    Default No Longer Afraid

    I'm a converted liberal, and was scared of guns. I'm not scared any longer and I have absolute use and need for something in home protection. I'm currently deciding between several candidates.

    I'm doing a lot of research and looking around and I realize why now it's a sport and not just a bunch of yahoos ready to kill someone.

    Glad to be a part of the forum.

    Welcome from NW Iowa! As has already been suggested, you can never learn too much about handling and safety.

    Tell us more about this.
    I got a divorce and moved into an "active" neighborhood for one. But I've also received specific messages from a former mutual friend who ended up scamming my wife out of a significant amount of money. The relationship broke down and he's stated that he no longer wants to be her friend along with some alarming aggressive messages that have caused me to be worried. He also is close with my new apartment building owner and I believe that he has a key or potential copy to my apartment.

    Besides that? I also decided that I just wanted to be in control and then I wasn't going to let something happen to me if I could avoid it... which has been the result of changing my thinking over many months.

    Reasonable person, just trying to be smart.

    Should I start a new Thread about what I've been looking at and learned or should I continue that here?

    Also thank you everyone for the welcome messages!

    Great that you are taking responsibility for your safety. Like the saying goes... "When seconds count, the police are minutes away"
