    Arrow MUST READ Defensive shooting Consequences(this really happened)

    This is a pretty long read but an extremely good one.
    This really opens your eyes when it comes to your life or your attackers.
    There are a few spots that we always see pop up here on our site.
    > He used a gun more powerful than most LEO's use(10MM).
    > He used a very dangerous bullet a hollow point that causes as much damage as possible.
    There is alot of other anti-gun garbage to see here, but sad to say there are always anti's in court.
    Hope they're never on the jury if what we all pray doesn't happen does.


    Trail of evidence - Trail of Evidence - MSNBC.com
    "Fear is nothing more than an emotional response to the perception of danger coupled with the belief that I can't handle it."
    "If you change that belief to 'I can handle it', you'll no longer experience FEAR. You'll simply see what you are facing is a challenge... an opportunity to test yourself.

    Oh wow - very tough scenario. Nobody knows what actually happened but Mr. Fish. With the evidence about their characters, I'm surprised that the jury delivered a guilty verdict. Lots of anti-gun sentiment voiced by the jurors. Caliber or weapon, hollow point bullets (who DOESN"T carry them for defensive rounds?). Lots of conjecture and theorizing. I can see how quickly this case can become distorted and twisted.

    I carry a Glock 30 SF because I want the stopping power. The jurors even questioned why he didn't try to hit the other guy with the gun instead of shooting him, since it was made of metal...? HUH???!!!

    I went up to .45 cal because of all the stories I've read of 9mm NOT stopping BG's, especially drug-affected types. I want something that's going to drop somebody and not let them keep coming with a knife or other weapon.

    This is very unsettling story. Lots to think about. I hope Mr. Fish can get off on appeal.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling
