I am a survivor of a violent rape. The sub-human who attacked me was coming up eligible to see the parole board and he had promised me when he got out of prison, I was dead.
I have 2 kids to protect, so I took the class, got my CCW, bought my first gun and went into some extreme training courses to make sure I was prepared no matter what the situation.
I now own a .44 special (charter arms/bulldog), 2 .45s (a glock 30, and a ruger P345), a 9mm and a .25 (both astras).
I am waiting for my CCW to be issued in the new state...I was previously permitted in Colorado.
