, I bet it has a bigger kick than mine. My daughters is pretty smooth. Probably why a lot of Law Enforcement use them.
