    Kudo's to you for taking that outlook.

    Not that having a firearm is a bad thing. But it's not the only thing.

    To Guntoter, First, I commend your common sense and/or training in the first example, but you kinda made my point in the second. You yelled out that you had a gun and the assailant ran away. So how did actually having the gun change that outcome?

    The point of a handgun is to kill people, and the only reason for a law abiding person to use one is to stop another person from harming themselves or others. I believe there is a lot of training that is needed to know what those situations are then most gun owners really comprehend.
    Having a gun without such training is more likely to get you or other innocent people harmed, then it is to prevent crime. A gun is not to threaten someone to stop doing something, it is to stop them period.

    If everyone who owned a gun had the training you had, I would have no problems with people carrying, but sadly most don't. Being ###### on the gun range has nothing to do with what I am talking about.

    And BTW, used to hunt and owned rifles and bows before I moved to Las Vegas, and would hunt again, so I am not just anti gun. I am anti stupidity.

    "...is to stop another person from harming themselves or others."
    Sorry, I meant "... yourself or others"

    Exactly.

    Clear leather and fire, then fire again to make sure.

    That weapon is not something to be brandished as a threat, it is something to end the conflict - period.

    Colt .45?

    Don't do that in NYC:biggrin_25513: Knives HAVE to be conceled, NOT EVEN THE CLIP CAN SHOW! Also to be legal in the city it must take two hands to open ( no flip open or thumb open)

    Yeah it's best to avoid it when you can, but when your car's blocked in by a pick up truck and the other guy's about 100lbs bigger then you and pulls out a 10'' butcher knife on you and your wife what would you do?:biggrin_25524:
    Scream like a little girl or draw a weapon? I did the only thing I could drew my lil PT22 and told him to leave. No shots fired, no on hurt, and the cops pulled him over down the road a ways.
    He told them he had a real bad day and was going to teach me a lesson for cutting him off! I don't know if I pulled in front of him or not.
