    When I used to fight in a medieval combat group I used a 32" longsword, so the broadsword actually feels better to me. The "range" for it is more natural for me than a shortsword or long dagger would be. The additional weight is also something I like.

I'm sorry, but my safety is much more important than someone who shows up unanounced getting a little shaken up by it. Thankfully I'm in a secured condo building now, so there are rarely people ringing our bell.

    How in the hell can a man be charged with assault standing in his own house and everyone else outside? Only in liberal moonbat country.

    Interesting. When I used to shoot competitively on a regular basis, one of our favorite "tricks" to play on shooters was to put a dress and wig on a "Threat" target right around the corner of a shooting position. Either that or put a "Threat" target down more at child's height. Despite all having the opportunity to walk through the course of fire before shooting it, there were almost always at least 50% of the shooters who would hesitate or completely miss the "female/child" targets. Not very good situational or operational awareness.

    It is WISER not to let them know you are home, remember the Clutter's?

    The more I read some 'reasons' for being ahhhh 'wary' of answering your door in daylight the more I recall that "cowering in the basement, clutching a 'gun' and a Bible" and tend to believe it is a lot truer than some want to believe....

    You hate Girl Scouts? That is very telling. Are you sure you just aren't just a skinflint?
