    It's a good thing that she was going to the range to practice if she only managed to get him in the elbow from that distance. :rolleyes:

    I don't think her intentions were to severely harm someone who is only stealing a necklace.

    Some people go overboard when it comes to self-defence and end up getting charged themselves. Anyways, she did what she had to do.
     
  7. I don't know if I would shoot somebody from trying to take my necklace. Then again, you don't know what they are going to do. HEADSHOT!!! :devil:

    Some people think when they are getting attacked that they have a self-defense door open and can do whatever it takes to stop the person. In reality, you can't do whatever it takes. It has to be reasonable.

    For someone who is not on a wheelchair, shooting a gun like the lady would have led to charges.
     
  9. Couldn't she have just as easily threatened him with it instead of actually shooting? I agree it seems overboard.

    The first rule of firearm defense is that you never pull a gun on someone unless you fully intend to use it.

    Second rule: If you have to shoot, shoot to kill.

    In Oregon, we don't need guns.

    In our case, Tsu is heavily armed. She doesn't like messing up her nails with all of that messy strangling.

    She probably ran him over and then jumped on him, which was probably the true cause of death... then later strangled him.

    So you are saying that all Oregon and Texas women are fat?

    It was only relating to the article.

    The point was that your comments were in poor taste. :biggrin:

    No doubt, at 260 she had a slight advantage.

    Maybe I should take that comment out to avoid any further confusion.
     
  17. Just shows the sad state of health care in this country. Some poor guy is reduced to robbing women in his wheel chair. Reminds me of the time I shot an elephant in my pajamas.
     
  18. I am not much of a pacifist, but I am pretty against that. Shoot them in the leg or the arm, and hope you miss any arteries, when violent crime is intended (not by you).
     
  19. Any city newspaper~ Police fired 83 rounds, suspect was treated for smoke inhalation and a punctured eardrum.

    Don't ask police to be marksmen.

    You don't shoot someone unless a life is in danger and if a life is in danger you shoot to end that danger as fast and as surely as possible.
     
  20. Which is neutrilizing the threat by shooting out their legs, and perhaps arms.
     
  21. In the legs there are some major artires so you don't want to shot them in the legs.
