I remember we were once given a workshop on what to do in case of a robbery back when I worked at a supermarket.

They had four or five guns and asked us to tell him which ones were real. I remember the guy being really quite worried when I pointed out one of the guns and said "that one, that's very real, it's a Walther." Hee. Turned out it wasn't a Walther, but it's brother or something. Either way, it looked a lot like my dad's (police) gun. Workshop Guy was most disturbed I recognised the type.

I ended up talking to him and he explained that he'd also been part of the police force, and that the weapons were indeed very much alike. Good enough for me.

It's not that scary though. If your dad brings them home, you know what they look like. And ammo was either left at work or stored somewhere childproof - to this day, I have no idea.

Dad's recently been talking about how he's concerned that weapon training for the police force is now generally undertaken with all sorts of ear plugs and things to protect the hearing of the officers. He's had years of training without, to ensure that the people firing the guns won't accidentally shoot themselves in the foot from the shock of the sound. Apparently, if you've never heard one fired by yourself without protection before, you're in for a surprise when that day comes around.

Have you tried testing it out in the shop? I mean, you can buy it online, but it's heavy and if you're not comfortable with the grip, you won't end up carrying it around...

Sometimes you just have to read the reviews, believe the internet hype and pull the trigger...

That gun would blow a hole in the wall, steal your girlfriend, AND trim those overgrown hedges.
