No..then every tom dick and harry would own one. Having a safety class would raise the cost of ownership. Most of the people i know could care less about guns..one dude i work with would probably wind up shooting himself, hes the "barney fife" of the shop.

...define "large"...?... .40, 10mm, .44spl/mag, .45, ..460mag, .500mag, .454casul, ..?

Depends on who you're talking to. I wouldn't trust an airsoft gun to a guy who just got out the looney bin for fits of blind rage. Everyone with a stable head and that knows how to carry a gun properly, safely, isn't going to go around brandishing it, will use it solely for self defense purposes if need be, and wants to carry should have one.

is OP new to handguns?... i'd recommend taking a basic pistol course for starters... if you plan on going beyond just target shooting, ..i'd also recommend advanced training - that's where you really get the understanding of properly employing it in dynamic SD situations: proper extension, firing off the draw, trigger slack-out, dealing w/ malfunctions under pressure, shoot-while-moving, proper holster/reholster, mag changes, close-quarters, room-clearing, low-light, etc...

Not literally "everyone."
But competent people should. Now, how we weed out the incompetent.. it's complicated.

Well I just got a new house and to my understanding I could discharge in my yard (although it wouldn't be a habit) and I just wanted to verify. I would be firing into a suitable backdrop that contains the bullets on my property. Firing in my back yard would be a once a month thing IF that. I've shot with buddies and their 9mm before and I grew up with a 22 hand gun as well as rifles. I do have a hunting license and have taken those basic classes before. I do intend to take a more advance course if I were to own a larger handgun.

Your neighbors can report you, even if you're on private property; and the cops will stop you from firing.

ask me how I know.
