    Self-Defense laws in your state?

    You are correct Tez. People here in the US confuse legal terms quite often. People will often say "I was robbed" when they discover their vehicle was broken into overnight...robbery is the unlawful taking of property by force or the threat of force...not simple larceny from a vehicle or even a...

    shot placement vs speed

    Generally, I dislike fixedness in both long swords and hands. Fixedness means a dead hand. Pliability is a living hand. You must bear this in mind. -Musashi

    shot placement vs speed

    You revive this topic every couple of years or something? :) Accuracy vs Speed My answer remains the same: If you can place 3 rounds touching in 30 seconds... You need to speed up. If you hit a limb with one out of 3 shoots in 1 second...you need to slow down. I know I know...we all heard...

    The .600 Overkill

    There you go again. Implying that ALL hunters are doing something wrong unless they hunt for subsistence reasons ("if it HAS to be done"). I don't NEED to hunt to feed my family, I hunt because I enjoy hunting. The killing of the game is only one aspect of hunting. In the end, what is the...

    The .600 Overkill

    But at the same time you take a shot at me implying that I enjoy killing and I should go to a bar with my father instead of the woods even though I'm not a trophy Hunter.... Whatever. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk

    The .600 Overkill

    Some people do many things for many reasons. Most soldiers I knew did it for many different reasons...and the killing was only a small part of it. And one most took no pleasure in. I've never felt pleased with the actual act of killing a deer. I've certainly felt pleased with the sense of...

    The .600 Overkill

    I don't know why I'm bothering, because you just don't get it. I enjoy hunting even when I don't kill anything. Your equation of Hunting with killing isn't what the enjoyment of Hunting is all about. I'd take a day in the woods over a night boozing up any day. Equating alcohol consumption with...

    The .600 Overkill

    But you are disparaging people who hunt when they "don't have to", or enjoy the hunt in any way, even if they do eat what they kill. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The .600 Overkill

    Not to mention that many environmental preservation programs wouldn't exist without the fees from our hunting licenses.... And I think Tez has a very "British" view on hunting. Culturally and historically, hunting has been a very different activity in Britain vs here in the US. Hunting has...

    The .600 Overkill

    I've hunted Whitetail deer since I was 16. I certainly do it "for pleasure" because I don't "need" to kill my own meat. I enjoy the tradition. I enjoy the time with my Father, Uncle and other hunting partners. I enjoy stories of hunts years past and memories of my Grandfathers and Uncles who I...

    How Effective Is Bodybuilding For Self Defence?

    I think people sometimes link decisions automatically with "responsibility" and I don't think that's necessarily always the case. We make all sorts of choices...like what breakfast cereal to buy and we make decisions (de-cide like homi-cide where we kill all other choices but one). Like yin/yang...

    How Effective Is Bodybuilding For Self Defence?

    Depends on what you think luck is. Sometimes lightening strikes you on a sunny day while mowing the lawn. More often it happens while you are sitting against a flagpole under a thundercloud.

    Sure. Train. Train to be as strong, as fast AND as skilled as you can be. Luck? You can train that by making good decisions.

    This isn't directed at you gpseymour, or anyone in particular here...just freeflowing some thoughts. IMHO. A rigorous conditioning programs benefit is really just 1/2 in the actual physical attributes it provides. The mental aspect of pushing your way through discomfort (and the discipline of...

    Not always.... Just usually.... I think the whole Yin/Yang, "strength is bad" thing is used as an excuse to rationalize a lack of conditioning by many "martial artists". Not ALL. Just many.

    Use of Force Law

    Have you ever arrested or charged someone with assault/battery/harassment, or been involved in a prosecution for same? I think some of us have a pretty good grip at what qualifies ad deadly physical force and what doesn't within our particular jurisdictions.

    The THING that grinds my gears is how the media/Social Media and even the "man on the street" looks at THE POLICE as some sort of universal thing in the USA. Some Metro Cop gets in a questionable shoot in California and somehow my Mid-Size Agency in NY gets lumped into the "problem with our...
