    We have long lamented the lack of any shows that have everyday citizens defending themselves with a firearm. I was shocked to see that one of the new programs on CourtTV had at least 3 segments of an hour long program where people defended themselves with a gun. The program was called "Most Shocking" and the sub title was "Criminal "Behavior". The whole show was about people defending themselves some with guns, and other with objects as plain as a carpenters level. They didn't try and water down the defense aspect of the show, these people shot back and lived to tell the story because they had guns. One guy who owned a pawn shop down in Texas said many times that they would have been dead if he did not have a gun.

    As far as I can tell the next showing of this according to my TIVO is on 10/22 at 9pm central.

    Did anyone else see this when it was on?

    Visited the website, found this:

    Sure, her finger is off the trigger, and the camera could be on a remote release, but still! :what:

    And it looks like that Glock could use a cleaning. :neener:

    EDIT: I also found it funny that all the LE photos on that website show them "in action" (guns drawn, etc), except the last officer, who's just moping around in a vehicle. :)

    I watched that show last night and really enjoyed it. The woman who pulled that 8 inch blade on the two sisters at the jewelry store in Thailand was insane! :what: She just started slashing at the sisters and they finally got the blade from her and cut up the wannabe robber. Also, that female officer pictured above was trying to handcuff a a coked up 6 11" man by herself and it didnt work out too well. A citizen ran out to help her take the guy down.

    I wish they would just show the videos insted of adding all the fake gunshot and car tires sound effects.

    Plex that is pretty irritating all of those fake sounds gets on my nerves. This particular episode really was good. I am probably going to watch it again so I can lookup up all the shooting stories they featured.
