    Congrats Tom. Sounds like you got introduced into handguns in a smart and safe way.

    Howdy,

    I had been packin' for over 13 years before my daughter was born so it wasn't something I had to "break" to her.

    A few years ago I was at the Mall in Little Rock with my kid and about 8 of her friends. ( Yeah, imagine going to the Mall with 9 12-13yo girls :( ) and a group of young black men in there late teens started to bother one of the 12yo girls. She was tall, about 5' 9", blonde hair, blue eyes and very pretty and looked like she was 17ish. I told them to leave her alone and to get away from us. The ringleader said he could talk to her if he wanted to and there wasn't anything that I could do about it. My 12yo daughter said "Oh yeah?! My Dad has his gun with him. It's a Glock!" The young men decided to vacate the area pretty quick without saying a word.

    I can always show my 12 year old and 10 month old (once she's older and understands) the 4 scars on my leg from a gunshot wound during a robbery attempt a few years back. It exhibits perfectly the need for us to be able to protect ourselves at any point in time as we can only control our own actions and level of preparedness.
