    The final straw came a few weeks ago when we got the news that the young son of some old friends of ours was found murdered in his own home. At that point I finally made the decision: I'm going to get a pistol.
    I'm going to take a wild guess...another preacher on the forum?

    Welcome from FL's Space Coast.

    Check out the thread about Christians and another about preachers.
    See if that makes you still feel 'unseemly.'

    I too will take a wild guess and say you must be a minister too. I think you will find many other ministers, deacons, and in general Christians on this site as well. I am a minister myself, although not the pastor, but a part of our church leadership and one who considerers it a privilige and duty to protect my family and my church family should anything happen. A friend and partner (Reborn online) and I teach not only CHL but also tactics and defensive scenarios and train weekly for a "what if" all the while praying it will never happen. I either of us can be of any assistance please pm or email us. "Eternity is too Long to be Wrong"
