    Yes, I see.

    But really, that woman has likely never handled a bullet proof vest nor examined anything that the shooter had in very much detail, with a bullet in her back and all.

    Looks like she'll recover, that's nice.

    What do you see, and where? That's why I included the image jpg, for the apron lookin' apparel that might be body armor...still not mentioned by media or cops.

    The dear sweet lady was doing fine running away (2 missed shots), then she curled up in a ball presenting a static target. Not a good response to someone shooting at you.

    sounds to me like people should take charge in some active shooter evasion training.

    LOL Have you?

    Such is very low on my list of priorities, waay below EMT (Eighties), Radiological controls, competition driving, et cetera. And that's training, not even education.

    enhance your paintball experience and put and use miscellaneous pepper balls in everyone's guns, one or two, maybe three...now that makes not wanting to get struck paramount and definitely signals when you are finished playing for the day...

    Play? What is play to a senior adult?

    For now I consider my play as my 25 mile 'bike' (recumbent tricycle HPV) rides, drinking perhaps too much, cards with friends, heavy reading. I'll be 67 in a few days. I'm 6'2", weigh 230#, 45 RHR, 100/60 BP Ride 100 miles at the drop of a hat.

    I just finished my Monday chores, that you may consider play. White laundry, folded and put away. 1000 sq.ft. vacuumed/scrubbed linoleum. Washed the car (immaculate new CPO 2012 BMW X5) and, most importantly (to prevent water spots), towel and blow dried it. Washed the mag wheels. Wiped the inside painted surfaces. Next lunch. Nap. Read. Dinner. Stream a movie.

    Rinse, repeat. (Except my 10 y.o. floor scrubber packed it in, $200) I took my holstered SA1911A1 off while working on the car to prevent scratches.

    Tomorrow I'll ride if the weather is nice - probably. Wednesday, mow, whack, scythe, spray and weed. Thursday launder the linens and hopefully line dry them. Friday, bike ride.

    Tired is the root word of retired.

    sorry if I laugh out loud but your post made me cause of some satirical humor in it IMO..

    I guess being in the 30's has it's advantages, although my day consists of fixing everyone elses car problems so washign the car is not likely cause I hate them by the end of the day. although after 11 hours without any form of climate controlled environment, I go home and I check on some fruit plants I have, do some chores, make dinner for the wife and kids, stream a movie, then go to bed.

    rinse, and repeat. until day off. then some days off I TRY to get the wife to go play laser tag with our little one, or get a family member to watch little one, and play paintball, usually without success..

    waiting for the little one to get big enough for paintball, but laser tag is good enough for right now for her.

    I'm glad to see someone finally give an accurate assessment. The conspiracy theorists are already claiming "false flag!" their reasoning exhibiting pure ignorance and delusions of Hollywood violence. I find it hard to believe people such as those are even real.
