You're taking the joke way out of context. I also take firearm safety extremely seriously, and I treat a BB gun the same way I treat 308, they are always loaded and you never point it anything you don't want to destroy.Zmokin said:So, as a defender, i would somehow be more accurate at shooting a 44 magnum than shooting a 22 lr round. Cuz, if you are going to miss, a miss is a miss. Now if you want to talk home defense, I won't argue against the merits of a sawed off shotgun. But to dismiss a 22 as inadequate as a defensive weapon due to it's "ballistics being a joke", sorry, I respectfully disagree.Fred19Flintstone said:The aggressor has the advantage of forethought (usually) and more times than not the advantage of surprise. This allows the aggressor to calmly aim and fire at fish in a barrel. The defense has to respond to a high stress life or death situation which severely reduces most people's ability to shoot straight. Apples and oranges my friend.
And I find it dangerous when anyone refers to a weapon with lethal force as being a joke. If you think it is a joke, then you are no longer thinking of it as a deadly weapon and that is how deadly accidents happen.
Sorry if you take offense to my viewpoint, but I take gun ownership & handling as a very serious responsibility and it scares me to hear people downplay the lethality of any gun. 22's are NO JOKE !!!!!!
I would too, but I don't think I could handle the chef life. I can't stay up late enough to cook in a real kitchen for the dinner rush.Thatgrimguy said:You can take classes at the Viking school in Atlanta as well. It's an absolutely wonderful experience and definitely helped me get better with sauces. I want to go to CIA so bad. But I'd have to drastically change my life path.
