    LOL, my pastor & I were having a gun-related, church defense discussion recently & he (lightheartedly) asked if I would take a bullet for him? I said "Absolutely NOT, because that was clearly...a deacon's job. My job was to take the fight to the bad guy!". He agreed!

    You know you could have avoided everyone's apprehension if you would have stated in the OP that this was NOT a carry gun. I have severe reservations about pulling out my loaded carry gun in public as well. Even if done safely. No biggie but just a comment.
    Equality does not exist in the real world - it is a fiction to help the self esteem of those people who consistently fail to succeed.

    Was this perhaps the Church of St. Gabriel Possenti? Maybe it should be.

    If only it were a service caliber I would condone it... (not to say a 380 is bad, I just do not trust them)

    I'm glad your church is so understanding and accepting of it. There are a few people at my church who would have a freakout session if I took out an unloaded gun like that and started showing it to others in a public space. Fortunately, most of the people at my church would be fine with it, so I could do something like that in a class room or something.
