    No wonder I had to be fitted for hearing aids. I never heard them do any of that.

    It's the one I can't imagine that I'm most worried about!

    Maybe that's why my wife tells me "you worry about nothing."

    Yes, but when talking to the children, I think it’s best to stick with your story about the original remedy.

    I used to work on a site out on the East edge of town (it's in town now) that was mostly undeveloped land. There was a family of foxes living on site who were very friendly.



    I've run into dozens of foxes at work and I've never had one behave remotely aggressively.

    Prepare and train for whatever you want, whatever you think prudent.

    But remain open minded as I've found that life has a way of showing you something you never foresaw or imagined, and it does it quickly and without warning.

    I had an incident in Detroit once , I was working security and was walking back to my place of employment when the Manager ran out and told me we had a shoplifter so I seen the guy running down the street so thinking quickly I took my wallet out and said ' Hey mister , you dropped your wallet ' , well that was all it took the guy stopped in front of a bank and as I approached him he jammed his hand in his pocket at which time I grabbed his wrist with my left hand and drew my gun out of the holster and I told him as I seen the tactical units pulling up on the sidewalk that if anything but an empty hand comes out its over for him . Thank God he pulled out an empty hand BUT he had a stolen .25 in his pocket and in his statement to the officers he was going to shoot me but I was more prepared for interacting in the situation so I got lucky and even though he was a felon on probation the judge gave him 90 days probation and when I found that out I never worked in the city again .

    Just opining from personal experience, having been through a face to face situation with a meth head holding a pistol about 12 inches from my forehead. Back then I didn't see it coming, was not prepared, and there was no carry law at the time. With some fast talking I walked away from it, along with my wife who was 9 months pregnant with our first child. And I vowed that if I were ever in a hostile situation again I'd have the ability and skill to stand my ground and protect my loved ones.

    Repeating that experience has been my main concern ever since, especially with society evolving into what it has become. Seems like a human life is now worth about $2 bucks on the streets of the city. And even less in a crowded shopping or entertainment area.

    My situational radar pegged the meter after that experience and it hasn't changed much since. I'm now 24 years into my license to carry. Over a decade ago we moved away from the urban cesspool to acreage in the country. People out here all have livestock and all own firearms. It's common to hear target practice in the area on weekends when the weather is nice. Our perimeter is several hundred yards radius and the only thing that comes around is an occasional critter. But when we go into town for supplies and commodities my radar is on and turned up all the way.

    I had two "gentlemen" try to rob me and they said if I did not give them my wallet they were going to kill me. That was before Texas where I lived at the time allowed Concealed Carry. My wife at the time was a Sheriff's Deputy. It was midnight and I carried my just legal Remington 870 short barreled 12 gauge. I turned on them racking a 2 3/4" 00 buck into the chamber and to make a long story short they decided they had an extremely pressing need to be any where but in front of my muzzle. I went inside and called in a description of them and their car though I could not get the plate.

    They were not very intelligent robbers because the next week, the same two tried a home invasion in my apartment complex at 2 am and of all the apartments to pick they hit an off duty male deputy. This time they came armed so he buried one and his fellow deputies caught the other one about a 1/4 mile away. It's like Dirty Says; A man has to know his limitations. Those two sure didn't.

    Now I don't know if it is still the same way in Texas since I have been gone form the Lone Star State for over 15 years but at one point Texas had the After Dark Law.

    Here is a link: https://www.uslawshield.com/day-and-...lf-defense-tx/

    Remember that while you may not be criminally persecuted there is nothing to stop the family of the person you shot from suing you in Civil Court for wrongful death even if he was burglarizing, your home, car, etc. and carrying off your property. So one must think clearly what is at stake, and at risk before shooting someone. I am not saying not to. I am saying you must understand all the consequences before the day comes you have to take another's life.

    In many states mine included if it is judged a "good shoot" there is no civil penalty.

    I have two former brother-in-laws in Texas Law enforcement, as well as my former wife being a Texas Deputy when I lived in Texas, as I stated. The law did not exempt you from being sued my the perpetrator's surviving family members. That is not to say they will prevail but you will have to answer each and every lawsuit in civil court. I don't know how the laws are in other states but I would suggest people make themselves fully knowledgeable about all laws that will affect them upon the use of deadly force even in self defense. It is never cut and dried easy.
