Had a chance to do a memory nudge and it reminded me of tihs other Ranger story as Rangers relate to self defense.
A Ranger was at a formal dress affair in his tuxedo. He was sitting next to a gentleman at the dining table with his tuxedo jacket open. His model
1911 .45 cal was obvious to anyone looking.
The gentleman looked at the Ranger and said, "I see you are wearing your .45... You must be expecting trouble".
The Ranger responds, "No Sir, if I were expecting trouble I would be carrying my 12 gauge shotgun".
My above two entries are, in my old and still surviving opinion, verities on the subject of defense.
Basically, for right or wrong, as this is only a personal opinion... I like the idea of size for a self defense weapon. It's the same reason that I
have a Corvette with a large engine, instead of something jazzy, Japanesey, and with a small, high winding, and relatively complicated motor
"There is no replacement for cubic displacement".
