My wife declared, one Sunday morn, “I’d like to have a gun.” I asked her, “Are you scared, or do you want a gun for fun?” I told her she could use my guns whenever she’s alone.

So, with some hesitation and a check book in my hand, I drove on down to Harold’s place. I knew he’d understand. Well, Harold dealt with guns and gear. He recognized my plight.

He handed me the gun. A Smith and Wesson .38. My shopping day was done. He took my cash then wrapped the gun and bullets, too, of course. I took it home and really hoped I’d never feel remorse. My wife unwrapped the gun, and now she had her own defense. We went out in the backyard, nailed a target to the fence. Men like to show their prowess. I knew how to shoot a gun. But when it came to handguns, my experience was none. I aimed straight down the barrel, took a shot. Where did it go? I missed the target and the fence.
