    CCW in Horror Films

    I was thinking the other day about how short some horror movies would be if the "victims" were CCW carriers.
    This excludes the supernatural, aliens and the monsters.

    Psycho ... Crazy man vs. 9mm? Done. (This is a tribute to those who carry in the shower)
    Scream ... man in mask with knife vs. .40 S&W. Series over at Scream 1
    I Know What You Did Last Summer ... Fishing hook vs. .45? over.
    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre ... Chainsaw vs .357? no contest.

    Am I missing any?

    Well, you wouldn't have much of a movie then.

    Though I will admit, I'm always thinking, if you had a firearm on your person or in your home, you wouldn't be in this pickle.

    Then again, I would crack up if a movie built up to the suspenseful "gotcha" scene, then abruptly ended with a bang. Ha!

    Have you seen the movie Vacancy where the people have a hole in the bathroom under the rug where they get into the room and kill people. I was talking to my girlfriend and told her "What guy dosnt carry a knife even a small 3 inch one" Because theres a scene where the guy comes out of the floor and they scream in horrow, my girlfriend said why not break the mirror and use a sharp peice to stab the guy.

    My first thought

    "EXACTLY!!"

    This got me thinking of an episode of the last season of "24." When they are trying to rescue the president of the IRK (and seconds counted as they thought he was going to be executed literally any second), Bauer takes out a bad guy then wastes almost a minute trying to disable his weapon. I was thinking the whole time "just stick it in your waistband and keep moving!"

    I did have a script for my version of "The South Carolina Chain Saw Massacre." Here it is, in it's entirity:

    (Chain saw wielding bad guy appears, revs chain saw).
    Hero: Oh boy. Here we go. (Draws weapon and fires 5 shots center mass)

    Roll end credits.

    One of the first practical things I learned about self defense was that in the right circumstances, anything can be used as a weapon. If I can reach it, I can use it to cut, smash, poke, slice, or otherwise maim. I find myself analyzing those things in movies all the time. But, again, it wouldn't be very exciting if those characters actually listened to our advice!

    Panic room: Home invaders vs. 12-gauge = over
    SAW: SA + .40 vs. creepy guy = series over
    Dawn of the Dead: .40 + big Jeep vs. zombies = home + 12-gauge - winner TBD

    How about the episode of 'High Incident' when the home invasion crew hit a stash house of gunrunners...that ended well for both sides.

    Horror flicks are fiction...

    Fiction...

    I'd be terrible in a horror flick.

    Especially one about a guy traveling who stops at a motel.

    They would have the hidden camera on in the motel room as they were messing with my car...and when they see me pull out a power bar, bottle of water and snap togther the AR which was in my suitcase, load it and put 2 spare mags on the bed next to it, laying out the body armor, 2 more glock mags and a spare pistol, then turn on the TV to watch Food Network before crashing to go to sleep...

    The guys who were gonna mess with the sucker in room 20 end up repairing the car, installing a new timing belt, changing the transmission fluid and putting new tires on the car.

    All in order to make sure that I don't stick around more than I have to.

    When the I wake up, take the AR into the bathroom for a fast shower (its a motel, you would too...) then put everything away and go to pay the bill, I find "It's covered..."

    Ya know, anytime I see stuff like that on TV, "mostly in the news though" I do kinda say to myself that, that would most likely have had a different outcome if the person had been armed.. Kinda sad in a lot of cases, but ya can't carry the weight of the world around on one's shoulder's for very long... I just hope that when others see the carnage that can and does take place out there, they wise up and take the necessary precaution to either arm themselves, or avoid similar situations at a minimum..

    Ya'll got it all wrong. We're talkin' hollywood here. Any movie which features a character described as a person who legally carries a concealed firearm would portray that character as the mass-murdering, unstoppable, deviant villian and would probably have it happen in a school so they could really get their idea across.
