Hubby and i have discussed this at length, He has shot someone in the line of duty (USAF cop). I was always afraid of guns. Fast forward to today…I gave up part of my horse pasture for his shooting range, and now am very comfortable handling all of his firearms (well, ok most). Do not believe for one second I would hesitate to defend myself from any lowlife trying to separate my soul from my body. Yet much like a previous poster do not care to slaughter my pet chickens, am progressing here too though, actually sent 5 off last month for processing and now have them in the freezer, am returning the favor by helping my friend slaughter 30 of hers in 2 months..i am getting there!
