Oh crap!!

I guess that my set-up for easy access would be out of the question then, it stands next to my bed? Hell, the wife has one on her side of the bed, as well.

Jack you better get one those gun vaults. It only takes one and a half seconds to access. After all you can't trust anyone in your family with the firearm and it better be locked up.

I work for a very elite team of security specialists who guard the entire teenage population from certain death. Although we have black ops training by way of Call of Duty I was wondering if you would be willing to guest instruct a training of ours. We seem to be having a problem finding someone who could adequately train us on how to properly secure our weapons so they are absolutely useless to us when we need them.

You come to this site that has a wealth of information from people who have forgotten probably more than you know and call us trolls? This site is filled with expert firearms handlers, military, retired military, LE and retired LE. People who have dedicated their lives to firearms and the proper handling and storage of and YOU come here to tell us that you not only don't agree with us, you flat call us names? We ALL TAKE the handling of firearms very seriously and that includes the safe storage of them, however some of us have these firearms for defense. Through our years of training we know how to safely keep a firearm close by in the event it is needed. I'm sorry if we don't live up to your standards set forth by you and your mounds of experience.

Do us all a favor and go somewhere else. I think Gecko45 has a still has a website up.

Jack,

If that was my set-up the bad guy would be done with what he was going to do and be home in bed before I decided what to shoot him with.

Just trolling...........

Just a guess, but I'd say the big case holds Jacks cape and mask, the smaller one holds a weeks supply of Tactical Bacon.

Big case: Raptor NVG's and operational scopes.

Small case: Class III suppressors for selected handguns and rifles.

Not sure what you are referring to in regards to "the recently departed Tango" but when I was in-country TANGO referred to Tactical Air Naval and Ground operations. I suppose Tango now refers to "TARGET" or something. Heard the term in a movie recently. Where'd you serve? My family are all vets up until the current generation where for some reason it seems to be hit and miss. Ah, changing values. Very few were draftees by the way. Most of the family are Americans, a few Canucks and the wife's half British and again, ALL vets. Her dad is DFC for getting blown to smithereens out of a Halifax in Aden during WWII. The amazing thing is that he survived and still has shrapnel coming to the surface... he either plucks it out himself with a razor blade or visits his GP who uses a scalpel... but that's a bit of a drive. None, as a matter of interest, walk around using the term "Tango". Ah well, each to his own. Or her own.

Have lots of LEO's around too. None of them use the term "Tango" in general conversation either. Not to cut you down a notch, but the term "FUBAR" comes to mind here... most don't have to watch movies to know what that means.

Your personal attack is uncalled for my friend. It indicates to me that you have some serious personal issues that need some attention. And since I am neither qualified to attend to that nor interested in anything further that you have to say, please be advised that effective immediately your postings will not be read by me. A matter of personal choice.

One last thing. Toronto, where I presently reside (although we are on a quest to purchase our retirement home stateside at the moment... looking at FL or AZ/NV) has a population of about 6 million. Murder rate? About 50 per year for a population of 6 million. Think about that and think about the reasons for that. Or take Washington DC with a population of about 700K. Murder rate? 50 per thousand. That would make it about 350 a year. My numbers may be off a bit but what does this tell us?

In any event, your apology would be gratefully accepted at this end but since I am not going to read anything that you care to post in future I have no idea how you would go about that.

In closing I just have one thing to say and I think that it is not uncalled for.

"GROW UP. GET A LIFE. GET SOME HELP IF YOU NEED IT. GET ALL THE FACTS BEFORE BEING AN EXPERT. KNOW WHO YOU ARE TALKING TO BEFORE INSULTING THEM. STOP TROLLING." Geez.
I was afraid that was going to go awry. First off, I apologize. I had not read the entire thread prior to my stepping in. Secondly, I was attempting to imitate the inimitable "CaptTango", who recently left the forum. I implore you to research his pearls of Tangodom. To give you a hint, the forum had a "Tangopedia".
My service? 20 years USN, retired as a Senior Chief, and was awarded the highest peace-time medal a fella can get for being a dumb-ass. There's a picture of my shadowbox behind my Springfield in the XD forum, just for validation purposes. Dad was at Normandy, Grandfather was stationed at Brest, brother's a retired Corpsman Chief........ Nothing extraordinary, but we're players.
Welcome to the forum!

The finger is faster than the mind generally. All is well and I now understand with thanks and feel a whole lot better.

I, too, often make statements and then on second thought, after posting, realize that it didn't feel right and might be taken out of context by a newbie.

Thanks for stepping up to the plate brother. You are upstanding.

I have not read the law in MI but I would be willing to bet that it is preceeded by the word "imminent" or "immediate"; in other words if some guy is down the street and looking shifty.... well, don't shoot.
