Funny, the link works for me. You're not under some kind of censorship are you? Anyway, yes it really is 100% crap. It's nothing more than left wing propaganda masquerading as a documentary. Try this:

Obviously just what's between the quotes.

Enjoy your victim status


This is what I'm talking about. So everytime I feel like a victim then I should just put my finger on the trigger to protect the world from criminals?

Is it possible you're more scared of life than you are being a victim? Less than 1/2 of 1% of people commit violent crimes. The only way to get that to zero is through government regulations. But you guys don't want that.

I live in downtown Houston. Lots of crime. I never had to draw my weapon because I was scared. I drew it once because the cops were sweeping the building I worked in. They pointed theirs and said raise your hands. I raised my hands and said I have a weapon. They said remove it. I complied and drew my weapon.

Problem is, I wasn't the perp. Some RAMBO'S will end up being perps even though they are not perps.

Here is something else to ponder. What if I was an off duty cop responding to a school shooting. Would some carry and conceal person know I was an off duty cop? Being a minority then I would think there would be a mexican standoff between he and I trying to convince him I was a cop.

After a few minutes of dealing with him I would just shoot the guy.

I'd like everyone to meet a member of the next generation of responsible gun owners. Obviously I have a lot of work yet to do with the boy, but one thing is for sure: He's a crack shot. Now all I have to do is get GUN SAFETY drilled into his brain housing group so that it is second nature, and not something he needs to think about.

This makes no sense. I'll do just about anything for a fellow Texan, but you have completely lost me with your ranting, raving, inserting fictional scenarios, putting words in peoples mouths, diversionary tactics and flip-flopping. What is your point? State what you believe. Do you know what you believe?

I'd like to rehash the OP's origonal claim. He and his wife are separated by some distance. Not sure how that happened in the first place. Anyways, three deliverance people approached his wife. I guess they were threatening to him.

Here is where it gets crazy to me. If his situation is correct then he had the upper hand anyways. He knows he has a gun but he didn't see any guns from the three people.

Unless he's clint eastwood then I'm not even sure why he approached three people with his gun still concealed in that situation. These were people who spiked his "spidey sense." The situation he describes leaves very little options to the INDIVIDUAL.

I can only conclude the situation was not that drastic. If his story is correct then his gun would have been drawn before he even approached them.

He's right handed but was holding the shotgun in his left hand at some point. So if something happens, too many seconds are lost because he had to switch hands.

Teach your son how to handle a weapon like a man instead of RAMBO.

I'm convinced you're simply trolling at this point. Anyway, the three that alarmed him were unarmed and non-threatening except for their demeanor. If he had drawn his weapon and displayed it at them he would have been guilty of brandishing, a 1st degree misdemeanor. If he pointed it at them or threatened them with it he could have been found guilty of assault with brandishing, a third degree felony. He acted entirely appropriately and did neither.

Good for you! That's a big 13 yo you have there, looks like the gun is a little small for him. I was taught gun safety long before I owned my first gun. My father had guns, bird hunted, and made sure we knew not to touch them and why. I was ecstatic when my parents gave me a 16 gauge Ithaca pump shotgun for my 14th birthday. And yeah, I was a big kid too.

That's a great present too. Some would say bound encyclopedia are superfluous in the age of the Internet but I don't think so. I could read by 1st grade and read at an adult level by 2nd grade. My grandmother had a full set of Encyclopedia Brittanica and I used to love reading them when we went to visit her. My parents bought Compton's Encyclopedia for our house but it wasn't the same. I think I got a slalom water ski for my 13th birthday and I was thrilled with that.

Yeah, good choice. Why did you wait so long? We bought our Encyclopedia Britannica when his older brother was three.

I apologize for going off-topic a bit, but I totally agree. What good is an internet encyclopedia going to do if you have lost power, temporarily or permanently, or the Internet just goes down? Besides, there is NOTHING like the feel of a real book in your hand. Our home library includes over 1,000 books of all types; novels, medical textbooks, "How to's" of all kinds from carpentry to gardening, the EB of course, and probably the most important books I have: "The Way Things Work." Those books will be indispensable when/if TSHTF.

I've been building and carrying this library around the country wherever I have moved over the last 40 years (I think I may have just about every book I've ever read) and my wife has been giving me grief over it every time we had to pack them up. She'll realize the importance of a bound library one of these days, and I just can't wait to say, "Told you so!"

Can you clarify the first quote for me please. What do you mean when you say that he had the 'upper hand' because he didn't see a gun on them? Are you saying that because they were seemingly unarmed, he should have drawn in that situation because he could get the jump on them?

How you can accuse people of being Rambo wannabes when you criticise the accuracy of these events simply because you would have been more gung-ho than they were in that situation? Who's to say that they didn't have a concealed weapon and things wouldn't have gone ballistic if he drew a weapon? Who is looking for trouble again?

Nope, until TOR fixed it. Maybe the site blocks some countries' IP. I dunno.
Anyway thanks. Obviously, nothing is as it appears.
I apologize for bothering with such L
AD. Sometimes I forget where do I post. Of course that's nothing new for you.

Well handled and I'm glad both you and your missus are ok.

Couple of quesions:

Did you have a round in the chamber ready to go or would you of had to cock it if things went south?

How tall is your wife? Was she CCW as well?

Wow! This thread got pretty heated since yesterday.

I am amazed this hasnt been pointed out yet.

Your intelligent answers, cool head and reserve are to be commended. You took a situation in which a person was showing bad intent and displayed reserve in not letting him have both barrels. Much respect.

So again. Way to handle Lobos, Wasco!

Lol! That would be interesting. "We were just out fishing and some mean biker had our spot. We tried to talk to him, but he started toward us and he mightve had a gun. We just got out of there."

Hahahaha!

Might be correct, and the outcome is still acceptable to me.

Hats off to you for not making a pre-emptive strike. I think your spidy sense was probably working, but mine has been known to fail me.
