:hmm I haven't consciously dealt with any of this since high school (20 years ago, holy crap).

Worst I've dealt with is the occasional panhandler who gets too close - tell them they need to step back and they always do. I wonder if I'm doing something right or if there just aren't many thugs that are that touchy here?

Funny thing is, with me going to a preppy high school, I never saw this behaviour until I graduated.

You step outside the class room and that academic veneer rubs off in a light wind.

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.
