Your best bet, in the wider topic of personal defense, is to do everything you can to keep from having to pull a gun in the first place and IMO, that includes not even owning a gun in the first place.
However, in the event my house is being broken into by armed intruders, I'd rather have a gun, and shoot to kill. Fortunately, I live in an extremely low crime area, where there hasn't been an incident above a noise disturbance in over a year, so I hope to never have to be in that situation. But you never know.

There is no shortage of gun ranges in the Las Vegas valley LOL. That's very good advice.

Horrible lawyer.

Re-read.

1) I considered buying rock salt loads. I'm an excellent shot and know what happens when you shoot something center mass with a 12-gauge. Rock salt will knock them down and keep them down long enough for the cops to clean up the mess.

2) Lawyer said, "Oh HELL no." Reasoning: merely wounding a home intruder sets the homeowner up for possible legal action by the intruder. Lawyer's advice: If someone has broken into your house and means to do you harm, shoot him dead, first shot. Perhaps more physical mess but much less legal mess that way.

And for that same reason, I wouldn't shoot an intruder with a taser. Intruders at Casa ScoopLV are getting a dirt nap for their troubles.


NOBODY IS SUGGESTING KILLING SOMEONE AFTER THEY ARE DOWN. Raiderman read it and comprehended it. Why can't you?

Look at Ted Nugent, I don't see cons exclaiming that he should shut his mouth & just play music. I wonder why that is?

What? How come that wise counsel does not apply to George Zimmerman in your eyes?

You're being very patient with your explanations, but you're wasting your time.

But he lit up Martin with his gun. Seems like he understood it quite well.

LMAO! You cannot even remember.comprehend what you said a few posts ago. This is hilarious!

Your exact words:

How the heck does that apply to GZ? Instead of listening to the police dispatcher to STAY IN HIS CAR AND DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CONFRONT TM, he got out and followed TM instead of staying put ("do everything you can to keep from having to pull a gun in the first place") and he owned, and furthermore, carried guns while out in public ("that includes not even owning a gun in the first place").

I also like your use of the words "heaters" and "lit up." Were you a young man in Al Capone's heyday?
