So it seems most people here all have similar issues when it comes to ending it which makes sense. My question is if u had a loaded gun, do u think u could pull the trigger? The most common complaints I've heard here is that people are scared of pain and method failure. Well this eliminates both. I won't bullshit around. I don't think I can jump off a building/parking garage or in front of a train. Just too scared of the pain. But I really do believe if I had a gun I'd be able to pull the trigger. So just wondering what u all think. Also I've heard that once u have been checked into a psych ward u are no longer able to purchase a gun again. Does anyone know if that's true? That'd be disappointing. I'm 20 and am about to turn 21. Right at the legal age to buy a handgun. Also does this apply to shotguns as well for hunting u think? Do they always do a background check on you? And would that background check show that you've been checked into a psych ward? Lmk what u all think and thanks to anyone who can answer my questions at the end.

From my experience, no, I have a handgun in my possession and I still haven't been able to pull the trigger. Even with a firearm I fear a mistake that will make my suffering worse. It is an effective method for the impulsive, but I guess I haven't quite reached that point myself. When I do decide enough is enough I've opted for an added fall from a ledge double-tap to hopefully quell some of that fear

If you are in the US you can always expect a background check, then with varying degrees of scrutiny based on the state you're in.

As for the psych ward affecting it, it is possible, even likely, if you have been detained as an adult for self-harm/suicide risk. Probably less so if it was only when you were a minor. Also, from my understanding, it is really subjective on the state, the company doing the check, and how much the seller even cares.

The background check should only flag for court ordered committals. Easy way to check if you will fail the background check is to apply for a permit to purchase a pistol. Assuming US citizenship.

I've been to the crisis unit and was able to obtain a carry permit. The only reason i wouldn't use a gun is because i don't want the police to get my baby.

Same. I can't imagine missing the brain stem for some unfortunate reason and ending up in great pains, half conscious and bleeding out until I die.

Exactly, this is my greatest fear, or failing and becoming a vegetable forced to live out my days in misery.

Planning on pills. But what if someone finds me and they pump my stomachs, ya know? I'd have to take a lot. I know I could do pills, it's so easy. But a gun... I don't know if I could. It scares me.

If I remember correctly, generally you need to be involuntarily commited not to be able to purchase a gun. If you voluntarily commit you can purchase a gun.

I can shoot you first. Then dead and I will have to fight over who is next

I'm not from US though...so I feel like all this is just some kind of fantasy that never will happen....

Yay, hope for the rest of us! Haven't been committed anywhere yet, so I should be good to go. I'll just pull the whole "poor young girl needs a gun for self defense" routine.
