  •  I was just thinking about how you feel with a gun. (8+ / 0-)

    In musing about these kinds of things, we inevitably project ourselves not it.  The first thing that came to mind was versatile.  You engage in fighting sports, this is an addition to your repertoire.  Then I thought, connection to your traditions.  Self-preservation and self-protection being inherent in the society you respect so much and feel so connected to.  I mean absolutely nothing negative in these musings and hope they are not disrespectful.

      disrespectful.

      You may be on to something here with this:

      I think this right - I do think of it as an "addition". It's funny because the first time I did ITPS (Israeli Tactical Point Shooting), I thought: "Man, I think I trust my Martial Arts Background more than my gun" (I am not a great shot - heh). And yes, it does fit in with other things as well in a connection to "traditions".

      Actually I appreciate your comment. Well done.
