    Overall, WA is NOT a liberal state. The only problem is that King county IS extremely liberal and they sway the vote. Just like NYC in NY and Portland down in OR. One large population center of those fools can ruin it for the rest of the state.

    Yes, you can but is it a good tactical decision? Do you know exactly how many people are out there? Are any hiding where you can't see them, are they armed? Are they drugged up?

    Is it worth the risk? All it takes is one lucky shot by the bad guy and you don't go anywhere but a pine box.

    Shot him multiple times and the guy still ran? What caliber was it? I'm thinking a .380 or .32

Size was a much bigger factor with FMJ bullets but not so much with current defensive hollow points. Shot placement is king.


    Here is more proof the caliber wars are over.

    I don't want to shoot someone over a weed wacker, I certainly don't want to get myself killed over a weed wacker.
    .
    My opinion, but this is a good self-defense mindset. Protect what's truly valuable: the lives and well being of your family and yourself. If it's not worth dying for, it's not worth shooting someone for, and not worth the risk of exposing yourself to unknown dangers for.

    The only reason I wouldnt shoot you over a $100 weedwacker is because I am not allowed to protect property but you know what? It is my weedwacker and you have no right to it unless I give it to you. The way I see it, if you are willing to break into my shed, garage or my home with me there, you have absolutely no fear of my response and I have no idea of what your intentions are. So for me, failure to respond to my orders while on my property will most likely put me in fear for my safety because if you feel you can break in and ignore what I am telling you, then you deserve what you get. I investigate bumps in the night with a shotgun so I am really not to concerned about calibur wars.

    The value you place on life is usually a reflection of the value of your life.

    I can't imagine living a life so pathetic I would kill another person over $100.

    Or 9x19, which has a horrible track record.
