Home Defense

Tonight I did something I have been meaning to do for a while, and that was to purchase a gun.  Now, I know a lot of people think buying a gun for "home defense" is just an excuse to have a deadly weapon.  For me, it isn't.

I live alone.  All it would take to get into my apartment is a good kick on the door in the right place.  I'm strong, but no one is strong enough if they are outnumbered or looking down the barrel of a gun or at the edge of a knife.  I don't intend to find myself in one of those situations with nothing but my cock in hand.

My plan was orginally to buy a shotgun as they are easy to use and intimidating.  I am also very comfortable with their use.  But I'm also comfortable with pistols.  I know guns, and how to use them safely.  I was taught early on about such things.

Tonight I was given the opportunity to buy an H and K .45 pistol, and considering it was a good deal from an investment point of view and that it is an excellant weapon I took the offer.  It has everything a shotgun could offer and it cost me less.  And it is completely legal, of course.  I have a valid bill of sale and will be applying for my permit soon. 

And for anyone who has had the misfortune of looking down the barrel of one, know.
