    After 16 years, no need to pull my weapon for defense. With one pull against a loose Pit Bull, no shots fired.

    Drawn twice, never fired.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    About ten years ago I lived in a rural area in a two-story duplex apartment. I lived upstairs, and had a nice deck with a gate at the top of the steps. I had a downstairls neighbor, a college girl, and my landlord lived across the driveway in "the big house" My beagle, Maggie, used to like to sleep on the deck in the summer. She really just liked to be outside all the time. So, it's like 2 a.m. and I wake up to her going BERSERK! She doesn't really do that, ever, so I'm alarmed. I grabbed my 870 and shoved some steel Ts into it (goose hunting loads) and head for the porch. I open the door, the dog runs in between my feet, and I look up to see a coyote clearing the gate. One shot, took his head off, big bloody mess. My downstairs neighbor didn't see the humor, but my landlord thought it was awesome. He was mobile cav in 'Nam.

    I've had to draw several times on duty. I had to fire in self defense once; five shots, four hits. I've had two other close calls. I've never drawn or fired off duty.

    In 72 years, including Army time, I have never pointed a loaded weapon at another person. I hope to continue that record.

    Does police work count ?

    Have pulled a handgun many times and have been involved in two shootings...one off-duty and one on-duty...'nuff said.

    Yes, and it wan't my idea of a good time. When someone punches you on the chin accusing you of stealing their cat (yes, a cat.) The idiot had my Kel-Tec P-11 stuffed in his face. He was arrested, and eventually convicted, on a misdemeanor charge of Assault IV. The man is an alcoholic fool, and has suffered two strokes since the altercation.) It is likely he will, sooner or later, be taking that eternal "dirt nap."

    Don't we all. Glad you didn't have to shoot.
