    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...

    Bullet placement is a lot like real estate: location, location, location.

    I agree with some things such as not enough shooting practice, not being acquainted with good defense tactics, and not being aware of your surroundings. However, I feel the majority of CCW people do shoot at the range, some more than others. I believe most CCW people clean and lube their guns. I believe they look at videos about handling and shooting guns online. I believe the majority learn to realize how important a good holster and gun belt are.

    I doubt there is any other country that has people carrying guns which are better informed than CCW people in the U.S.

    Plus we have the best selection of firearms available.

    Yeah, BUT if you've got some guy hyped up on PCP coming at you, you'll need to be REALLY accurate with a 22lr, or just fairly accurate with something having a bit more stopping power.

    I'm not saying you need to carry a .45 with 15 rounds, but maybe a happy medium.

    Tolerance of the intolerant leads to the destruction of tolerance. “You are also reminded that any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest,” in the land of the free.

    If they are on a drug that allows them to push through pain compliance, the only way to stop them is blood loss (which a bigger hole is better) and cns shots (which placement is key, no matter the caliber)

    Theres a cops episode where a wannabe thug gets one .22 slug to the chest and drops dead on the spot. They show the cop giving CPR to a guy with a shredded heart outside a Walgreens.

    As an instructor I agree with the OP. I've seen too many morons who believe they know it all. Then they come to class and find they don't know jack.

    10 rounds of .22 cal in someone's chest and you have a problem. You're probably getting arrested. I'd prefer one or two from a .40. Easier to explain.
