Alright. Here's a quick rundown of how I came to own a gun.

5:30am May 19th, I was stabbed eleven times. Eight in my shoulder, One in my lower back (near my kidney), One in my chest, and one in my forearm. Luckily none of the stabs hit anything vital.

I got out my front door, and headed for my neighbor's house to call for help (yelling the whole way). This guy tried to stop me, and I knocked him to the ground. I jumped on him and pinned his wrists by the sides of his head until police arrived guns drawn.

Caught at the scene of the crime covered in my blood, with his knife dropped on my front porch. He's in prison facing attempted murder and burglary charges.

I now own a Smith & Wesson Model 10 .38 Special. Yesterday was the first time I took it to a range and tested it out. I had the ATI Pistol Range recommended to me, good people and 5 minutes from my house. I found some great step by step instruction for cleaning here, which made it easy for me to handle that yesterday after getting home.

I'm glad to have come across this board.

I think anybody that has been through what you faced would arm themselves to avoid a second similar incident.

I used to live in Texas. Del Rio, I loved it there. Moved north with my family at 9.

I just kinda reacted to the situation. No thinking really, until I knocked him down. Then the only thought in my head was, "YOU CANNOT LET HIM GET AWAY!".

I'm really lucky. From pattern of wounds, it seems he didn't know how to handle a knife at all.
