another thing to consider is that there are still some states that don't have a Castle Doctrine, meaning they have to flee instead of having the right to use deadly force when invaded.

I have been in numerous barroom brawls were I was carrying a knife and/or a gun yet using a deadly weapon never crossed my mind. I have toted a few good butt whippings but I never felt I was in fear of my life. Now my health is failing I would use a weapon. But I do a pretty good job of staying out of trouble and barrooms. I even avoid restaurants that serve alcohol.

I've been attacked twice while carrying. Once I defended myself with my hands (I didn't feel in fear for my life), and the second time I had a knife to my throat in an attempted hoopty jacking (doesn't even deserve the dignity of being called a car). In my hands were my cellphone (left), and a lit cigarette (right). I was in a family dollar parking lot, looking up directions to some place. I heard that eyeball sizzle when I jammed that butt into it, then I smacked the shifter into drive and floored it.

Both times I was carrying my Smith and Wesson 65-2. The one scenario, I just didn't fear for my life. It was a bout of fisticuffs and I knew I had him beat before he even jumped on me. The second time, I was in fear for real. But my hands were full. I used the nearest thing at hand (in hand), a lit cancer stick.

You remember how the body sometimes releases control of bladder and bowels in a life or death situation? I wasn't that fun...

Release of contents of bowels & bladder is one thing, release of arterial content is a whole different ball game.

I'd rather a change of undies than a transfusion, anyday!
