    Down here the deer are so small you’d have lost most of the meat using a.45

    Nope, training only. Only once have I thought about even drawing was a fox i initially suspected might be rabid, because it was in the dirt road and I had the dogs with me.

    But it was just young and curious.

    I dont understand why people have to enter a thread they do not intend to answer in the spirit is created, just to disparage it. And bring a holier than thou attitude to boot.

    Its much easier to just ... not do that.

    But there's always gotta be the one.

    Only on critters. I live in the country and hunt and fish and trap, so I have shot quite a few animals.

    I am unsure if I should vote drawing attention to it prevented a crime or not. I don't want to go into all the details about why but I was in a cemetery with my wife & two daughters (they were about 5 & 3 then). We had knelt down & said a prayer at my Mothers grave. We were on the back side of the cemetery on a weekday afternoon. No one had been around when we knelt down. When I stood up & turned around there was a fellow sitting in a SUV staring a hole through us. I honestly don't know what he had on his mind but I pulled down on my shirt tail where it was covering my gun as I looked straight at him. The next thing I heard was an SUV cranking. Not sure if I handled it right or not but nothing happened & I am thankful for that.

    Homeless people hang out in cemeteries because no one tries to run them off.

    A road rage incident where the aggressor tried to run me off the road so I stopped in parking lot to get away from them. This person followed and came sprinting towards me with a metal bat type object. I used my truck door as cover and immediately pulled my CCW Glock 27 and trained it center mass, he immediately stopped approximately 15 feet away and spouted off at the mouth for a few minutes. Eventually he got in his vehicle and drove off, NEVER been more scared in my life.

    Presented firearm and stopped myself from being assaulted.

    Don't let them fool you. I had a domestic bull come after me. The jerk chased me fifty yards up into some rocks.
