Ok guys…I need your expertise. I’m thinking about getting a little gun for myself. I’m moving to Baltimore as you all know and I think I’d like to be proactive about keeping myself safe…although there is always the possibility of my shooting myself. Anyway, what kind of a small gun would you recommend for an older woman who doesn’t know jack about guns? I don’t want a “Dirty Harry” gun, just something that I can use for protection.
Also, when they do a background check on someone who wants to buy a gun, would they reject someone who had a drug conviction (felony) back in 1971? Just wondering…like I’ve said, there are things I did in my youth for which I am not proud.
