Guns are tools and options in the use of force continuum . The best choice is the one most suited to the task at hand. Familiarity, Reliability, accuracy, stopping power, carry options, legality and suitability are considerations. I've been a martial artist and also carried weapons in official and unofficial capacities For most of my life. Short of war or a home invasion, most firearms are a liability. Especially, in anything less than a firefight. Unless you are well trained, professionally proficient and reasonably confident, you're just carrying the gun for another person to use. It was interesting to note particularly in our women's self defense classes, whether in Martial Arts (unarmed) or firearms courses (.38 Cal, wax and primer ammo, polycarbonate panels, live attackers, shoot/don't shoot choices), the students were generally incapable of gouging the eyes or of firing at a live assailant to save themselves. Yet, if we threatened to harm their child, everyone was ready to use deadly force.
