    I really don't like the guy, but he makes a point...

    If it's really open division though, isn't that rifles, and just how far do you go toward being well heeled in public just now?

    Seems everybody has to decide their own threat level, based on their own circumstances, and take the chance that they may win the lottery on being undergunned somewize. Best option may be to just do your best to avoid that venue..., I travel less and less personally, but some people obviously don't have that option or want it.

    I have an LCP, it is a little crappy pistol, no doubt, and I do sometimes stuff it in my pocket when I go to my little town, but I carry my P365 and a spare mag when I go to the big city; in either case I have a 5906 in my console.

    Maybe I should carry a 2nd spare P365 mag, but I really don't feel undergunned carrying the P365 especially compared to my LCP, at least for now, where I travel.

    It may be true that criminals are not proficient but from what I have seen at literally scores of ranges across the country (LE & private ranges) it is often the legitimate firearms owners who are not proficient with a firearm nor with tactics.

    The thing to remember about the 'average' member of any group is that half the group is, by definition, crappier than the average. So I try never to be the "average" gun owner or the "average" driver or the "average" member of the public. Success varies, but some things (like building proficiency with your firearm) are easy to address and improve.

    I think everyone has certain scenarios in mind, but



    Imagine if I were a customer in the bank during the Heat bank heist; would it matter how big a pistol or how many mags I had on me?

    On the other hand, having taken some defensive pistol classes has taught me how much ammo I can burn through on just two threats. I was surprised how often I found myself holding an empty gun during class drills. There are enough shooting videos available online to convince me that a couple of 9mm rounds won't guarantee stopping the bad guy from hurting me or my family.

    The footage he uses proves the old adage, “Sometimes you get the test before the lesson.”

    A firearm is a tool. Your BRAIN keeps you out of trouble. Carrying or not carrying a firearm, keeping your head out of your donut and watching what is going on around you will help you avoid 99.9% of trouble. Walking around needing slits cut in your belly to see out ain’t no way to live.

    I usually click off his commentary on officer involved stuff. Walk a mile in the moccasins first, beotch.

    From a recent news report were the good guy had an 'open division' gun that held 12 or more rounds. "A Chickasha, Oklahoma, homeowner fired at least a dozen rounds at a home intruder, killing him."

    The guy in CO that took down a mass murderer armed with an AR amd a pistol did it with his bare hands, then disarmed the criminal and started pistol whipping him.
