I'm in your boat too

I had never fired a gun and grew up afraid of them (i was even afraid of a loaded clip!-lol) until I attended a 3 day hand gun course.

I can't believe how unfounded my fears were.

I'm not an expert now, but a Glock 19 handgun doesn't take an expert to use. A very valuable tool.

And to all the anti-gunners: You are self evidently correct that operating power tools without training can be hazardous. Be it a planer saw, a car, or a glock 19.

Get a dog and get to a handgun course. Then practice once a quarter.
The glock 19 seems idiot proof.
