    Yes, but as stated accuracy and knock down power should more than compensate. Plus there is the potential for a through and through.

    Depends on the height of the attacker/ how he is standing when the round hits him. It could take his head off if the placement is right.

    What I worry about is the lack of high capacity jeeps.

    I know how you feel being alerted to a suspicious noise and trying to get people around you to be quiet and freeze. It's madding, glad your wife was aware, the 4yr old is tough to keep quiet when needed. Practice freeze drills with my wife and kids and that has helped. Cling-On.

    Just to satisfy my curiosity, could you furnish a couple more details? The setup you describe sounds odd and vaguely creepy. Is the area residential at all - that is, are there houses close enough by that the people you heard could have filtered down from a neighborhood of some sort, of would they have had to drive there and park?

    Did you see any cars parked anywhere besides your own?

    How busy is this road at night, typically - lot of traffic, or nearly deserted?

    Yes, indeed. I hope that you don't give up on making contact with the local authorities, not the Staties. I know nothing bad happened that you know of, but it's a good thing whenever the public lets the police know that they notice suspicious activity and are discomfited by it. It strengthens the partnership between us and the cops by showing we care, and I think it provides more motivation for them to step up their presence in the area.
    yes, what was this place just some stores that the loggers used to buy stuff at like a small abandoned ghost town?
    maybe you and a lot of other good cc people should go there on a weekend in the middle of the day and have a bar-b-que .
    sort of show the creeps everyone knows about them.
    that's the type of thing i bet longrider would like to do.

They look like they were last open about 30 years ago, before the spotted owl killed the logging in the area...
    LOL Having hunted in and around that area a few years back I knew exactly where you were talking about immediately... Thar's some strage 2 legged predators in that general neck of the woods.. Glad you and the family are safe and that your SA was top notch that night.

    Wow, I was getting that queasy SHTF feeling in my gut while reading that story. Not a moment to spare in your escape.
