While engaged in that great rite of Spring, mowing for the first time this year. Our freedom of enjoyment (a dubious description I know) by a large aggressive dog wandering the countryside hell bent on causing havoc. Well, okay he was playing catch the bad guy by the wrist which I don’t mind if the dog is known and I know that play doesn’t become an accident. But being a strange to me dog, rather spirited with his play and lack of following commands; I was forced to retrieve the M9 from its location in the house.

One round safely expended to demonstrate how loud it was made the dog both obedient and calm as well as very cognizant of my location. He longer aggressively approached my Aunt nor myself. In the end, no injuries and no direct danger to all involved. All this courtesy of the Second Amendment remaining in place and proper measured restraint in the use of a tool.

If this was some backwards socialist #hole, the grass would still need mowed as the obligation to retreat and wait for authorities to respond to the very low priority of a strange dog on the property out in the country. As the song says. America! # Yeah!

Dude. Prepare for the flames of the next flamewar with you as a target.

ATSers and Americans in general love their pets. Put down the 'owner' (human companion) of the dog; but do not dare to endanger a blessed pet. Americans hate their fellow humans, but they love animals.

He didn't kill the dog.
At least I think that is what he said.

So, you scared a dog?


Awesome story.

I think Ahabstar played it well. That warning shot may have saved the dog's life. I love animals. And like you said, I'm one who's guilty of liking animals more than people in certain cases.... But if one threatens me I'll make a truce with the hippies and use it to fertilize their garden

Hmmm...last time a strange dog came up to me barking I just yelled at it and told it to # off and it did...

The last time a strange dog attacked me I kicked it and it #ed off...

I must say, i've never had to fire a gun to deal with a dog.

Wasn’t vicious so he was in no danger. Just too aggressive with his play. So he learned that I can make a loud noise that hurts his ears and wound his pride.

Full grown bloodhound, before I get accused of fearing teacup poodles.

Your smart thinking and restraint saved the animal's life, and you and your Aunt from being attacked.

Reminds me of how the U.S. "handled" North Korea, with the same good results.

Thank you for not fill'n that poor dawgs guts full-a-lead. Sometimes a fire cracker works the same, but having an excuse to shoot our guns is priceless. I guess if it were a pit, it would be dead right now. I love those dawgs and they get a bad rap.

Actually it was to protect my Aunt. Since he ran up barking at her and tried to play the same game. At first he came back towards me to find out what the noise was and decided I had something to do with it and it wasn’t a good noise.

As I said, well behaved and attentive afterwards and even hung out for awhile. But didn’t try to play grab the bad guy by the wrist and didn’t bother my Aunt afterwards.

I'm glad to hear you aim better than the cops would.

I'd recommend a 12 gauge for home and civil defense.

A birdshot load will minimize ricochet. and with a range under 75 yards, it relieves you of the guilt of putting a bullet through some dudes attic a mile from here.

And if the dog DID turn blood-lusty, you could use the next round of birdshot to actually stop it. God forbid.

If this had been an actual emergency of the criminal persuasion, the sound of a 3 inch shell being racked will almost always convince an assailant to call their final "time out."

Surely, a dog would come off second in a competition with someone armed with a lawnmower?

All I have is an over under that is a little bit longer than a coach gun, for faster reloading than a pump. And a scatter gun would have been less predictable to the projectile location than a 9mm. Would have been a more dangerous situation for the dog and not the desired outcome.

Bang. Dog thinks I better be a good boy because this dude meant it when he said settle down.

Well you fd up. First rule of Gun Club is you shoot to kill. Now that K9 is lawyering up and you will be in court in two weeks fighting for your freedom and money.

Lucky it wasn't a cat or hope it wasn't a dog that feels like a cat.
