    Considering that a gun is about 30 times more likely to be used against a resident than against a criminal intruder, perhaps it would be safer if you packed some mace instead. You don't have to be a very good shot with mace, you don't have to worry about shooting first and asking questions later, and you can keep it under your pillow without fears of a tragedy.

    Gun ownership is not for everyone but if you want to make sure to get training. Training is more important than the firearm purchase itself. Luckily there are a lot of good training options in Florida and I would recommend a glock 19 if you want a handgun. Good luck and if you decide to purchase a firearm remember safety first wear your eye and ear protection and have fun. It is one of my favorite hobbies oh and get a small safe http://www.meijer.com/s/gunvault-minivault-deluxe-...

    Are you relocating in attempt to distance yourself from someone who intends to harm you?

    I used to teach CHL courses. There are some folks who should not own a firearm. IF you decide to get one, learn how to use it properly. And if you ever have to drop the hammer one someone, you better not hesitate, or you'll die. Fact.

    If it helps you feel protected, I don't see why not. Undergo proper training, protection, etc. Guns are not toys.

    Be safe.
