How do they even get away with writing tripe like this?  :banghead

I feel that my CCW instructor was right: "If you ever have to defend your life and afterwards, the media comes knocking wanting an interview, show them the door."

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    That kid DGAF. That's gangster. He probably shouldn't have said anything, but what he said was pretty funny. Pretty sure he doesn't need trauma counseling.
    I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

    Well, hey, at least no one died  :coffee.

    The HuffPo comments are atrocious though  :scrutiny. Never read the comments. Ever.

    Oh, I don't. Like thumbing through the Necronomicon, you slowly descend into gibbering madness.

    I thought that was in the articles at huffington post... Never considered looking at their comments.  :vomit

    The boy made it on the American rifleman's "the armed citizen".

    Quote
    Home schooling taught an 11-year-old Alabama boy the value of self defense. The boy was in his home alone when someone broke in. The boy grabbed a handgun and hid while the intruder went upstairs. When the bad guy came down the stairs carrying a hamper full of stuff, he told the boy he was going to kill him and hurled obscenities at the youth. St that point, the boy started firing. The youth credited his step father with teaching him how to use a gun for protection. (WVTM-TV, Talladega, Ala., 4/28/16)


    From the August 2016 issue of American Rifleman

    I rolled my eyes at first, but someone needs to make a "thug life" meme of this kid either from using the YouTube vid footage or by using a screencap  :rotfl.
