I've just been informed that it's illegal to have in Mass. anyway! lol so looks like the decision was made for me.

I don't go out at night much, I live in a pretty safe area.. I think I'll just take my chances.

oh and me? with a gun? I have the WORST aiming skills. I would probably shoot myself in the foot.

I'd carry it, but I'm all for inflicting discomfort on anyone who creeps on a girl walking around by herself. Moot point though since it's illegal lol

I think its a good idea Fran. I agree on the get confortable using it idea.
is there a site or study w/ stats on this because I can't think of a single report from any news agency stating this in over 30 years.

It happens, without looking it up myself, it seems that in most cases its Police Officers being disarmed and then shot. Pretty rare though considering all the Police around wearing their weapon in plain view approaching felons to handcuff them.

but what about private citizens who have far fewer such confrontations in their life?

I've heard of people who have weapons being shot before but it's usually not with their own weapon it's with the weapon the criminal already has.

Since they're illegal, I'd go for pepper spray or mace instead. And it comes in handy when you're walking your dog and an a-hole dog goes after him!

I've heard that people crap/pee themselves when you tase them. LOL

Not so funny in real life when you are the medic to deal with them. Also not so funny when it's via a police officer and you need to remove taser prongs..

Depending where you live pepper spray may also be illegal, and mace potency may be dumbed down. Wind can get you in the face with your own spray.. And not everyone goes down even with potent spray. Nothing is fool proof.
