    Have you ever pulled your weapon on anyone or threatened to shoot anyone? If so, please describe the circumstances. Does not apply to soldiers in war. Howard related because we'd all like to shoot Howard.

    Nope not once, I have alluded to drawing once though and it backed the kids right down.

    A holstered pistol is a useless pistol my father always said

    "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." is a quote by Isoroku Yamamoto, Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II.

    Personally, I have never had to pull a gun on someone but it's nice to know I could if my kids lives depended on it.

    Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    When my neighbor in the trailer park starts up shooting targets outside I wing a few shots over his head to quiet him down.

    My mom owned furs. Every spring they'd be cleaned and stored at the furriers which was in downtown Brockton, MA. After picking them up and being buzzed out of the store this group of black kids standing on the corner saw me and one kid pointed. I had 3 huge full length coats in my arms so it was easy to shift them all left arm and reach inside my jacket with my right hand and look like I was about to draw. The kid that pointed eye's bugged out and they turned and walked fast.

    Best part was when I got in the car my mom asked if I felt ok? I was chuckling at what had happened and said of course I did, why'd she ask. Well I saw you rub your stomach like it was hurting you.... :jj: God bless ma

    Most police have never had to draw their gun.

    Bringing furs to Brockton is your first mistake. Used to live in Whitman.

    I had to draw once. A fucking wad of black teens bum rushed a liquor store that I was in trying to rob the place. At first i stood in the corner letting the events unfold, then it became apparent that the clerk, who wasn't behind the counter (stocking somem shelves) couldn't get to his fire arm and, worse, tipped off one of the shitheads, who was now going for it. I was the only thing between the shithead and the gun, so i drew. The room went silent, the shithead stopped in his tracks and the asshole clerk locked the doors... He grabbed his gun and lined up the perps on the floor as he called the police. Five minutes later it was over... I wandered into the back room, puked, then walked out, gave my statement and left.

    All the fucking clerk had to do was let them go... He decided to lock the door and endanger us all.
