    And don't think for a second that if you are ever involved in a less than pristine shoot (or you have a DA who wants a reputation as being tough on "gun crime" ) that these words can't come back and bite you square in the ass

    Just sayin.
    And what you are just sayin has a lot of wisdom in it.

    Lets hope that we don't find outselves in that situation. Shooting to wound/kill whatever, is easier said than done. I know. Some people are natural born killers, the rest of us have to be trained and be in the right situation to do something like shoot at someone. I remember the first deer I took, at the ripe old age of 17, I felt cool as a cucumber up until I had to gut it, then I barfed. I got the job done though. Same thing happened later on while in the Marines. Truth is, when one is in a fight, especially a gun fight, you don't really react the way you thought you would. Lets just hope we don't find ourselves in a shooting situation.

    You were guttin' deer in the Marines?

    Joke,

    Seriously I agree 100% I don't ever want to kill a human being if I don't have to I don't ever want to be placed in that position again. All I want is to stop you from hurting me.

    I cleared my house one day when I knew there was someone in there, I could hear the blood rushing through my ears, I could feel each heart beat and I was convinced that that who ever was in the apartement (Maintenance as it turned out ) could hear every breath I took. The only thing I could see was the front sight on my pistol.

    Long story short, I DO NOT EVER want to feel like that again
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    Well, if you're not carrying the gun you've still got that chance of being in a fatal shooting. It's just that you're guaranteed to be the one that ends up dead.

    I agree with the part about avoiding trouble...one of my basic goals is to get through the rest of my life without killing anyone else (or shoveling snow....but killing would be a bigger bummer).

    As far as the title of the thread, I carry pretty much all the time, but I refuse to always be serious...


  7. Absolutely BS on the "shoot to wound" idea. Most of the time simply hitting anywhere on the BG will be a stretch. Check out the number of missed shots fired by supposedly trained police officers. Lack of experience with the firearm controls, inability to reach and draw the firearm, and poor marksmanship are some of the biggest problems with CCW licensees. I understand that not everyone has a lifetime of experience with guns but those folks need to put a lot of time in with their carry gun. Simply getting the license, buying a pistol, and putting it in a holster is not the answer.

    I once asked a LEO friend why he carried a Glock 20 10mm? With a wry grin he replied, "So I don't have to pay for his wheelchair the rest of my life."

    He has a point.
