First i will say i dont get on here near as much as i like, so if this is on the wrong board my apologies to the mods.
Okay here goes. Im 27 zbeen shooting about 8 years i believe in being alert and protecting me and my loved ones. I get to the range almost weekly and several times a week practice my draw as i do have my ccw.
I dont feel i can say i would shoot someone but have done and am doing my best to be prepared physically and mentallyshould i have to. Spending time at the range i do talk with folks.
Since the yearstarted i have noticed a lot of people talking bout loking forward to pulling the trigger on a threat. Phrases like "can't wait to put a body on my gun" or "they better be dead or theyll tell the cop i was smilling as i did it" seem really common.
When i express a desire that id rather the weapon scare them off then be discharged im treated as if im missing the point of having a gun and need to toughenup.
My whole point of this lengthy narrative is am i missing something in training? Should the idea of shooting someone in an act if defense excite me?how do you all feel or think on this? Honest thoughts and feelings appreciated.
