    have you been in a situation that would merit the use of a gun.

    Just wondering since you didn't mention any, or say that your conversion came about after an incident.

    If the answer is zero - then maybe you are afraid of shadows.

      and both time I believe It saved my life.  On both occasions the pistol defused a situation and made bad guys make good choices.  On both occasions I would have been justified both morally  and legally in shooting, but I gave them the chance to live and I hope they came away from their encounters a little less happy with their chosen profession, that being robbery.
