My father represented this drug dealer, guy's brother went to jail. Dealer was pissed, thought it was my dad's fault. Had some people go over to visit our house. Only problem was, my dad had already walked out and left us. They were pretty pissed off. I was ten. After that, this kid I was in school with, his dad thought I should learn to defend myself. So, he took me and his son to the gun club every Saturday. Taught us both to shoot.
