Damn, missed another fun thread......
I have a lot of experience, and I stated what it did not include. It has also never included having to use a gun to stop anything, although there have been times when other were acting badly and my presence (on my property) with a shotgun (simply standing there watching the show) stopped the bad acting... If I had had the issues you described I would certainly reflect on what I could do differently to insure they did not occur a second, or more times. But that's just me and the way I do things. Others continue to pick the scabs off of cuts and scrapes. I suppose it serves a purpose for them....So what exactly is your experience?
The fact that I didn't have a round chambered when the first attack happened, and that I said that I was backing up and defending myself should indicate that I was not being abrasive or antagonistic, nor did I reach for my gun right away.
Some people don't seem to understand that just because they have never had uncontrolled things happen to them it doesn't mean that they don't happen. Most often victims haven't done anything at all to incite or encourage a crazy person's raging attack, it just happens. I doubt if anybody would say that the victims of 9/11 did anything to force the terrorists to fly a plane in to their buildings.
I'm not sure it's in there Mike. My statements were " I do understand though that there are those who, by their nature, seem to solicit an unpleasant response in others while behaving in their normal way... Those people should probably have a higher degree of concern about their readiness for self protection.", and " I'm saying that perhaps people with overly abrasive personalities attract circumstances which more often require self defense."I still missed the part in the thread where those who carry in condition one do so out of neccessity due to their abrasive personalities requiring them to be extra cautious.
I think he’s saying, if you’re an *******, you’re more likely going to find the need to carry ready to fire than a nice guy minding his own business. I 100% agree with that, however, there are others on here that might look like easy targets. Sometimes, just being older is enough.While I agree that those who go out looking for trouble are more likely to find it, I was also not able to make the connection with that and the topic of the thread. I have been sort of trying to figure out where the thread went south.
I am noticing that those (like myself) who may not chamber are being ridiculed by "some" who disagree, or so it seems.
