A number of years ago, when I lived in KC, I caught a prowler (window peeper) hiding in some bushes by my house. My car headlights and yelling at him were enough to scare him away however, I have wondered what would have happened if he "jumped me". Guess this is a question that can only be answered in the split seconds when it happens.

August 2nd is going to be my first USPSA match. I'm hoping for some basic success with my Glock 35 and some Blade-Tech gear in Limited-10.

I just started reading On Killing by Col. David Grossman . When he discusses the main subject matter, he seems to be right but the book has some anti-gun remarks that aren't scientific as well as some black victimhood / white guilt stuff that is equally wrong .
Violence in the black areas is not due to the number or availability of guns . Guns are far more numerous and sold in more stores in white areas .

The book, Black Rednecks and White Liberals by Thomas Sowell correctly traces violence in the black ghetto to the culture of the Scottish Highlands ; not to the broadcast of Hollywood movies and T.V. into black households .

Another book, Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin , touches on violent southern culture when it mentions a man who warns Griffin that a group of southern blacks can be chatting amiably and then suddenly someone pulls a knife .
