Shooting at a target is quite different than shooting at a human being. Experts say you have to shoot to kill. You have to decide before you even pick the gun up if you are willing and able to kill another human being. You are going to be extremely nervous, shaking, maybe some tears that will obstruct your vision. And if you do shoot and kill, what if it was a mistake. Something you will have to live with. Maybe while in prison. Except if you live in Florida or Texas where you can kill anyone and get away with it.
I?m pushing 70. We have lived in 14 States, visited 49, lived in two foreign countries and visited dozens more. We have never thought we needed to carry a gun. But that is a personal decision that everyone must make on their own. I wish you well on your trip. Have fun. It will be a trip of a lifetime for your kids.
