Never been a gun owner. Not because I have anything against them. Just never really thought I needed one. My mind is changing. Talking to some of the guys at work about getting a hand gun strictly for home defense. Every single one of them recommended taking a basic training course wherever I buy it. Almost all legal gun owners are responsible folks that own for hunting, pleasure (target shooting) AND self defense. Think I'm gonna join the group. Pray to God I never have to use it.
