  • One must be careful.  For instance, in the scenario the man in the video described, he unholstered and pointed his weapon at at least one of the men before any of the men physically assaulted, brandished their own weapons, or did anything which would have objectively put the man in the video in immediate fear of grave bodily harm.  Now, depending on which State this scenario occurs, there could have been a variety of different legal outcomes.  For example, in the State in which I reside, if I had acted in this manner under the same circuмstance, I could have been charged with a crime, because there mere act of unholstering a pistol and pointing it in in a general direction is considered the use of a deadly weapon, which can happen only after I am objectively in a state of fear of my--or others in my immediate vicinity--immediate and grave bodily harm.  The acts of the vagrants in this scenario would not have risen to that level.  Now, does that mean I agree with that, and more importantly, disagree with the actions this man took to ward off an obvious threat?  Of course not.  But unfortunately, the laws in many States are not written in your favor, but instead in the favor of criminals. 

    Just something to think about. Or rather, know the laws of your State, and understand that said laws can, and do, change from State to State.

    In my state full of ultra liberal, gun rights haters, you’d be charged with menacing and making terroristic threats.  CPS could go to your home and take your children, even if the incident occurred elsewhere and didn’t involve your children.

  • Key point!

    "We need to be prepared at all times".

    Being confronted with overwhelming force is a common occurrence.

    Carrying our Rosaries and guns daily for self protection is a necessity.

Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

  • In the news in my community, a crazed 50 y.o. man entered a liquor store and brandished it at several customers before charging the clerk.  While he was chasing customers, the clerk pulled out his weapon and shot the guy dead.  Surveillance cameras proved that had the clerk been unarmed, he’d most likely have been killed.  Turned out the would be thief was AWOL from a court-ordered drug re-hab center.

    Then it was providential for the crazed 50 y.o. to leave this earth.

    BTW, what weapon did the clerk use to send him on his way ?

  • Here's a family that doesn't "get it" or even want to "get it."

    Yikes! They are at your back door right now!

    I see I didn’t proofread very well!  The criminal had a samurai sword and the clerk a 9mm which he legally conceal carried.

  • Glock (laughing).

    Honestly I don't know. I traded a customized Commander for a stock Glock and have never looked back.

    Ask Bonaventure. He's a 1911 heretic. (still laughing)

  • A 1911 with a 15-rd single stack?

    Talk about being heretical.

    This is a 'carry' thread. Exactly how is someone supposed to carry a 1911 with one of these?
