good video but not realistic.


I don't think they were going for 100% realism. They were trying to make it palatable and somewhat humorous.


i can see that.
but, the message "he picked on the wrong girl" implies that if you own this gun, you won't have to shoot. just show the firearm and bad guys will give up. it takes more than owning a firearm to make you safe. you need firearm training. how to load the gun, how to aim, how to unload the gun, and how to clean the gun. to be safe in a home invasion scenario you need to know how to be tactical in your use of the firearm. hours of practice until handling your firearm becomes second nature. if you have to think about where the safety is or how to load the gun, it's too late. you are in big trouble.

any gun is better than no gun for home defense but a shotgun is better than a pistol.
most people are not skilled tactical para military trained personnel. and just owning a glock won't make you a swat specialist. the advertisement just isn't realistic. playing on the fantasies of the customer is just not responsible.

Who lives in a house that doesn't have a deadbolt type lock on the front/rear doors?

I get you. Still, advertising. It's to be expected. It would be a drag of a commercial if they went through all the steps of proper gun ownership and gun safety. It is somewhat dishonest, obviously the guy isn't going to feint, and just having a gun isn't going to protect you if you don't know how to use it.

I don't think it would have gone over well if they showed the woman shooting the guy, and it would have been a little tedious to listen to training advice. I may be biased here. I love my Glocks.

Don't bite, he's just one of the gun-hating liberals that infests ATS these days.

One of the things I like about ATS is the fact that there are people from all over the world. You learn more from people that have opposite opinions than your own. What fun would it be if we all agreed about everything? There'd be nothing to discuss. I love my guns, I train, my kids shoot and hunt with me, my wife shoots occasionally, I believe education about anything is beneficial, I also respect the anti gun opinion. They aren't for everyone, people that don't live in the states don't get it. They see Hollywood movies and think that's how we all are. I always say I'm responsible enough to have them and childish enough to think they're really cool. I've owned them for approximately 25 years and no ones ever been hurt by any of my firearms. Back to the topic, I like the commercial and love a person that is willing to take care of themselves. My daughters have already decided which firearms they will inherit from my small collection, I'm glad they want them.

This kind of thing happens more than you think and it doesn't make it to the news. If all you do is call 911 the cops show up in time to put you in a bag and call time of death.


Exactly. Depending upon one's location, LEO can take quite a while to get there.

I agree with you, I live in the UK and we have a totally different view of guns, although rifles are allowed, handguns are not common outside of shooting clubs, i think they were made illegal after a school shooting.
I learned to shoot a little .22 when i was in cadets at schools, my shool actually had an armoury! got my first class marksman badge and then got to shoot sa80 when on cadet camp at RAF Connignsby. Obviously this was a few years ago!
I dont want civilians carrying handguns in the country, and i dont thnk there is any desite by most people to see it.
However i can see that the States has a conpletely different culture, i cant see how anybody could expect the States to change, it's ingrained in you as a Right to be able to have guns.
Along with that right obviously comes the fact that your police are armed, that civilains will be shot needlessly and that careless people are going to allow children to gain access and do terrible things. It's jus a big trade off.

I really do like stories with happy endings. For those who cannot watch the video a guy bust down a woman's door and no shots need be fired. There are several web sights that say this type of defense (where a gun is pulled but not fired) happens several hundred thousand times a year.
youtu.be...


Nah. I would kill him and reply to the cops

"I shot my gun because I was in fear of my life. I don't know how many times i pulled the trigger"

100% the correct response for a citizen to commit murder.

Best adive to give a gun owner!!!


Actually if you are ever in a position where you do shoot someone in self defense your best not say anything but " Id like a lawyer before I make any statements" Remember anything you say or do can be held against...
