He'll be in for awhile because of the chase and a few other warrants out, but he'll see the light of day again and I wouldn't be surprised if he came by again.
It's got me thinking that it's time for me to get a gun. That's where you guys come in. What kind should I get? What kind of budget for a gun, accessories, and a safe (I have kids) am I looking at?
Take a gun safety class first. Ask your instructor question if you have them. as for a n00b & hand guns. Go to a indoor rang & rent several different pistol,s. If you are not gonna take the time to shoot & learn how to become proficient with your fire arm. I suggest a Judge. Point at bad guys face , pull trigger, bad guy dead
EDIT/ OH & move the **** away from California
