I'm 6ft tall, about 120lbs. I've never been in a fight. I couldn't do fuck-all to defend myself against someone who wanted to hurt me, other than run. I'm not going to count on that being an option, although I will certainly try it first. I legally carry a gun, and train with it regularly, so that if I or someone I care about or even a complete stranger is attacked in my presence, I can stop it, despite my small stature and complete lack of hand-to-hand fighting ability.

I have nightmares sometimes about actually having to use the gun against a living person. I have woken up crying, screaming. But I live in a high-crime area, and I will take emotional stress over death or the death of someone I care about without hesitation.

Do really I sound like I have "murder fantasies"?

This is an annoyingly common misconception. Shooting a gun accurately is HARD; I've been shooting for several years and tens of thousands of rounds and I'm still not all that great of a shot. Shooting a gun is easy, but hitting your target is not. Especially with a handgun, for the untrained.

Your information is extremely outdated. Maybe you haven't heard, but there's a huge and thriving PC gaming industry with many millions of players and hundreds or thousands of developers. Getting any random game running on a Windows box is a matter of popping in the disc and clicking next a few times while it installs.
