Yes it might have. But reading your posts let me suggest the next steps in your firearms education you might want to consider could most properly include some serious training to help you understand (1) how to use good judgment assessing situations; (2) how to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations; and (3) how to recognize a genuine threat.

Being fixated on having a gun won't help you. On the other hand, Vanya, Buzzcook and Plumbnut have offered some good advice you could profitably pay attention to.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
