Why. because he shoots about 10,000 rounds a year
    Excellent. The two rounds, double tap, controlled pairs etc... is also a good training tool for him.

    Bullets don't always work the way you would like. Multiple hits up close are a must. He doesn't need to just hit. He needs to hit faster than the BG does, and there is a good chance, the BG will hit at close range. So the question becomes "How fast can he hit?"

    I can't tell you how exactly how many rounds it will take to put the BG down in his next future gun fight. I can tell you it will most likely be more than one. Make him train for it.

    i have shot someone in a mugging

    I have studied over 5000 shootings-In a prior legal job I represented an insurance company that covered several of the largest law enforcement agencies in my area. I handled cases involving a cop who shot a guy who worked with him fatally-while he claimed it was self defense (the other guy flicked a knife at him as a joke) the evidence suggested the cop had two guns and had unloaded one and got confused and fired the loaded revolver accidentally

    I have forgotten more about fatal and near fatal shootings than 99 percent of the cops in this country

    It is a good idea, not only criminals may have guns.

I heard him comment to his buddy "yup, he's dead" (I wanted to shout at him "so are a whole lotta inocent bystanders")... I then watched him reload, holster his trusty sidearm, and swagger out of the range.

    Make no mistake, I fully support the shall issue, but I would like to see some kind of qualification standard.

    Most of the civilian gun-packers I know are well-trained and quite accurate. I would know, I've spent a lot of time working with and training such people. Actually I'd go so far as to say that the average CCW citizen probably isn't any worse at gunhandling than the average cop. (I'd know that too, being an ex-cop.)

    I've taken women who could barely hit the broadside of a barn even if you give them 5 minutes to aim; given them an hour or two of training, and watched them put 15 rounds into an 8" group in the middle of the K-zone at 15 yards. Learning to use a gun reasonably well isn't THAT hard. Some people act as if it takes a 4 year degree to use a gun in self-defense.... um no. An afternoon of good training can put you ahead of 90% of the BG's, especially if it includes awareness/crime prevention and tactical judgement.

    If you want to search for an historical precedent, for several hundred years, when the longbow was a crucial arm in England's armies, archery butts were set up in every village and the men were required to practice and compete.

    I don't think we'll ever get everyone to agree on the training issue.


    To me....no training time - no Glock 9

    Sure, I'd like for everyone to take some basic training in gun safety and gun handling, if they're going to own a gun. Goodness knows I've seen enough allegedly-trained cops who were crappy unsafe gun handlers. The problem with this is that if you make it LAW, you give the government another "choke point" to restrict or potentially eliminate gun ownership for the masses. If the government gets to "set" the amount of training, how much it will cost, what kind of tests you must pass, and so on... they can make it damned hard for Joe Average to own a gun. Certain jurisdictions like D.C. and Chicago have made it plain they'd jump on any chance to keep citizens disarmed, and I'd prefer not to trust government with that much power over a vital Constitutional right.

    You cannot require people to pass a test before they can exercise a right - any right, not just the right to arms - without violating the Constitution.

    There are plenty of people I'd love to see pass a test demonstrating they could form a coherent thought before they were able to exercise their right to free speech...but, alas...

    Re: Texas Senate approves guns in college classrooms

    I'll have to disagree with the governor on this because as a college student myself I don't feel any safer than I was before when I WAS on campus in fact I know feel less save because now you don't know when you'll get shot by an stupid college kid welding a gun or that went "accidentally went off in the holster."


    Turtle is wrong again! My Aunt and I work with criminals so does
    My dad in fact is a fire Marshall and is a police officer and in fact they both don't carry their guns all the time.. Only when they think its necessary like for example when someone called my home saying "he found my cellphone" after I had forgotten my purse at the water burger near Galveston, Texas they stole the items in question from my purse idiotically thought they could rob him and me again but lets just say my daddy took care of the person who stole from his little girl. I love my dad ^^.

    Um>..........< There are idiots like that on the right side as well Turtle lets just say I'm not like that idiotic woman. I understand the need for guns but I also think that their should be some controls on it. Like they should have a test and at least know not to do this type of idiotic move.




    And apparently a small gun was shot in this one.
