Killing a human is not a game.
Yes, I am a newbie. Yes, I have had my CCW for two years but only started carrying regularly for a month. I bought P239 last week and took it to the range today. It's a .357. My groupings were pretty decent. However, the power of the gun and the "accuracy" of my head and chest shots brought a real unease in my soul. I remember our CCW classes (four classes, four hours each). The first six hours were basically spent on talking us out of getting our carry permit. "You kill a human and your life as you know it is over forever." said the instructor. I know there is a lot of bantering on slamming the "BG's" but popping those rounds in the target's torso was real unsettling. Yes, I know and agree with all the arguments of my family over him. I agree and I am not some "touchy feely" metro sexual. But, man, what a serious responsibility we have in carrying a weapon. It's really not a game and the BG doesn't get up after we run out of ammo.
Ok, sermon's over. Any comments?
