I was against guns and maybe a bit scared of firearms until all hell started breaking loose on earth. I got one to protect my family and I. Then I gave my dad a brand new Glock 17 Gen5. I look at them as powerful weapons that can cause death in the hands of the wrong or untrained person. I also find some of them beautiful. Like some people like the look of cars or paintings. I like the look of guns. But I know ultimately I need to be well trained. I have two classes lined up this month.
