    I bet that would be really useful when a half dozen gang-bangers show up and kick your door in. ;-)

    I carry a gun on a regular basis and have for more than a dozen years. I have never worried about shooting myself during that entire time. Then again, I actually know what I'm doing; unlike the gangsters and morons like Plaxico Burress. Oops, I'm being redundant there, aren't I?

    They've got plenty of practice shooting at each other. What they don't have is very much practice utilizing tactics, aimed fire, or proper safe carry techniques to keep themselves (and others) safe.

    Yes, accidents do happen; however, they are greatly reduced when one uses proper equipment in the manner in which it was intended to be used rather than stuffing that piece down the front/rear of your pants like some hollywood action hero.

    It can be used as a bludgeoning weapon at short notice. And if you give me 5 minutes and a small pony, I'm a fairly decent jouster.

    Sorry but I don't intend to get close enough to someone to use a melee weapon. If I'm that close, I've already made major mistakes.

    Yes, accidents happen, and as a Range Safety Officer I've seen more of them than I really want to think about. You would likely be very unpleasantly shocked to see the number of gun owners and shooters who get as much of their "training" from "Southland" as they do from accredited shooting academies. This is especially true of those individuals whose possession of the firearm is at best less than fully legitimate.

    It also works as a pump-action "shot gun". 33 seconds to load and I'm accurate to a distance of 25 meters.

    See, this is what makes me think you could be a poe. You're feeding me straight lines.
