Man, if they wake me up at 3 in the morning AND kick down my door,

they will be lucky if I go after them with a gun.

I'll probably just beat them to death with what's left of my door.

I've got enough home repair problems without having to babysit

fools who have nothing better to do than break off my stuff and

wake me up at three in the morning. I've got a wicked temper when

I don't get my sleep.

Choose any 23 of those words you like.

The point about making a joke is a very good one. I have learned never to joke with anyone unless I know them very well. Especially, never try to joke across a language barrier, a dialect barrier nor a cultural barrier. In a stand off situation, speak slowly, simply and plainly and ask the other party if they understand. This has stood me well in a number of countries in a number of situations.

Great post and great points.

Here's something else to consider:

In the event, God forbid, that you do have to defend yourself and your family from persons wanting to harm you, and you use deadly force, you can bet your backside some down-on-his-luck ambulance chasing lawyer will use your words, on this site and others, to create even more chaos in your life.

Joke or not, your words will be quoted and you could be conceived as a person with a desire and propensity for gun violence. Many juries won't be able to understand the truth, and you and your family may suffer.

Your words may bring the same issues for other board members and fellow firearms enthusiasts.

I never, ever wish to be in a position where I would have to shoot someone. My wishes don't really matter in real life, however, and should I be faced with an intruder in the middle of the night, I will do so if necessaryto protect my life or my family's lives. I hope I never have to aim my gun at another person, and if I do, I hope that bloodshed can be avoided. I did not get my CCW because I have a bloodlust, but because I don't want my blood to be spilled because I had no means of protecting myself.

Just my long-time views on the subject.
