idaho sir, please I have done nothing to earn your respect but regardless thank you for your kind words! I will try to respond to each of your points below.
My opinion is just simply what I have been told by others. I too would take a knife over a 7.62, my example was referring to a smaller caliber like a .22 to a .32, so smaller rounds jajajaja. If I am ever in a crowded area, I will decide according to my gut at the time. It would be tough, I totally understand that. It is just hard for me not to defend those weaker than I am. I would much rather die defending innocent people compared to running away to fight another day. Please do not take that as I am against what you are trying to say. I no longer live in Phoenix so crime is not horrendous like where you lay your head at night. My deepest respect goes out to you idaho.
My cousin used to be an officer in Twin and that is the caliber of gun he recommended, that is seriously my only reason for deciding on that caliber. He said the risk of blow through was lower while still allowing adequate penetration and still allowing easier concealment compared to the larger guns. My assumption is that simply pulling a gun will work like the times I pulled my knife, in the past people would crap their pants while someone else called the cops. In my opinion, the best part was I was never charged, fined or anything. I simply told the truth, ?I had no idea what the guy was going to do so I pulled my weapon.? The largest blessing, I never had to kill someone with my knife. By the way, my one functional arm has been compared to an anaconda, from a retired CA officer ; )
My physical limitations really are lack of use from my Right arm and that is the end of my limits. I am tall at a little over six and a half inches tall and I weigh two hundred and twenty pounds. I have always had tight hamstrings but other than that I am very able bodied. I will take your advice and switch into the weapon art sill set. The only bad thing, I signed a contract for two years with the KM instructor but I might just tell him that he is not giving me adequate sparring and just general training, which is not what he told me I would get.
I have a new enhanced CCW permit, just no gun to go with it yet ; ) Instead of a pump, I could buy a used barrel for my automatic shotgun and load it will 00 buckshot. Thoughts? I will wear my gun of choice everywhere except bed. What do I do while sleeping? Our kids mind quite well but they are children. Do I spend $400 on a combination gun safe for the nightstand?
I am VERY blessed to be married to the beautiful woman who said ?yes? to me and GOD. Trust me, she gets very frustrated by my choices but she stays with me. And for your information, we have only been married to each other. Four days a week are spent with my kids while two other days I help my uncle and one day I volunteer at a homeless shelter. She is scared of guns but I think a fun day can be had with a .22 long rifle where we go out and shoot whistle pigs. If she says no to that, I will find a little .22 handgun and work up to the larger calibers ; )
We currently live in a small condominium. However I hope by the time number three is in my arms, we will be living out of the city on a few acres. I have an intact lab that lives with my uncle but labs are not really guard dogs, just lovers. He does bark though. The geese are an awesome idea. My lab is getting older, he will be ten years of age this spring but I will just make the dog freakin? mind and not kills the birds!
I am talking about the bear mace, the mace for bears and people is hardly different at all. The can I used to carry was the biggest / strongest can that was made at the time. I have been told that if I might very well be grilled by a DA, but my defense would never change. I have one functional arm and I felt that my families lives and or my life and or other people?s lives were being threatened.
My wife and I love each other, a lot and we wanted four children from the start. After four we will adopt more kids ; )
EVERYONE and anyone can bring information to the table. My head injuries do not always help but I can only try ; ) Thank you for the advice idaho! When you come back to the state of your screen name and you are in the capitol, it would be awesome to eat a grilled steak and sweet potatoes and maybe a cold beer or two with you, my treat. I am sure you have stories about life, even more than I do ; )
I have never been to other countries other than the ones in North and South America and flights to the Middle East are not really on my plate, neither is Europe or anywhere in the world. Now unless I can drive there, that is a potential vacation, but first I have to covert my rigs to bio-diesel jaa jaa jaa jaa!
