I'm going OT in all kindness and no criticism is meant. Nor to people shooting guns (I also used to shoot long time ago) and especially neither to yourself.
I understand you're a Pastor and I can't hold myself expressing how awkward I feel about the idea of a man of faith holding a gun.
Since I moved in France few years ago I'm very close to few monastic communities. Both benedictines monks and nuns. Quite few of them are very close friends of mine and I just couldn't ever imagine them even getting closer to a gun.
I guess just the idea would be almost hilarious to them. (We happen to kid a lot among ourselves)
I acknowledge that Europeans and North American holds different opinions on this matter and I guess from this side of the pond we struggle to fully grasp the "gun culture" quite popular overseas.
Furthermore, I'm catholic and I suppose you're protestant, therefore we both knows already the friendly differences we hold on other topics 😊
Once again, this is just a personal consideration and you're obviously free to ignore it.
God bless you, David.
