a person actively engaged in an art, discipline, or profession, especially medicine.
This week we discuss the difference between someone that just collects guns and someone whom claims to own firearms for personal defense.
What are you? Are you a practitioner, a enthusiast or just a collector? There is nothing wrong with any of these labels as long as you are honest with yourself.
Do you own more then 5 firearms and also have not taken more then a few Defensive Handgun courses? If that is you and you tell people that your main purpose of owning firearms is for self/personal defense then you may be lying to them and to yourself.
Get out and train folks, and when you do, make sure it is in context and realistic.
