It's better to have and not need. Rather than need and not have!
I am a retired law enforcement officer who had over 28+ years of service. I was introduced to firearms as an armed security officer in Chicago's housing authority projects, (Robert Taylor Homes). Later, I went to work as a law enforcement officer in an Illinois state agency where I used firearms. I rose through the ranks from an officer to a Lieutenant. Since retiring I wanted to share my knowledge of firearms with young people, women, and older persons that may be apprehensive about using firearms.
