New to the forum as well as gun ownership. 36 married with 5 children. Maintenance mechanic at a bread factory. Took about a little under 12 years to convince my wife we need guns in general for protection, what if’s, any and all reasons. She stood firm hating guns of fear for no reason. Then she wanted to stock pile water and can goods because of the pandemic. I then said what if a mob comes out of no where and takes our stuff and I’m unable to defend us. Her reply, we have two mastiffs and a pit bull. I then say what if they shoot the dog’s. Then now her long with me are new members of NRA she bought a 9mm and on a waiting list for an ar-15 and I’m a proud owner of a Glock 20 and also in search of a glock40. It only took a pandemic for her to see things my way. but better late than never.
