    Okay, I am all for not laying out all one's cards, but I don't follow... what do you fear from "good guys"? I would have thought most of us view each other as allies, more or less.

    allies yes, but loose lips sink ships. If some of my tactics become common knowledge or practice, I loose my advantage; both on the street and in the court room. I will share most of the knowledge I have, but some stuff needs to remain tricks up my sleeve.

    I see your point SIXTO - main thing I reckon anyways is - any BG's reading our discussions better endevor to avoid CC members - because for most part we are a dedicated group where defence of self is taken VERY seriously.

    Very few potential/willing victims here !

    I am sure that some BGs are smart enough to do this type of research, but I do not think this would be the place they would do it. It would be far more advantageous for a BG to study the tactics of the police, as they are far more likely to encounter resistance by the police. Since most of the "smarter" responses to scenarios on this forum are based on LE or Military tactics in one way or another, the BG would not learn anything here that they would not already learned studying LE tactics.

    Also IF a BG is smart enough to do research and prepare prior to his crime, then it is far less likely for us to encounter him/her in our typical "thug like" scenarios. This smarter prepared BG is not the one who is going to hold up the local gas station or quick-e-mart. They will find targets that pay out better, in an environment they can control more, so it is less risk for them. They would also try to avoid any confrontations or contact with others during the commission of their crimes.

    Also, most would know that they are far less likely to be caught by the police if they avoid all violence during the commission of their crimes. Non-violent crimes are much less of a priority for the police, and thus more go unsolved and some even get no attention at all other than a report. With our criminal justice system today, only a very small number of crimes are ever solved, and even less result in a conviction. The smart BGs know this and will try to stay below the radar.

    I am much more worried about the "word of mouth" lessons that criminals share with each other. This is VERY common in jail/prison. A two bit thug that goes to jail can actually become a better criminal WHILE in jail. Rehabilitation for some means they become a better criminal for the next round.

    I really don't care if a BG knows if I have a loaded Mossberg 500 Pistol Grip Pump leaning up against and a loaded Glock 17 on my nightstand. What is he going to do? Bring his liberal lawyer with him when he breaks in :P

    I don't think the vast majority of the BG's are smart enough to use a computer, but even if one or two are, maybe they will realize that there are quite a lot of average people that aren't afraid to defend themselves. I'm much more concerned about our wonderful ATF boys.

    I guess I haven't thought of it. But since I have a tendency to blog at work, the second I figured out that someone else on the system was reading my posts. I removed all distinguishing features anywhere I go on the web.

    Without a doubt , some BG's will be researching info on the net. luckily, most of what we type isn't totally a play by play tactical map.
    I have run in to subjects researching criminal handbooks / how to manuals on the web.

    Cool

    Well , your average mugger- convenience store robber - or drug dealer
    probably isn't looking to beat us at gun games.
    They have too many sheep they can go after.

    I might have some concerns about home invasion/robbers looking
    for targets , so I won't be posting details about my Maserati collection
    or the bags of gold double eagles I keep in my sock drawer...

    In all honesty... they can read this forum as much as they like. Let them continue. I don't welcome having to use my firearm, but I will. Too many hours gunfighting with government agents has dulled me to it, as sad as it sounds.

    Bring me your weak, unwilling to work. Bring me your sad and criminal intent. They will find no mercy from someone who has worked so hard for what little they have. I have been trained and will not go quietly into the night. Will they?

    This is very true anyone can get access to the computer and internet if they want to. They just have to be smart enough to use it!!!

    Let them research all they want.

    What they will find out is that there are lots of aware and alert people on the street, some of whom are armed with up to three guns and most likely that the caliber of one of them will start with a 4.

    Of course they do. At least, the smart ones do their research. And the smart ones are the folks we'll never see.
