If you get killed because you didn't use your gun for defense, it won't matter anyway!

I personally don't believe it's very common not to get a gun back after a legal shooting.

This should be of no shock to anyone with common sense. It's evidence. Are you that hard up your say $500 glock would make or break you??

Not really I agree with this, but it is honestly the least of my worries should the need to defend myself arise. I'm definitely not carrying my 120-year-old single action Army (or any other gun with sentimental significance) for defensive purposes. I honestly can't think of anyone I know that carries that carries anything other than commercially available, run of the mill guns, day to day.

In castle doctrine law states the process of getting your firearm returned will be rather short. Maybe a few months.

Good reason to buy at least two of whatever brand & model of gun you prefer to carry...

No matter the state you reside in. Never give a statement to the Leo's directly. ALWAYS use your attorney.
Tell them your statement will be delivered, through your attorney. They will press for a statement. Be firm on this.

Through experience, you most likely will not get your gun back for quite a while. Go get another and someday you might get an unexpected present.

IT wouldn't break me, that's not really the point though. I'd LIKE to think I'd get it back after a reasonable mount of time... 6-12 months but to NEVER get it back, would suck. That is in no way meant to say I'd avoid a situation just so they would not confiscate my gun.

Personally if I killed somebody with a handgun, I would not want it back, To much bad juju.

Another reason my cheapest gun is my EDC. I have no expectation of seeing my weapon again after a fatal defensive shooting but if I did, great. If not, no biggy, it did it's job.

While it is never easy to have to take someone's life. If it is my life or theirs and I am in the right. I can sleep pretty well knowing I am still here for my family. I refuse to let a violent critical encounter control my life. If anyone finds themself in such a situation and it bothers you, please go get professional help, it happens.... I have co workers that have had to do it and it helped them..

I have no problem carrying a trusted friend that has saved my life..
