    This was emailed to me today. Some of you may have seen it already. If not, a good read.
    I think this proves once again that shot placement is critical.

    My heart soars like a hawk. :) This should have been posted in the evening for a bedtime story.

    EXCELLENT STORY

    Stories like that is the reason I alway carry when I go to Memphis. Maybe stories like that will make those Mephis BGs think twice before doing BG stuff.

    I do not live in Memphis and do not want to offend anyone who does as I know there are some great folks there.

    I do have relatives and friends who do live in Memphis and both of my children USED to live there.

    I know of multiple instances where 'bad guys' were plying their trade. In both instances, local law was called. Their involvement ammounted to ONLY filling out paperwork and NO follow up investigation although evidence was aplenty and plain. They showed very little interest at all in what happened and apparantly that is their line unless a major (murder-maybe?) crime is involved.

    When I have occasion to go to Memphis, I do as I would encourage others there to do: PLAN on being equipped to handle any situation you might meet up with. You can not plan on help from the local law enforcement there!

    If you have read the above, you still need to go back and read it again. It is right on! Best wishes to all and WATCH YOUR SIX!

    It seem to me that this is good advice anywhere. I've lived in a number of places over the last 20 years and feel no more nor less safe here than anywhere else I have lived. As always, be aware of your surroundings and have a plan.

    I have friends in Olive Branch, MS a literal hop skip and jump away from Memphis, and I frequently travel between here and Tupelo,MS...so I am in Memphis every 3 or 4 weeks...always armed.
