some do. where i live it's pretty rural and if i relied upon 911, it might not end well for us. it could be anywhere from 15-30 minutes before deputies arrive if i call 911. depending on where they are and what they are involved in if we called 911.

with that time span, and if we weren't armed, that is a lot of time for a BG to lots of harm to us.

Sometimes I rely on a 1911 to save my bacon.

I think the 911 was a typo. They forgot the 1.

Could I pull the trigger? It would be a reflex. There would be no thinking about it.

There's at least one member on this forum who has that mentality. I'm not going to mention any names but he's the resident self-proclaimed socialist and has said on at least one occasion how none of HIS guns are intended for defensive purposes.

There is case law (I can't find it right now) that states the police have no duty to save you.
