Does being shot by an idiot count?
This is a discussion on Self Defense shootout Poll...ever been in one? within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Self Defense shootout Poll...ever been in one? Nope. And the longer I live the more I try to up the odds against it happening....

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
When I was 27, I shot multiply rounds from a 12 ga. at a group of people, and I was trying my best to hit them. Thankfully (or unfortunately depending on your point of view), they were a tad out of range. And of course, Viet Nam doesn't count. I have no idea if I hit anyone, but I'm pretty sure I got a couple of Water Buffaloes.

No but came close to a few, while working in my former job in NYC years ago( Personel Protection & Armed currier work )
I don't ever want to be in a firefight, people get killed in them. My doctor already complains about all my other medical problems he would never stop whining if I got killed.
Does one with the wife count.....
Not me, have had to draw my pistol twice, but did not fire.....

quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Been in some great firefights, killed alot and been killed a few times!!! Paintball is a great sport...lol But never had to draw my weapon on anyone thank God. Have had it outside investigating a bump in the night once though.
Thankfully no, hopefully never. I wish the same for all of you.

I don't imagine anyone who's been in one are going to respond to your poll....
Ok.... I'll bite....... why would it matter if they did respond? It's more about the poll...... the info would be nice cause I like stuff like that for comparison, but not required for the poll.
It's about what I expected so far for stats, and thanks to those who HAVE voted! I'll make my own interpitation of the gathered data and post it in the thread after a maybe two weeks? Thanks again all!

Ever wonder why massacres never happen at a gun range??
