Do you think all gun owners want to kill someone? I'm not even sure how to respond to that. I have owned a rifle since i was 12 and have never
thought about using it on another human being.
Self defence does not equal want to kill.
Self defense most certainly IS a want to kill. To even shoot towards someone without a desire to end them is a road that leads to misery. Either you
will flinch and they will get YOU, or you will accidentally injure or kill them any how, and will be entirely unprepared psychologically for the
event. Either way, it's a bad business, and you're better off investing in a good pair of running shoes than a firearm.
Shooting to scare doesn't work - it pisses folks off, lets them know that you really don't mean it, and they will get you come hell or high water.
Shooting to wound, especially in a SHTF situation is the equivalent of a death sentence any how, and a long, drawn out, painful one at that. It's
just plain inhumane.
Life and death ain't target practice where you're just punching holes in paper.
For your own personal sake, i hope everything you just said was a joke. If you think running away is going to save you and yours, good luck. Just
don't come knocking on my door asking for help when SHTF. Be prepared for the worst, hope for the best, and survive in the end. Attitudes like
yours is why burglary rates are on the up.
Be advised: what I said there may have been somewhat tongue in cheek, but it was most certainly not a joke.
No where did I say I was going to run anywhere - that's my advice to those who are too squeamish to end an opponent. I am not.
If you can't bring yourself to drop them like a pole axed steer, your only options are to run like hell and die tired, or give yourself up right then
and there, and get it over with ASAP. Either way, you're not likely to make it long-term.
I think you need not fear me or mine coming to ask for help. Never have, never will.
Burglary rates are actually DOWN in my neighborhood. Evidently word gets around, and most everyone here knows that I won't lose a wink of sleep after
popping an intruder. You can either trust me on that, or read the police reports. Doesn't make much difference to me.
Nossir, I meant what I said. If you're not ready to drop 'em in a puddle of their own juice, you're not prepared to defend yourself. Doesn't mean
to go that far, it means you'd damn well better be ready to if they want to take it that far.
In a SHTF scenario, the ONLY two alternatives to defense are to run like hell or surrender up front, and them's the facts, Jack.
