Re: Anyone ever pull a gun at practice?
People who do crap like that are a special kind of stupid.
I own several pistols and a rifle and have always been around guns. I enjoy recreational shooting quite a bit and I take the home defense stuff pretty seriously, too. Thankfully I was raised to treat firearms with a great deal of respect. I had to prove I could safety check a gun for years before I was even allowed to shoot. Safety comes before anything else with gun ownership.
Another aspect of gun ownership that I didn't realize until a few years after owning a few of my own was respecting that many people are uncomfortable around guns. I don't subscribe to the "shove it down their throats" style of ownership. I prefer discretion. While I might not understand the fear some people have for guns, I still respect it because if our roles were reversed, I would want my feelings to be respected.
