  • Yes, I was leaving work where I waitress and I usually have about $300 cash on me. My .38 special was in the car. I got to the car, unlocked the door and was about to get in when I saw 2 big dudes behind me...one of them had a gun and they were coming for me. Fortunately enough I could get to mine faster. I fired a warning shot, which alerted all the people inside the building to call the cops and then held them at gunpoint until the patrol car showed up. Had they moved one step closer to me I would have unloaded my pistol without a second thought. Me having a pistol saved my life that night. Those two guys were wanted for armed robbery and murder.

  • Yes, a nerf gun. Results were I got him first. He lived to tell about it although I sleep with one eye open now.

    Other than that, no. I don't have a weapon of that kind of my own.

  • No. Ive loaded, shot, stripped and cleaned many types of guns from a 22 revolver to a M16... but Ive never shot anything but paper targets, soda cans, bales of hay, etc... A gun is just a piece of machinery, and by itself is very non threatening. It's the person holding it who makes it scary...
