    Truth be known, I'm more like a werewolf than anything, or so says my wife.

    Sheepdog or underdog, it's just a term meant respectfully towards a certain character of male and or female, that will for what ever reason go to the aid of someone in danger or need. It's a fact some will, some wont. I simply call um good folks and worthy of my respect. FWIW

    I have to agree and I like the sheepdog concept, but that may just be the Boy Scout in me. I don't think Nutnfancy meant to insinuate that someone with a concealed cary weapon needed to be come "Vigilante Protector of the CItizens", rather thats its the mindset of the person "who is willing to do" versus the person "who is not willing to do". I personally think every good person has a certain degree of obligation to care about other people. And this isn't a gun thing, a gun is just one of many tools. But if someone is stuck in the mud are you the one sitting there going "Hey, that guy is stuck in the mud and the tow truck isnt around" or are the the prepares one with a tow rope who can spare a few minutes to help someone out? To me thats what a sheepdog is, someone who can give someone a jump or help an elderly lady get a large bag of dogfood in her car even.

    I think most people perception of a "sheepdog" is that of a vigilante and I do NOT agree with people taking on the role of law enforcement. To me, concealed carry doesnt make you any more of a citizen but most CC people are prepared in other ways too. Theres nothing wrong with helping people out so long as its within reason.

    ALex!

    My first reach is for the cell phone, if the threat is firing on folks and my conditions for the safest engagement are there. I'll intervene and do my best to end the threat for everyones sake, but only under lethal threat or direct engagement to my person. My CC weapon is for mine and my loved ones personal protection, not to play LE.

    Its a metaphor(sp?), and a label. People aren't metaphors, and can't easily be assigned a label. The closest label my close friends have for me is Black Dog, its kinda the "Left Hand Man". So as to the Term Sheepdog, its a way of saying good people wishing to help others.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    See that's my point in the threads I pointed out people were actually positing that you should take your 38 snubby and chase down the Von Marr shooter because that was your duty as a "sheep dog". What you just posted here is exactly my position so we are actually in agreement on this

    To me thats what a sheepdog is, someone who can give someone a jump or help an elderly lady get a large bag of dogfood in her car even.
    And I'm ok W/ that I would and have done that for folks before. it's just when you creep over into vigilante territory that I get nervous

    So Treo is the Sheepdog of Sheepdogs now?

    Obviously there may be some people that take things to extreme, but if you've lurked around gun forums long enough (only 44 posts in a year?), you'd know that being a sheepdog is more of a mindset that you'll step up when/if needed, not that you run off vigilante style.

    I'm a big fan of Nutnfancy. His videos are first rate and have dedication to the project is incredible. For anyone who is just discovering him, dig through his catalog a bit, he discusses/reviews a large variety of tactical and outdoor products.

    I love when he goes to gun shops and bust's jokes about stuff being overpriced. It's pretty funny.

    I love the AK and AR series he does. It's pretty spot one IMHO.

    ive been watching his videos for a couple months now, i love em! I usually get a couple in right before bed. nothing bad about the guy but sometimes his on and on and on puts me right to sleep! lol. He just did a review on a 5.11 tac vest that was very cool. thinkin of gettin one and using it for just being outdoors. think that would be good when im out riding 4 wheelers and wanna pack a pistol and/or rifle. or out bunny or squeeky bashing. hate holding my pistol on my hip when i have to sit in the dirt! Thanks NUTIN!

    sorry for rezing old thread but i had to share!
