I would have no qualms pointing and pulling the trigger should that be necessary I have on occasion had to do the former.... it DOES send a strong message.

I also will shoot if pushed to do so. I have a strong sense of self-preversation.

I'm with ya! I don't have a problem with shooting someone if I thought I was in any danger.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Killing someone for making you angry? Good way to end up in prison for manslaughter or worse.

The threshold for the use of deadly force is quite a bit higher than that.

I see alot of "I would shoot replies" from people living in places that have governments that outlaw the means to self defense,

How many of you "shoot to kill people" own a gun or have taken the time to actually learn to be proficient.
Firearms, especially handguns take time and practice to be proficient enough to be responsible in there use.

I go to the shooting range often, and have shot a variety of guns/shotguns/ semi-auto's/ and a sniper rifle. So yes I am quite able to shove a gun in someones face that is threatening me and pull the trigger. It's me or him imo, and if he's stupid enough to attack someone he's stupid enough to get hurt for it.

Joe, with all do respect, there aren't many people who are going to stand around and wait to see if someone is a good shot. In fact 99% of people will take off at the sight of a gun and the rest will take off at the first shot fired. In fact, in the Utah concealed carry class they tell you to start shooting as soon as your gun's out of the holster. If you aim your dead. They do tell you to shoot to kill, though. If you get your gun that high and they are still there.There is also nothing in the constitution about responsible use or training or permits. I personally go to the range with my whole family and shoot. Because we enjoy it.

This, too, shall pass........

I was talking about this video the other day. I found that several of my fellow riders are packing heat when we go! I had no idea. My hubby is a licensed hand gun owner but I know he has never carried a gun on our rides.

I do not know how to shoot really-I do have excellent hand eye coordination (about the ONLY coordination that I have!) but if I did have a gun and was threatened I wouldn't hesitate to shoot. Generally when people attack someone they mean to hurt or kill them...so yeah...I would shoot to kill if I was carrying a gun. I am a pro cake decorator. Two of my fellow decorators are sweet looking ladies that carry some SERIOUS heat with them. We went to a cake function in San Antonio and hubby warned me about being careful...LOL I told him Betty and Jacque had Smith and Wesson and a Magnum. I think we were as safe as we could be.
