    Sounds like a great add to get business.

    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Call enough people stupid for not believing they way you do, I'm sure some are going to bite.

    Interesting ad but it does illustrate the mentality of many people.

    Clearly over-simplified and over-dramatic, but there is truth in there. Even here, how many members suggest:

    * Compliance vs. fighting
    * Carrying on an empty chamber because it is 'safer'
    * Use of their 'command voice' as a response to lethal force
    ...

    Not meant as an 'ad', but rather a piece to get people thinking.

    At least a few get it.

    Unfortunately, for a forum titled "Defensive Carry", there seem to be quite a few.

    For some reason that article reminded me of recent threads where "experts" declare that the 1911A1 platform is an "experts only" system.

    Oh, I get it. It's just that I'm not going to put too much into what is said by someone with such a questionable history.

    Be the warrior in your heart. Live as a warrior. Watch how your life changes!
    ^^^^I'm not really sure what to say about this other than it made me laugh.


    As to the whole ad, there is a tiny bit of truth to it but it's so overdone that it comes off as silly. If you are really trying to reach "Mr. Joe" that ad misses the mark.

    Lol! Me too! It's kind of a corn ball approach and message.

    The entire premise that one must be a " warrior " to learn how to defend themselves is so funny it's stupid.
    I guess it's part of the marketing plan by getting people psyched up enough to swallow their bs.

    If anybody qualifies as a warrior, then it would be you with your Vaquero:)
