I havenít read all the replies and maybe someone already mentioned this but I'll add this,
Training - take some good defensive pistol training courses; then when you are talking about this subject to your friends/family (if you choose to do so and really only CLOSE friends and family members ever need to know) you can reference the fact that you have taken the responsibility of carrying a firearm very seriously.
You have gone out of your way to acquire good training, so that if you ever have to resort to lethal force, you are hopefully prepared to the best of your ability.
I think that a lot of friends & family members look different at you when they realize that you are serious about this and have spent your hard earned money and time to get good professional training.
Just a suggestion.
Tomorrow's battle is won during today's practice.

This is excellent advice.

After several decades of never having any serious crashes, at the age of 70, my mom asked me to give her a ride.
I never, ever thought I would see that day, and it was a very nice ride.
The point here is that you act responsibly, and through your actions and attitudes you will prove over time that you're responsible. Attitudes will change.
