A Bit More on Defensive Shooting and I'll Hop Off My Soapbox

Last week I threw up this link up on the blog.  Otherwise known as the defensive shot heard 'round the internet, it pointed out one of the most basic reasons for owning a firearm, namely, the protection of yourself and your children.  Here's some follow up links pertaining to this story:
  • The 18 year old almost made this mistake (the gist of the article being that if you have to stop and ask about the legality of defensive shooting at a critical moment, you are wasting valuable time and putting yourself in even more danger, so know the laws BEFORE you need to know them)
  • An "Aftermaths" contact form (something we usually don't think about ahead of time)
  • After you draw your gun (again, more stuff you should think about before you find yourself in a self defense situation)


  1. One of the safety officers at my local range recommended membership in a pre-paid legal service (His sister sold that, so he obviously was unbiased) and I belong to one, and used it twice: once for a speeding ticket and once for getting a will made up.

    Your thoughts?
