I hope it never comes to it but my biggest hope is if it ever happens I don't hesitate or fail. I understand taking a life is a huge burden to take on yourself, especially when its face to face. But losing my family would be so much worse I can't even dream it in my worst nightmare.The taking of anothers life is not somthing to be taken lightly. But at the same time I do not think i could live with myself if i let my family or an innocent be harmed if i could prevent it. Hope I never have to find out.

Personally I do not see much value to this article. I think there are 2 very important questions a person should ask themselves before having a fire arm for self defense. #1 is could I actually shoot someone. #2 is can I live with myself if I shoot someone. If the answer is no, then don't have a fire arm. In most self defense situations, you are going to have a split second to make the decision to shoot or not. If some sob puts me in that situation, they are going to get shot. You have no time to think that you are shooting someones son, father, etc. etc. If you interrupt someone stealing your TV from your home, you have no idea if they are armed or not. Do you want to take the chance the idiot is or not. I will not take that chance. I take a very dim view of someone who would choose to steal from me or do me harm. I personally do not care if they are someones son, father, etc. They made their choice when tried to steal or do harm to me.
