I think I may have made too much of what amounts to getting squeamish. I guess, even though I don't hunt, I still shoot guns and that's about the same thing.
I wouldn't expect to find myself repelling hoardes of invaders, but I still want a Browning Automatic Rifle someday (Yeah-someday when I move to a different state and have $10G to blow
) . I guess that's about the same as wanting a nice sword and planning not to use it on
Thanks, everyone, for helping me work that out!
