Thanks much. I recognize very clearly the awesome responsibility that comes with the right of being armed. Nothing to be taken lightly whatsoever. Hence my interest in having some level of training.
It seems that a lot of people get hung up on "what caliber", "what pistol", etc ... perhaps not really taking into account that once the trigger is pulled, you can't call the bullet back and your life (and that of your target) is irrevocably changed forever.
