    Because I Triple Super Extra Like it and want to pass it on or possibly use it in my book, and I won't do that without giving credit to the author and asking them first.:)

    Nice article! :) This thread is still in the early stages...hopefully it'll grow :)...but I can already see 2 sides...1 that agrees 100% with this line of thinking, and 1 side that will disagree, and say its overkill, that'll most likely land the person doing this, in jail.

    Speaking for myself, while I dont think we should take it to this extreme in every situation, for the life and death ones, the ones where the guy we're facing is potentially going to cause us serious harm, then yes, absolutely.

    Of course, even for those lesser situations, we can still use that same mentality, just slightly toned down. In other words, take it to the point of breaking something, but dont quite cross the line.

    And speaking of sig lines, I like the one you've chosen for yours. :D

    Well it's like I said in the other thread BL posted: There isn't much that you or I, or many members of the forums haven't "seen before" as far as technique, but it *is* a good way to introduce the subject to people who've got no background, which is what I'm aiming at. In some ways this teaches me a little of both--how to present my material and how not to.

    MJS, I like to call it "throttle control" ...some situations call for jsut a tap on the gas...some call for putting the pedal to the metal...


    Andy, that is a good way to look at it. I like these reads becuase it offers insight as to what needs to be done and also what one doesnt need to do... it is also specific as to when and why. "Full throttle" is only authorized when violence is the only answer.123
