    Yes, I died several years ago. I must be a Democrat since I am still voting.

    (Totally stupid 4th answer, insert sarcastic humor)

    I remember the first time I was drawn on.
    Back in the summer of Ď77.
    Was with some girls we had just met and they wanted to show us around their old school.
    Well, being a hormone led teen, we followed them and started walking in the parking lot while the girls pointed out different things. Suddenly two LEOís pull up and exit their vehicle.
    One immediately draws his pistol and points it at me, warning me to place my hands over my head and donít move.
    In the officers defense, I had a black Kodak 110 camera hanging from a strap around my wrist.
    Hard to distinguish in the dark.
    Needless to say, things got straightened out and we were sent on our merry way with a story to tell.
    But Iíll never forget how big that barrel looked.

    Pistols only? How about rifles, shotguns, artillery fire, etc?

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    Doesn't count. You were only mostly dead.

    I was thinner then - I'd probably get hit now.
    So who is this Will that everybody fires at, what did he do, and how come he's not dead yet??

    Yep, a .45 in the face in high school. My first carry firearm was a .45 for that reason--I remember how cavernous that bore was at nose length. I'm still here. Don't know about the other guy.

    How come the poll doesn't allow me to check more than one response?

    Yes, drawn on by a police officer. It was 1974, and I was doing a college senior year paid internship with our local police department. Responding to a burglary call on third shift, the officer I was riding with had me follow him into the auto repair shop where there was reportedly a burglary in process. He told me to remain in the dark front office while he investigated. A second officer arrived on the scene, and not knowing the other officer had a ride-a-long, he drew down on me thinking I was a burglar. The first officer cleared the building and returned to find me hands in the air preparing to be cuffed. The first officer quickly cleared the confusion and received a quick dressing down from the second officer for not letting him know I was present. I'm not sure who was more shaken, me or the officer who could have mistakenly shot me.
