Being attacked is one horrible thing you never think will happen to you. I remember it a little too well. On October 29, 2008, I arrived to work at 9 AM. Only about 30 minutes later, 2 men came in pointing guns in our faces and tied us up. I could feel my cell phone in my back pocket but was too afraid to move. I wasn’t even sure I could reach it. I watched as they took medicine off our shelves and feared for my safety and the safety of my co-worker. Thankfully, they left after taking all of our heavy prescription drugs and were caught shortly after, but the thought of my life being in the hands of criminals was something I didn’t feel I could live with. So I consulted my husband who has a room with about 50 different hunting rifles, shotguns, and a small selection of handguns. Almost immediately after I got home that day, he took me to learn. I now feel like a 60-year-old Annie Oakley with my revolver in my purse at all times. I can remember back to that day, seeing my purse right next to me when they came storming in. I just wanted to throw it at them and run but I was absolutely petrified! Never again will I be a victim. Never again will I allow myself to feel that amount of fear, leaving my life out in the open. My purse is with me at all times. It even has a small hole so I can shoot my gun from the inside!
