I am not afraid of using a long gun at anytime. A long gun has its place and a rifle has been used for hunting and to protect family and self. I use many firearms that I have chosen the Glock and Sig Sauer out of them. The rifle includes from .30/,30 to .44 magnum. The ammo is a major factor that you have to be very careful and responsible every second when operating any firearm. Not only in memory do you need to follow your 4 Universal Safety Rules, but have then become a part of you like breathing, like breathing, not worry. I do not wish to put a hole through some ones home or hurt a person.
