    When have you been attacked where you needed that large a clip? For it to be reasonable, doesn't have to be a reasonable expectation of that kind of fire fight?

    Yeah, tough talk. I get it. However, not having them invade in the first place is a better and more effective strategy.

    well I might only need 10K in coverage for a traffic accident but I prefer having much higher coverage just in case

    Your posts are bordering on playing dumb in that passive-aggressive attack on gun rights again. Its better to have too many rounds and only need to shoot once versus having the limits anti gun assholes in politics have imposed and then have one more attacker than you have bullets

    I guess you want to avoid dealing with the fact that if our cops dealing with the same criminals we might have to deal with have determined that X amount of rounds is proper, that's a good number for the rest of us in that area to use

    you seem to believe that those of us who have CCW licenses are somehow less trustworthy than cops even though there is no evidence to support that hysteria

    That's why I found this whole "guns need to stand up again the US government and the military" type of talk a little silly.

    Its not that simple as all of the government versus all of the people.

    And An Armed Citizenry IS The Strategy

    Mass Killings Are Committed In 'Gun Free Zones'

    Like Schools, Malls And Virginia Tech
    All 'Gun Free Zones'

    'Gun Free Zone' Signs Say:
    Hey, Psycho !!
    Here's Your Victims...

    Now, Show Me Were It Ain't
    Fake Airborn

    Hey, Maybe I'll Pretend I'm 101st
    Or Paste A Bronze Star With Clusters & A Purple Heart
    Couple Of Gold Bars On My Collar, Hell Oak Leaves !!

    more of the passive aggressive idiocy

    its best not to get into accidents on the highway but if you do-its better to have a well built car than a poorly constructed one

    and what is funny is in the next week or so you will claim you aren't anti gun yet your thread of posts demonstrate that you constantly question why anyone would need a gun

    Why do you spend so much time questioning why other people want guns

    we get it-you don't like them-then don't own one

    you really have no business or expertise in telling me what I need

    Your obvious logic will be lost on anti-gun people. Why shouldn't the same gun restrictions be put on police if those restrictions still allow sufficient firearms to defend yourself and others?
