    I own a fair number of firearms, partially because I also gift or loan them to my sons and son in law.  I have several active bids out on auction over the next two days but doubt I pick up anything.

    There are a couple of calibers I would like to own.  There is an active robbery gang operating around here.  One homeowner was shot at as she fled here home.  While one group was arrested, several homes were broken into after their arrest so now law enforcement thinks it may be an organized street gang operating.  LEO are 25 minutes away from a 911 call so having a gun around is extra insurance as I am not able to run and am caring for relatives who are absolutely bedridden.  In an invasion, I could not retreat to my safe room without abandoning said relative and I will not do that so I am limited to making a stand.

    I have hunted in my life and have farmed most of my life and have killed both wild and domestic animals but at a point in my life, found killing to be abhorrent to me after some traumatic events when I was 19 or so.  I don't like that a stand is my only choice but there it is.
