    I agree, with the minor exception that I'm not sorry to say it. Someone coming at me with an axe handle or a bat is just a form of suicide on their part!

    Give Blaze a gun and then charge him with an axe handle. I bet he shoots.

    School of hard knocks, with honors.

    Here is old school at its best.
    ~
    In any fight not sanctioned as a sporting event, there are no rules.
    ~
    If some one is bigger, stronger, or armed with any form of a weapon, it is your duty in the fight to equalize the odds.
    ~
    Anyone with a stick that will add at least 30 inches to his reach is deemed a threat and putting them down will be a matter of self defense, period.
    ~
    I don't care what your age is, what your physical ability is or what degree you have in whatever defensive tactic.
    ~
    Anyone coming at you with something that will inflict grave bodily harm, gave up his right to a fair fight when he picked up the handle showing his malicious intent.
    ~
    I don't run and I don't call 911.

    I doubt it. He would probably call 911 and wait for the cops to come 5 minutes after he expires.

    In my case, that might actually be why the guy went to get the axe handle in the first place. LOL

    Same age as you, and I had my gall bladder taken out about a year ago. Since then, I sound like the recovery room at a colonoscopy clinic every day of my life! HA!

    Every jurisdiction that I am aware of that has a "duty to retreat" law, has a caveat in it that the duty only kicks in if you can safely retreat. In other words, if, like me, any of your infirmities include gout and/or plantar faciitis (if you don't know what it is, multiply the pain of gout by a factor of at least 5 and go from there), you're not running anywhere that most people couldn't catch at walking speed. And since turning your back to a guy threatening you with an axe handle isn't a great tactical decision either, your "duty" to retreat is null and void where being able to *safely* retreat is part of the law.

    For the last six months or thereabouts, I've been stove-up crippled with plantar faciitis. Most days I look like Grandpa McCoy walkin' out to the mailbox (you youngins' can search YouTube for "The Real McCoys" to get that reference). I've been thinking about starting a thread in the Off-Topic forum about it to see if anyone has any miracle cures for it. Had six cortisone shots for it so far, and the pain from those makes the cure almost worse than the disease, plus, obviously, they haven't worked more than very temporarily anyway. Maybe now that I've broached the subject, I will start a thread.

    Anyway, I could neither effectively or safely retreat if my state law required the attempt. I'm pretty sure that your safety is protected by law even with a duty to retreat clause in your use of force code section in MN too.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    I have had about 2 dozen steroid shots over the last ten years. I've always found that coming home and taking a pain pill, then going to bed and sleeping it off kept me from hurting too much. These are limited to a max of three in any one year as they destroy your immune system. And then you get sick with flu like symptoms for a month or so. Running is out as it jars the spine too much. So gun fire will ensue if an axe handle comes my way in an attack.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

  9. If he choose to get beat with the axe handle, that's his choice but now just because he believe he should do that, don't mean I have to play. No not this cookie and like some have said, I'm 59 years old I'm not playing this game.

    It seems most of us in the 55+ age group feel the same way.

    Now that's what I'm talking about, not today or never.
