Marcus Aurelius: I can picture this guy in his closet. You'd be paralyzed with indecision for at least a full minute. The .357 or the .45? The Remington pump or the double crow bar?
jehovahs witness protection: Penetration or knockdown power? Burt goes for the elephant gun.
bmihura: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: A gun nut that's in the closet? Why am I not surprised...I know which loser YOU voted for. The one who is currently crashing our economy.
DrewCurtisJr: squibbits: What are the other options? Wait and see what the guy is going to do? Call 911 and hope they get there fast enough?Yes, in some cases when only property theft is involved.
Frank N Stein: duenor: Plan, experiment, plan. Plan your home layout. Install alarms. Plan even for after the shooting.I do the same for car breakdowns, fires, earthquakes, medical emergencies, witnessing a crime.This is why these items are always within reach of me. Gotta be prepared for anything.[oi44.tinypic.com image 494x512]
DrewCurtisJr: Frank N Stein: This is why these items are always within reach of me. Gotta be prepared for anything.I get the playboy and the n64 cartridge, but what's up with the claymore?

doglover: the person being attacked does not have a "duty to retreat."This should be an international standard.
Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Everfearful: I respect differing viewpoints.Not a viewpoint.If the crooks just sat him down and held him at gunpoint it's a firearm fiesta for them and perhaps a severe beating or worse for him.Or is he going to outrun a bullet?
For ALL your varmint problems!
"Neighbors say burglaries have been on the rise in recent months, the latest being a robbery where thieves kicked down a door."
They have a problem, but I have the solution:
Just don't carry Skittles with you and you'll be fine.
Marcus Aurelius: My .357 firing 158 grains has more than twice the power of a .45 ball. But I can suppress the .45, and that would be terrifying to any intruder. PHHHUMMMP. PHHHHUMMMMP. klink klink. The .357 on the other hand goes through walls and is deafening, plus it has 7 shots, so if they're counting, they're in trouble.
mr_a: Marcus Aurelius: I can picture this guy in his closet. You'd be paralyzed with indecision for at least a full minute. The .357 or the .45? The Remington pump or the double crow bar?It would depend.If the walls needed repaintig soon anyway, I'd go with the Remington. But if I just wanted to change out the carpet, than the .357. Even if the .45 is more powerful, .357 just sounds cooler.
