That 'Guns' kill people. Heck, so does a stainless steel ball point pen.
This is a discussion on most retarded things someone has said to you about guns.... within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; 1. i own 2 savage 17hmr's... i was told a 17hmr cannot kill a human at 100 yards since the bullet will be like a ...
1. i own 2 savage 17hmr's... i was told a 17hmr cannot kill a human at 100 yards since the bullet will be like a pebble tossed at you. Lol.
2. 9mm is tooweak for self defense. 45 + cal. is the way to go.
3. 50 ae desert eagle is the right choice to conceal. Lol.
I don't need to train any farther as I have met the state requirments.
I don't need to practice any further than 7 yards because most gunfights occur within that distance.
I don't need to carry extra ammunition because the statistics say less than three rounds are fired in a gunfight.
I don't need to or I do not feel comfortable with a round in the chamber and I will simply use the Modified Israeli Draw that I saw on Youtube. It works for them.
The bad guys will flee the moment they see my gun.
Wearing a 5.11 vest will cause me to be targeted first in the event of a crime because it just screams "He is carrying a gun".
OC'ing will not get me targeted first but will deter the crime from ever being committed.
Unless you carry, "X" in caliber "X" you are not going to survive a lethal force encounter because instructor "X" says so.
A 9mm round, or several 9mm rounds, to the face or chest of an adversary will not deter them simply because it is a 9mm.
According to a study from the "Armed Citizen" section of American Rifleman a .22 will suffice 86.98768969% percent of the time in a SD situation.
From the same article: Proper and safe gun handling are more important than being able to shoot the firearm accurately. Justification: You handle it more than you shoot it.
Learn to shoot better than a Navy Seal or a SWAT cop.
Printing is going to happen no matter what just do it no one will notice.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

Had my CCW SR9c on me as we were driving to Wal Mart so I could buy some new "carry shirts" and as we're going down the road, my wife asks me if it's loaded! WHAT THE...??? I ask her what good is it to carry it around unloaded? What am I going to do, BEAT the guy to death with it??? Looks like some more training around the house is required. Don't tell her I posted this or I'll be fearing for my life!

Why do you carry a gun?
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

I wish I had something witty/funny to relay but I don't. Only my GF and two close friends know I carry. Is funny reading some of these though.
