Good evening Jennifer:

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general information regarding your question. I understand that you may be going through a difficult time and it is my hope that the general information provided here can be of help.

Just to be clear, as it is important, I want to make sure that what you stated in your question (that the weapon was a "pistol"). Would this be correct (i.e., it was a pistol and not a long gun)?
