I do not have a handgun - hubby has several. Two of my friends are packing so serious heat. I am a cake decorator and we were going to a cake show/classes in Austin and hubby was all worried and said be careful blah blah blah. I said "Are you serious? Betty may look like Betty Crocker but she is carrying a 38 revolver and Jacque is carrying a 44 - her hubby teaches the gun classes. Both of them can shoot like nobodies business...we are as safe as I can be".
The barn owners where I board are long time hunters and competitive shooters. Ms. Jean may be nearly 79 years old but she was all American champion 8 times. LOL I think I am safe at the barn. But dang...I may have to get a gun myself.
