I believe that pulling my CCW is my next to last resort...firing it is the last resort.
Exactly, look at the weapons most of us have, the ammunition we load them with, the range practice we do.
If we ever fire our weapons its probably going to be more than a trip to the hospital for the BG.
It is a deadly serious event, I've drawn my pistol twice over the years with the intent to use it and thankfully I did not have to, its presence was enough. I hope I never have to draw on a human again the rest of my life. I look for new ways to avoid trouble all the time.
