The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
I only know one person robbed at gunpoint. It sucked, apparently. It was my highschool girlfriend's sister. Their Mom and Dad owned a convenience store/gas station and my girlfriend worked there all the time. Her sister was robbed one night by two guys with a shotgun and a knife. She was all by herself. She came out of it physically ok, but was an emotional mess for a while.
This was in Canada. Kinder gentler shotguns, you know. Shotguns fire fluffy kittens in Canada, and knife blades are made out of pudding, so it was OK.
Goo piece, other than calling that gun a college. Caltech?
Actually it's Keltec not Caltech.
I had a little DAO .380 looked kinda like that years ago. Keltec maybe, its been a while...
Complete piece of crap it was. Actually fell apart internally on the range one day. Got pissed off and gave it to the PBSO and told'em it was all theirs. Wasn't worth getting fixed and I wasn't gonna hang that POS on some poor soul who might depend on it to work someday ;->
Ah, I got the thing only now. Though Caltech sounded weird for a gun.
Title: Concealed Carry in Memphis - a positive story
Excerpt: You don't often see a positive story about concealed carry. And it is no surprise that this isn't in the New York Times but in the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
Blog name: TFS Magnum
The story contains several bits about defense. And the woman in the photo is NOT the 53-year-old Thai woman who works in the convenience store.... and used the S&W. That gun belongs to Sandy Turner, who is quoted as saying "I don't think I would hesitate to pull the trigger in a heartbeat."
