    Wow, you must have a vast arsenal of guns.
    Or else a very small home.

    Alternative phrasing: you're wrong.

    Not really, no, it doesn't.

    Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should.

    We're all talking about opinions here so how could any of us be wrong?

    You can use an AR15 for home protection, but you shouldn't due to over penetration. Hollow points would be much better. That's the same thing.

    That is, in all likelihood, what he means. Maybe he carries a Ruger(.380) LCP.


    p.s., There is no such thing as a "small gun" that has the capability to kill.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I should have said "compact"

    There are a lot of dead people, shot with .22s and .380s, who would disagree with you there. A .38 snub is a small gun and can certain kill with correct shot placement.

    Having said that, I favor a .38+P or 9mm as a minimum and prefer calibers that start with .40; I have a .40 compact pocket gun that has served me well.

    In my state, if someone breaks into your house you have the legal right to shoot them dead, and normally the police won't even take you downtown afterward if it looks like a rightous shoot.

    If someone breaks into my house, they've pretty much signed their death warrant. I have no notion of asking them their intentions or waiting to ascertain whether they mean me harm...the B&E is sufficient. Waiting to see what they really want is a good way to get your loved ones killed.

    I live my life within arm's reach of a gun, at home or away, usually a pistol though I have rifles and shotguns also. I've seen the aftermath of too many violent crimes to trust to the benevolence of my fellow man and the forebearance of reptiles, let alone to luck.

    G.
    I don't disagree with you at all. Please re-read my post.

    I have a very nice Ruger (380) LCP. I like it. But for my ultimate home defense, other than my attitude, I have a Remington 20 inch barrel pump 12 guage shotgun loaded with seven rounds of flechettes. I am a Marine and believe fully in the over use of extreme force......if force is to be used at all.

    I like my 12-gauge too, and my assault rifles. Given a few seconds to pop open the gunsafe, that's what I'd go for to repel home invaders. (Overpenetration doesn't worry me much, I live out in the woods.) Pistols are handy, though, because they're handy. I can carry a compact 9 or .40 on me all the time...but for some reason people get excited when I go to Wal-Mart with an M4 on my shoulder.

    Not to start an argument, but your statement was:

    If you were getting philosophical and meant "guns don't kill, people do", okay then. It sounded literally like you were saying you can't kill someone with a .380ACP, which is patently erroneous.

    Don't get me wrong, a .380 isn't much of a weapon and I don't care for anything smaller than a .38sp+P Hydroshock, but you can kill someone with small caliber pistols.

    How did I misunderstand you, then?
