    upsetting facts.

    everyone is convinced (without anything like reason) that they can reliably, without ear protection, while being shot at, standing in the open, hit the (maybe) 12"'wide circle of the chest, at 25 yds. gee, that means that they can reliably hit the 4" circle of the brain, at 8 yds, DOESNT IT? :-) The geometry is irrefutable. Since you're so swift and accurate, why worry about a 380 not having enough power, hmm? The 380 suffices to brain people. The Russians proved that, thousands of times, with the Makarov, you know.

    And the great majority of justifiable,( not get your butt sued off civilly) civilian defensive shooting occurs at 4 yds and less, making it DEAD easy for you "deadeyes" to hit the brain, correct?

    The FASTS, however, show that most shots with the handgun MISS a man entirely at 7 yds, if the bad guy is shooting at you, and that most hits are NOT to vital areas, even at 10ft and less distances for the firing. Gee, that means that a cover using head is likely to be missed at 5 ft, hmm? and the shooting at the 25 yd guy, you can just forget about, except for maybe making him duck, firing as you run/dive for cover. Why bother practicing stuff that won't work when you need it, hmm?

    I think I felt a few brain cells die :D
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    Yeah, I think so. Is he telling us to practice or not?

    Maybe he assumes that if he kills enough of our brain cells we'll actually make it to his level.

    No you just have so many you're body tried to release a few out of compassion so the OP would be able to blink again as he is obviously running very low.

    no facts and nothing upsetting, maybe there's a surprise waiting?

    To qualify on my firearm's qualifications would hopefully be a valid reason. Eight of our 60 shots have to be from behind cover at 25 yards (four left of cover, and four right of cover and within a time frame). If you have a problem with that, you may want to talk to all the Range Safety Officers and NRA pistol instructors for Law Enforcement around the country.

    I'm sure they have it wrong. Please contact them and correct them on the error of their ways.


    I didn't think you could do it thru, but you are actually averaging just over 35 posts per day now. Keep up the good work.

  8. I haven't seen FASTS produce any empirical data you provide, except making people very hungry.
    I'm a firm believer in two term limits for all politicians; one in office, the other in prison.

    Your posts hit and miss points. Why not be blunt and come out with what youre trying to say rather than troll around the facts? Were all adults here, why dance around it? Your posts are pretty annoying thus far
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American Soldier....One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.
