The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Actually, this makes a lot of sense to me.

All the crappy stuff which happened in my

life was the stuff I was unprepared for.

Are you human? are you aware of what a reactionary gap is?it takes me less than a second to lug over a table and go for your throat with my bare hands or a knife or whatever weapon i have, even if you have gun in hand locked cocked and ready to fire you need to bring your pistol to bear on that tiny target as its flying through the air at you, i already know what youll do. youll bring it to bear on ME and twitch shoot and i can almost guarentee you wont hit my hand youll hit me. and FYI if you shoot center mass and the guy drops you can call 911 and the paramedics will drag that persons sorry ass to the emergency room and probably save him. A gunshot wound isnt nearly as fatal as hollywood makes them out to be.

Also, yeah, I'm a human, And yeeaaah, anything that goes right through your chest cavity will probably kill you.

Another thing to consider is a person's determination, pain threshold,

and mission orientation. I've mauled myself OTJ many times, and have

a high pain threshold. Were I determined enough, for instance,

( bear in mind I'm a poor example, because I'm busy with

my own life, and would probably never attack you) merely

shooting my hand, in all probability, would not stop me.

Were I to determine I needed to actually needed to shoot

another person,(God forbid, never have, probably never will)

I would not be aiming for their hand.
