It's got to be a dream. Nobody lives that far outside of reality do they?
If that guy isn't a 12 year old, and is an adult with a CCP I just might change my stance on gun control. Because someone that far out of touch with the real world who actually has a gun scares the crap out of me.
No Delta, I said don't subject yourself to your own stupidity. Unless you make fewer mistakes than the computers that control the machines at the ammo factories, which is probably about as likely as being struck by lightning, then you're subjecting yourself to more potential problems than you need to (something JW stated that he wanted to avoid). He already stated that he can't load ammo well enough to make his M&P cycle reliably, which should be a small clue that reloading is not for him (or at least it would be for me if I was reloading).
If you feel the need to do so much mental masturbation over carrying the type of weapon you personally like to carry while ignoring all the rest of reality then go to a place where you can carry whatever strikes your fancy so you can stop hiding behind "following the law" or other silly excuses for not using modern technology and come to terms with your own pride and prejudices- thing that have little to do with logic.
I said IF he's going to OC a weapon, something JW said he wanted to do and not something KBD ever stated that he wanted to do, why not go for the gold and carry a rifle? Or just carry concealed.
Somehow someone who calls people names over the internet and clearly can't read who wrote what is "in-touch" with reality and is worried about everyone else who's "out-of-touch"? Tell me more...
Honestly, why does everyone get so butt-hurt when someone tells them that they think they're making choices based on personal preferences instead of logic and numbers? Anyone else here ever heard the expression, "take the point, not the arrow"?
Unless my reading skills aren't as good as I thought they were, the title of the tread was "Arguments against NOT carrying a revolver". The OP then goes on to state that he doesn't want to hear about the most obvious way in which semi-auto's are better than revolvers for SD. Really? Because it invalidates your argument?
Delta, if it gives your butt a warm, fuzzy, less hurtful feeling I'll start an "Arguments for carrying a revolver" thread wherein we can all make arguments for carrying them.
How many times did I say carry whatever you like?
Do people just post things here because they want others to agree with them, like some sort of support group for alternative reality decision making? If you don't agree with me, you're 12 years old, you're out of touch with reality, and you shouldn't have a gun? That sounds like perfectly reasonable thinking to me. Will I be called a poo-poo head in your next post?
I don't care if people disagree with me or not, they're welcome to write whatever they want to me. It's not personal to me because I take the point, which some others are clearly incapable of doing once their choice of gun, hunting dog, pickup truck, or whatever else is questioned.
