Not very good situational or operational awareness.
    Well there are always wannabees who think because they play with 'guns' they are GTG. Not looking at the hand but the face. I don't suspect every little girl I see, but then again I don't recite the stats on who might statistically be a threat when out and about.

    But I do realise some never beens like to walk around pretending some fantasy world situation is on going.

    You can't take safety too seriously. Whenever somebody knocks on my door, our family goes into our battlestations. I throw on my kevlar vest and grab my SKS with bananan clip - 7.62x39 locked and loaded. My wife gets the chainsaw and stands behind the door as I open it, with her hand on the start cord. My daughter has a collection of kitchen knifes, razor sharpened with diamond cutting blades, she can dual wield meat cleavers and chop an intruder's head off in one stroke. My chihuahua is always ready in her battle garb with snout scream barking at 140db to flash bang the intruder's ears.

    The other day the lawn people showed up and we unfortunately had to take them out. I opened the door and saw that he was a Mexican, instinctively we all fired immediately. My bullets cut him down, daughter decapitated him and wife dismembered what was left with the chainsaw. His wife in the Blazer tried to get away but we got her with our RPG. We feel kind of bad but... this is a dangerous world and we had to do what we had to do to keep our family safe.

    Seriously, you guys that think your hysterical reactions to a girl scout or otherwise at the door are reasonable, you either need to be on medication or move to a safer neighborhood.

    Of course it is true. There is nothing like having a gun to make you paranoid as hell. I've seen it dozens of times.

    Well, yeah. Do-si-dos are peanut laced and therefor deadly weapons.

    Peanuts are killers.

    Makes perfect sense.

    I suspect pretty much EVERYONE I see. I don't trust more than a handful of people on the entire planet and they're all people who know better than showing up unanounced at my home.

    Nope. Nor would I fire a warning shot when I have the gun. The first indication they're going to have that something is wrong at their end is the burning sensation of the bullet wound or the blade in their chest.

    I train with and use various blades I myself so I don't have a strong preference. I keep a shikomizue fitted blade by the door with a collection of wood staffs. I collect antique weapons of all types and the exquisite craftsmanship of the Japanese makes a fine display piece that go well with the décor of the front door area. It blends in nicely with the exotic wood staffs there. Its a bit more flexible to use and is not revealed to be a lethal weapon until its lethality is needed.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    I'd say it a bit differently, I have worked with hundreds of students learning the proper use of firearms, shot with hundreds of competition shooters. I'd say a firearm doesn't make you paranoid, but so many fearful, paranoid people do want to own firearms. Fear ridden and deadly force isn't a good mix.
