You're welcome to start a new thread...

Earlier someone mentioned a Home Invasion Plan, shooting a target without 100% verification OF that target, etc. These are items that involve TRAINING, sometimes of an intensive sort!


I (and others) have posted quite a bit about "home invasion" plans...

I (and other contributors to these forums) have done extensive work in the "home invasion" and "saferoom" areas. Many of us are either instructors and/or graduates of a number of different judicious use of lethal force training programs as well. Shooting without being 10001% certain of who/what your target is violates every legitimate rule for proper firearms handling/procedure in the books.

It seems that training is the major focus of what most of the people here are involved in, and training with a firearm would seem to fall into the category of "martial" arts. Maintaining a firearm without the appropriate training would seem to me like learning a kata without EVER practicing an associated bunkai.


While your statements are true, there are some people that chose to practice a Martial Art who, for whatever reason (it's a personal choice), chose not to own or learn about firearms. That is a personal choice that I can't and wouldn't disagree with. Firearms aren't for everyone.

Just a thought<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

This can be said about a number of different subjects. It happens to be vilified more when the subject is firearms. This thread was one of the first on this new forum and was started specifically because the attitude of some people is that only LEOs and government officials should have guns. A position which I am 180 degrees in opposition to.

If only the police have guns... then the criminals will just steal them from the police!

In this particular theft, not only were numerous firearms stolen, but they included "flash-bang" grenades and an HK MP5 sub-machinegun! Other reports have said that this is just the latest in a series of such thefts!

"In my area, a man carrying a sword was recently shot by the police for refusing to put down the sword"

Did he live?
