Was always a "must watch" with me. I think I just showed my age also.

I have had a Texas CHL for several years. I have never had to use it for personal defense. I do live in a very peaceful rural area and the pistol is legally usually in the glove box or center console. If traveling in Cities as Ft.Worth, Dallas, Houston and so forth I would have same on my bod, but I do not and will not shop in places where they I consider possible criminals shop or gather, not enter their areas after nightfall, Which is most places in those and other high crime big Texas cities. I do not nor have evey craved a gunfight or shooting showdown, I trust the Police when they are around and know the rigamorole when even lawfully killing another human but I do know how and remember the Boy Scout Motto = "Be Prepared" ! My Courts & Juries do my killing for me, somewhat delayed by Ambulance Chasing lawyers and shysters however.

No, not really.

I do get irritated very easily and I do have a pretty explosive temper. However, it takes a lot for me to really lose my cool. It was a problem in my younger days when I was still in school. After doing some growing up I've learned to control my temper. Since I've really been one to avoid confrontation for that very reason.

It certainly did change my attitude about confrontations. I had quick temper and was willing to challenge anyone as a young man BEFORE getting my CCW.

Carrying a sidearm is a sobering responsibility with the potential of life altering ramifications. That reality sunk in quick for me.

It's not at all uncommon to see that. The rounds used did what they were supposed to do. They stopped the intruder from doing what he intended to do. The fact that the shots weren't killing shots, even in a vital area, is not unusual in a .38. It's still a successful outcome, and the shooter doesn't have to regret taking a life.
