And typically, the folks at the range are 80% male, and probably (75% of the time), the female is just dragged along to stand by and watch. It's unusual to see a female shooting, which is very sad.

I've personally taken several women friends to the range and taught them how to use a weapon, and by the end of the tutorial, these women are ECSTATIC. One even took home her target and framed it, for all her liberal friends to see!

There are few things as empowering for women as realizing that they don't to play the part of the victim anymore.



Very good point. If I were queen of world, I'd dope slap every woman I see, walking along in a downtown area with every single point of her moderate IQ focused on her *&^% cell phone. Women, more so than men, really have a vested interest in looking up and scanning the horizon for possible threats.

I think the most egregious consequence of this "modern technological age" is that we've raised a generation of women that are just clueless to the world around them, and have lost the inherent ability to pay attention to their intuitive sense, and be alert to the world around them.

Below is the picture mentioned above. My young friend was so proud of learning how to shoot, she took the target home and had it framed!!
Thanks for being a good steward of the Second Amendment!!!!

Women shooters are on the rise, btw. We need more women like you to introduce them to the sport.

That same guy always qualifies expert and shoots a minimum of 200-400 a week for practice. I'll see your chrome Jennings J-22 that you most likely never fired with two GLOCKs and a guy who isn't afraid of The Crucible.


Yeah, better drop the Saturday night special son/s......(17-20) if you know what is good for ya!
Found the link- My CCW Shooting AAR--Now with More Graphic Pics on pg 29 & 30 - AR15.COM

It's an interesting read on how the guy handled himself and everything that went on afterwards.

On ARF no less, how appropriate. I wouldn't have played grabass with the perp like he did. He would have been dead before he hit the floor! Hiding your weapon.....really? Are you gonna shoot or not!!

Call it what you will, I see it as he was second guessing whether or not he had it in him to waste somebody. Anyone else would have drawn and fired.....

I'll really do it, don't make me, I'll do it.....don't make me!


BANG!!! MF!!

It was a good thing I left.......I'll say that much. I had two handguns, 3 extra high cap mags and two tactical knives with me.


The hoods and their chrome Jennings J-22 would have had a big problem.......no doubt....do you copy that?

No need to shiver, what needs to be done is always done. Just got off the phone with a LEO and he is stopping by to have me work on his GLOCK in less than an hour. He's the firearms instructor, so he's no dummy. Could have called anyone, he doesn't /didn't......he know who knows their "ship".....


Oohrah!!

Sorry,, it took me a could let rounds to fully decide to answer this thread.

A few years ago I had an intruder. I was setting watching TV in my motorhome. Had somebody slowly turn my door handle and open my door. The first thing thru the door was a pistol. I double tapped him.

So dont tell me what you can and can't do. Don't tell me about lawsuits. I've been there and done that.

Whoa. Where was this? I was hunting last weekend and I mean I was wayyyyy in the bush. Middle of the night a rig comes flying in. I grabbed the glock and jumped out the back of the truck. It turns out just drunks looking for a place to camp. I guess they were too scared to camp by themselves. It was hard to get back to sleep after that. When I split at 4 am I made much noise as possible.

I believe less than half of the bragging in this thread... but I believe the post above 100%.

I've been involved with internet forums for a long time; well over two decades (remember the old BBS system?). Two truths remain constant:
1. People elevate their own capabilities on the internet. I'm amazed at the number of people who can shoot sub-MOA groups, are black belts in multiple martial arts, and who are capable of killing other humans with the flick of a thumb. Anyone can type.
2. Anyone who has truly "been there and done that" never brags about it or celebrates doing it. Shooting another human, even a criminal trying to cause deadly harm to you or someone else, is never a good thing. It is nothing like in the movies. Starting with the actual horror of a death caused by your actions, followed by the inevitable police interrogation and possible lawsuit from the "victim's" kin folk. It may be necessary, but it is never good. Anyone who says otherwise is has either never done it or is a sociopath.
