As far as your remark: "Carrying a gun, is a DRAG!"
Where I go! ( remote areas, border areas, etc.)
It is a life saving Necessity
1..Been shot at
2..I have been threatened, with a gun, twice !
The only reason I am able to sit here, at this keyboard is:
I was carrying a weapon !
Some DRAG! HUH! ?
In the first case, I returned fire with my 10 shot
, 'Scoped, Semi-auto '06 !
In which case, I, hand/reload, to near .300 mag
I climbed up to the ridge, to see if the "shooter" was hit or still there !
Seems like after he rec'd 10 "Quick" rds in return..
All shooting STOPPED!
Never seen, "hide nor hair" of that dude!
In the other two cases, I was accosted, once in camp and once on the trail.
Who's attitude was one of "You'll do what I want/say or else!"
You should have seen how, THAT! Atittude changed,
when I brushed back my jacket and revealed a stub nosed .44 Mag.!
Once of those "Dudes" was a "US Park Ranger" ..
one of those attitudes !
Like, "I'm the law (GOD!) you do as I say" !
Even the guys who were in camp, later remarked at how fast THAT HOLIER THAN THOU
attitude changed, when he saw the I was also "Carrying Heat"...BIG!
His little 9mm
was FAR! out classed by my/the MUCH BIGGER, 240 gr., .44 MAG!
Would I have used my weapon, in either case?
Let me just say, I have 30 yrs in the military ...
Months in direct combat !
As a nasty old Jungle Fight'n Marine Grunt !
Who has meet the enemy, who I repected, a LOT! More, more than That Public Servant!
I think SO! (H---! I know! SO!)
Would you want a partner, as any other kind?Linkback:
