    I thought I would update you on the decision of my younger brother of 42 to buy a gun for home self defense.
    After taking Dave around to a few gun stores he decided that guns were too much of a responsibility for him. I suspect that he didn't like the price of even the used guns I thought he would appreciate. I was wrong!
    He decided not to buy a handgun at all. He felt it was too much of an expense when I explained the all "responsibilites" of being a handgun owner. I am grateful that he made this decision under the circumstances.
    He thought that the ownership of a handgun ended when he finished the paperwork and brought the handgun home. Once I sat him down and explained the time and money involved he had second thoughts.
    When I explained making regular trips to the gun range, practicing, safe storage at home, legal ramifications of
    discharging a firearm, etc. he opted not to buy a revolver. I'm grateful he came to realize that the responsibility of owning a handgun doesn't end when he took the gun home.
    All things considered I'm glad that he DIDN'T buy a handgun. I don't think that he really had a look at the "big" picture when it comes to firearm ownership.
    I would like to thank all of you for the tips & suggestions you provided.
