And that’s assuming he got by my two German Shepherds who will tear anyone to pieces if not invited into my property.

I disagree. Consider the following scenario:

You are going out to meet an unknown. He intends to do you in. There are 4 possible results to this.

Condition 4: He attacks, you are unprepared for his attack, he gets you.

Condition 3: He attacks, you defend, he may or may not get you.

Condition 2: He attacks and you respond offensively.

Condition 1: It's a strike mission, you were out to get him.

Conclusion: In any engagement with an unknown, response will be set at Condition 2 or Condition 1. Why? It can be assumed that someone ready for fatal conclusions is ready for someone who won't defend or will only defend. He may not be ready for someone who is just as willing to kill as he is.

I could hear the disappointment in his voice, she's gone again, his mind questioning why.



Oh, well! Like it has been said ............. ROMANA (II): One for casual, one for best.


So how about your family?
WHAT?

I have no clue what you are asking or saying?

That is solidly none of your business and why should it matter to you if you aren't paying for them?

Just because you don't understand means nothing.

Ok Ill try to enlighten you a tad.

Why more than 1 or 2 pistols?
1. Target and training pistol, shoots 22 long rifle.

2. Personal carry compact 9mm. Self defense

3. Competition pistol 1911

Rifles.
1. Plinker and training rifle for kids. 22 long rifle

2. Deer hunting rifle. 30-06

3. Elk and moose rifle for hunting in places like Wyoming or Alaska 300 ultra

4. Varmint rifle. 22-250. hunting woodchucks and prairie dogs.

Shot guns.
1. Field grade for small game hunting like rabbits, grouse, pheasants , turkeys

2. Skeet gun or trap gun. for shooting clay birds.

Hope this has answered your question.

So if someone breaks in you’ll sit them down and give them a good talking to? Yep, nothing else deters violence like a tongue lashing. (Will you offer them tea as well?)

Seriously, can you tell us more? I’ve never heard of such a thing.

Yes in a Utopia all the above will work. Like Boxer saying all the police have to do is put their guns down and the bad guys will too. Hahahaha

I'm sorry but your post is a bit comical. I have never met a bully that could or would be reasoned with. The same is true of most thugs. Do you honestly believe that Michael Brown would have been intimidated by a loud whistle? He attacked a police officer with no concern about consequences. All your measures work great with rational reasonable people.. Dialog techniques? lmao.

Yeah I want to know more as well.

Listen I know you were intent upon robbery, maybe a touch of rape and likely a fantasy of vandalism while you are here, but can we talk about it first? I can see that you are feeling tense. Let's have a sip of tea together, shall we?

So tell me about your childhood. Did you feel loved?

LMAO

You should put a sign in your front yard that says that. That should probably stop the armed intruders and keep you safer. Advertising a place as a gun-free zone. What a great idea. Why haven't we thought of that sooner??!

Maybe Travis has a rock or a knife or a hammer. We are constantly told that you don't need a gun to kill somebody because guns are just a "tool" like these other items.
