Default What are you afraid to shoot?

soo i went to a gun show today and i found a derringer style gun that shoots either a 45 long colt or a 410 shotgun shell. it has 2 barrels side by side and looks like a tiny shotgun. i was going to buy it but i thought about it too long and someone else picked it up. but i was thinking that's gotta be a scary gun to shoot.
soo what guns are you afraid to shoot?

I am not afraid to shoot a god damn thing. Weapon. Man. Beast. or "other" -

Not only will I shoot any weapon, but I will also shoot it at any Zombie walking SOB that endangers my family or my livelihood...

I am not sure that the term "afraid" is befitting most that post here.
What I would rather respond to would be a question regarding the "comfort" factor of any particular cartridge when being fired.
Any fool can do most anything "once". It is the health and well being of those of us remaining that is significant.

I'm not affraid to shoot any firearm I have check out and know it is in good working order. All the same I'm not quick to shoot a gun handed to me unless I've seen to owner shoot it first. I do own a old 10 ga double barrel shotgun that while not affraid to shoot I don't shoot often.

Any weapon that requires a shell I cannot physically pick up!
