This is a discussion on Well, used my Firearm in force other day. LONG within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I don't disagree that shooting the first dog was necessary, and probably even the second. It DOES bother me though that you seem so callous ...

How about a little respect for their souls?

SIXTO, suprisingly it wasn't difficult at all...I just lined up and shot. Both were pretty much running in strait lines when I shot. I'm not sure if I hit the Rott all three times. I didn't take time to look. The mutt was hit just left of the anus on the first shot.
Janq...SKS that's one of the reasons I got in the first place. I use Wolf HP. $7.97 for 20rnds.
Arko, when I didn't mean to come across like that....I did take the time to bury them.
LOL no, I didn't take pics.....why would I do that...of dead dogs? I can post pics of the rifle that helped save my butt though.
Good shoot, and glad your ok. Sorry about your shoting mat.

Glad your safe Frogbones.
Question: Did you have other firearm options to carry that day and WHY did you decide to carry the SKS vs. any other choices.
I'm genuinely interested because I view my SKS as a rifle that I don't mind getting dirty or dinged up. It's not the prized rifle in my collection. Still, I like it well enough.
Again, I'm not critiquing your choice, only curious since it involves an SKS and I own an SKS too,.
Doesn't bother me about being asked why.
Yes, I have other options.
SKS is the choice because it's my "work horse" rifle. Utterly reliable, very basic, shoots a good round, ammo, upkeep, and parts are cheap.
It's sad that these dogs had to come to an end like this and what I mean is becoming feral dogs. I glad you weren't hurt and took the time to at least give them a burial.
I hope all goes well for your father in-law.

Souls huh? You've got to be kiddin me.How about a little respect for their souls?
Your're more worried about a man being "callous" about two dogs that he whacked that could have ripped him apart than you are his well being?

I love dogs, but a man has to do what a man has to do. A canine without a 'master' can be a dangerous member of a 'pack'. Glad you were prepared.

They were dangerous animals that had reverted to their prehistoric predatory instincts.
Good shoot. Sorry to hear about the shooting mat.
Give my best to your father in law.

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
cant believe anyone would feel sorry for an animal that was trying to have one for a meal no matter how many legs it has. i wont stop to count legs if any mammal decides to do me hurt. i WILL try to put it or them down.
