    That mall is NOT in a good area! Or the Orange Park Mall over by NAS Jax? The "Westside" is a pretty bad area, too. Then again, most areas around Navy bases tend to be pretty bad...
    fludy.....your first guess was right.....Regency Square. I'm not the happiest of father/husbands when I go there......which isn't often, but sometimes I end up there with the wife and kids for 'whatever'. Made the trip last weekend for the "tax free"--"back-to-school" sales and left with much stuff... ....just very tiring maintaining "yellow" on a swivel for several hours. Even a constant presence by JSO dosn't curb some of the BS and 'banger' activity.

    I'm with Lima.

    No way in the hell I'm allowing myself to be removed from the scene.
    They can have everything on my person including my underwear but damn if they are removing my person from the premises.

    I'll fight like they just slapped my mother and if I get shot well that'll suck but I'm not going anywhere, period. The option does not exist in my mind.

    I like Lima's response too.

    But as I get older in this arena, I'm getting quite reluctant to put my intentions in writing to "what if" scenarios especially in public forums. I have this nagging thought that if I am ever in a shooting situation, someone will dig it up and use it against me!

    Bad situation.

    Don't really know what I'd do, and maybe I'm being impulsive here, but I'm thinking that if it's me, it's go-time.

    I always hear people post about not saying anything about their tactics, saying what guns they have, etc. Who the heck is going to know who "Thumper" (or anyone else for that matter) is? Just don't be stupid and use a real name. Do you really think some DA is going to come to this obscure site and scour EVERY post for something similar to a situation that "went down"?

    You really think he's going to be able to get a warrant for an IP address with NO name, motive or proof?

    This is straying off topic. Let's not take this any further in this thread.

    Okay, but have you ever heard of any evidence from a gun forum that resulted in a prosecution? I'm not talking about the bangers and other losers on MySpace and those other sites where they post pictures, videos and actually brag about crimes they've committed. Even the infamous internet "Gunkid"...all his postings over at Glocktalk didn't even bring him down. His ex-wife did.

    I keep my gun on my hip or on my back. I always have a round in the chamber, and 6 more in the clip. I always assume they'll want my wallet or keys. I'd stay calm, say i'm getting my wallet pull out my Glock quickly, shoot immediately before he could respond, then disarm him.

    Yup, I saw a real nice, almost new one at the gun store. The guy told me a state trooper had it before me and only put two clips thru it. I only paid $575 for it. I couldn't pass that up

    I love it. I used to carry a 9mm EAA Witness, and its ok in the winter time when I have a lot of clothes on, but in the summer when its harder to conceal I wanted to get something new.

    How's the reliability? I've heard the G36 can be finicky with some types of ammo.

    To be honest I haven't shot it enough to really be able to tell. I went to the range with 200 rounds of some 230 grain rounds. It fired beautifully, and it didn't jam once. It has low to moderate recoil and it didn’t kick like I expected it to. I've only had it for a few months so I really haven't established 100% reliability with it yet. From what I can tell, and have heard it is a sound gun.

    No, I personally, have not. But like I said, this topic is irrelevant to this thread.

    If you feel this subject merits discussion, then start a new thread.

    Sounds good. Is it really that much thinner than the standard Glock thickness? I'm wondering how it would compare in size to a Kahr PM9. If it's not too much bigger, it would be great to replace a payload of 6+1 9mm with 6+1 .45.

    I know I could look up the dimensions, but it's always hard to tell without a subjective opinion. I wonder if anyone here has the PM9 and G36 and would post some pictures or links of side-by-side shots.
