Ok, I did it. Took my Home Defense class this past weekend. Total of 12 hours and got my NRA certificate AND Certificate for MA. LTC. VERY informative. I learned the stances and chose the one that is best for me (even though I am going to practice the other two). When You can actually shoot someone. There is alot of thinking in your mind before You make that decision....to shoot somebody. I know most of you already knew this, BUT some of us don't and just think that because someone is coming to you (in certain instances) that you can just blow them away...wrong! We had about 33 in our class from people who have shot a gun before and those who have never shot. Alot of techniques for the home...too much to put on here, my fingers will get numb from typing! All I can say is, IF any of you have not gone to one of these classes, do so. Next class for me will be the "Out Of The Home Defense". All in all, I learned alot and I will continue to practice what I learned and take more (if need be) classes to better Myself, Family and the innocent people around me.
