Re: Remember Crimea?

When I joined the Military, I swore an Oath to Uphold and Defend the Constitution.

Re: Rural home invasion – barricade or run for it?

I'd invite them in for dinner, serve them drug laced whatever and then spend the rest of their suddenly shortened lives making a P.O.V. horror film. A crew like that rolling up on a house isn't accidental. They've got a purpose and a plan and I don't intend to be part of it. Realistically, I'd haul ...

It sounds like you did exactly what needed to be done man. The right place, the right time, with the right tool.

Re: Would you eat canned dog or cat food?

Eat dog food? Sure. Hell if I was hungry enough I'd eat the dog.

Incidentally, you ever notice that without the Marshmallows, Lucky Charms is nearly indistinguishable from cat food?

Re: If you didn't have a firearm...

I used to have a pretty cool blow dart gun. Those things are surprisingly effective on small game and fairly quiet to boot, shoot I could (potentially) wing waterfowl with one then I could send my dog to get it, though I have honestly never tried.

Cabelas still sells them.

Re: Those with BOLs...how do you do security?

For security we have an indu...

Re: Destroying a staircase.

If this seems like a real possibility, destroying the stairs is a lot more difficult than just blocking them, for example with a solid overhead trapdoor (overhead because it's a lot harder to get leverage and knock it open, plus it expands the topside floorplan.)
