lol... you are right. that's why I keep a baseball bat in my car. Because you never know when you might feel like stopping by the batting cages
right? Course the nearest batting cages are over an hour from me but that doesn't matter. You see, I've had enough personal combat training that I
am afraid to get in fights because after a point everything is muscle memory.
(I won't hesitate to attack someone with a gun either. I am an expert marksman so I understand exactly how they work. If you are too close to me...
you will maybe get one shot before I've closed the distance, disarmed you and probably broken some bones in the process.)
But, I don't want to hurt anybody and more than half of my training taught me how to kill. Sometimes I wish I had never been trained. (because I
can't lose my temper and take action. Ever. If i lose control of myself somebody will get hurt.) Other times I'm glad it's there.
But none of my training involved baseball bats. I've only pulled it out of my car twice in all these years, and each time it acted like a deterent
giving me a few seconds to calm down and scaring the living tar outta the punks that were stepping up. But that's just my solution. My dad used to
carry around a roll of quarters wrapped in duct tape (loaded fist), some people carry a collapsable baton. Others tazers or mace.
But I am not advocateing violence... only self defense. And if it's a question of taking someones life I recomend against it.
