    Do you carry it with you for 'protection' or have it stashed somewhere safe in your house.

    Who taught you to use firearms safely? Did you take a class or did someone you know teach you?

    I've always had guns in the house, as a girl, and until recently. Yes I know how to use them. Right now I don't have one.

    I don't carry because I'm a really bad shot with hand guns, I almost blew off my own foot (a couple of times!) with a 45 and have NEVER hit a targe with one. Which frustrates me and makes me mad, because I'm a deadeye with rifles.

    My wife never owned one until we met. She took to it like a fish to water. The last 2 years she has killed triple the varmints that I have.

    nc is a conceal carry state but i prefer a 22 rifle.....

    if i am threatened i will go to a shotgun the recoil may be a bitch but i know i am gonna hit whatever is in front of me....and with a pump...well its just a no brainer now isnt it?

    i dont carry a pistol....just seems like a lot of trouble is started carrying a pistol and to be honest.....i dont care for the conversation with the police....'excuse me but i have a pistol' always gets them on edge....and i dont go a lot of places where i need one.. and from my damned experience.....everyone other person has one...and they are itching to use it...

    when i carried a pistol....it was just a lot of trouble...

    If you're good with a rifle, the only reason you're not with a handgun is fear.
    I had the same thing with my .44 magnum. It kicks like a mule and I usually hit a few inches high because I flinched as I squeezed the trigger. A friend cured me of that.
    The model 690 is a revolver and Joe took out a box of .44 mags and a box of .44 specials (a very mild round, compared to the magnums)
    Where I couldn't see him, he loaded the gun with one or more magnums, one or more specials and 2 or 3 empty cylinders.
    It took an hour and 50 or 60 rounds, but eventually the flinch was gone and at 25 feet, I could put 5 of 6 magnums through the same hole.
    I can't shoot the damned thing anymore since I broke my right arm and had a 10" plate and 10 screws installed. 10 rounds and my arm is useless for a week.
