No, if there is something that I do not feel too comfortable doing, it is holding a gun. I have seen some guns, especially in museums, but I have never attempted to hold one or fire one. Perhaps it will be a good idea to try learning how to fire a gun as it may be something that I would need to protect myself in the future, but right now, I find this weapon very scary.
This has been used countless times by different people to hurt or end the life of other people. Apart from my wishes that this type of weapon has never existed. However, if it did not exist, a worse weapon may take its place instead.
Yes, I have fired a real gun in my life. It has been a few years ago. I have not fired a gun intending to hurt or kill something or someone. Instead, the times that I used my glock was at the firing range. I was shooting at tin cans and other items that were scattered at the outside range.
Most of the time, it hit nothing but the dirt which is not what I was hoping to hit. I don’t seem to have very good aim when I use my gun. As far as firing a gun at a person or animal, thankfully I have not had to do that. I haven’t even come close, but it is a good thing to practice shooting it if you have a gun for protection.
