    First you'll need to apply for a "buyers permit" at your local Sherriffs office, and depending where you are in NC and how "busy" they are it could be a quick as 24 hours to do your background check. I know here in Rowan I had mine the next day. Also if this was at work you'd have to check Company Policy on employee's being armed. I'd also look into a CCW Permit, and get the right weapon for you. Try a few different handguns out before you make the purchase. What works for some may NOT be good for you. Also try different types of rounds, some kick more than others. If you can't control it, it's not gonna help.
    Glad you still around to talk about it though. I know you're gonna be a bit edgy for awhile. That "paranoia" can or will work with or against ya.
    Lifes too short to take seriously, besides, you'll never make it out alive.

    Everyone eventually gets tired of being a victim, and how it feels, so eventually they then get smart and arm themselves.

    Don't forget there is a lot of training you will also need.

    In addition you need to learn to spot and avoid dangerous situations.

    And once spotted, if you cannot avoid, then you need to act quickly and decisively and pre-emptively.

    Good luck.

    Glad to hear you're OK. Getting robbed is a life changing event.
    Since you are about to become "one of us"??, try to keep current on this forum. There is a tremendous amout of information available. The discussions have made me re-evaluate much of my training & the way I evaluate a situation.
    Welcome to the family.

    Malik67 summed it up pretty good. This forum has a wealth of information and a lot of BS too ... ;)

    Try numerous firearms at a local range if at all possible. Reach out to other females on this forum.

    Glad you are okay and hope you don't have to go through that again.

    Sorry you had to experience that but glad you can see more clearly now that it's done. Research, training and an open mind are key. Be eclectic in your development and instruction. There are things that work for some but not others. There isn't one right answer but there are many. Once you feel you've got it, train some more and you'll find that you don't. Come on in.... the waters fine.

    I'm sorry that you had to go through such a traumatic experience.

    You basically have 'two' choices.

    1) Refuse to be a victim of violent crime again and be prepared to 'protect yourself'.
    2) Continue to remain helpless while depending on law enforcement to 'protect you'.

    Whatever you decide to do, just remember this;
