1st I worked 18/12 hours got home at about 2:30 am; and when I opened my front door the wife had a shotgun aimed at my head!<quoted text>
how many times have you or Ari,'used' a gun, to protect your family or property? If the answer is 'zero', then it follows that you have never 'needed' a gun to protect your family or property. And it follows that you have never 'needed' a gun.
I concede that Ari 'needs' a gun to make his thing look bigger, but still.....
She said someone had just tried to push the door in, I took my Colt from my holster and went back out the front and went around the house to find a man trying to get in the back! I chambered a round and told him I had a gun aimed at his head and he bolted!
Second time, I was taking a friend to the bus station at night, as we approached a traffic light (was red) the light changed green and a car that was stopped started flashing break lights and head lights, as I got closer I saw two men. One was in the drivers door trying to pull a women from the seat (she was buckled in), another was in the passengers side going through the glove box.
I jumped from my truck with my Colt in hand and placed the barrel to the 1st mans temple, he slowly backed away, I then saw a 3rd man (never saw him till he ran!) running away, and the second man raised his hands backed away turned and ran. The poor little woman never said a single word but nearly ran over my foot as she floored it and drove away!
Two more times I have pulled my weapon in defense, only once have I had to fire it. A .45 tends to change peoples mind quickly. I will only pull it from the holster if I may need to use it, I will and I have. I would not call any of them cowards...I would call them smart and alive, because they did not push the issue. The one time I used it the man did live, but after a lot of surgery!
