    Just wanted to post a positive encounter i had last night.I was at Lowes in Suffolk with my wife and kids,picking up some plywook to remodle my workshop.Store was pretty busy,didnt notice any :whatr comments.When I stepped up to pay,the young girl who was cashier said "thats pretty i want one" referring to my glock 33.I had a nice conversation about OC in virginia and helped her get on the right path on chosing a sidearm and proper training.Told her about OCDO. Left me feeling good.Now when my wife gets used to me carrying more,we will be ok.

    Glocks are not pretty in the sense of sight. Glocks are pretty in a sense that they are a true piece of craftsmanship. They are very reliable and have built a very good reputation in the gun world with a very broad array of aftermarket and Glock products available for them.

    After you run out of rounds (while still yelling "Quit attacking me with a deadly weapon" or something to that effect), you can always bludgeon them to death with the aforementioned boat anchor!:celebrate

    That is a concern I've thought about Doc.
    5 rounds = 10 dead bad guys if they bunch up just right, 2 speed loaders fot a total of 30 dead bad guys before I have to take them on unarrmed.....

    I'm not as young as I used to be so If I'm attacked by more than 50 people...I'm going to have to dial 911:celebrate:celebrate

    Hahaha! Hopefully you are never in that situation to see if they are dumb enough to line up behind each other, and if they don't... that is where the M61 Vulcan comes into play... which is a 20 mmhydraulically or pneumatically driven, six-barreled, air-cooled, electrically fired Gatling-style cannon with an extremely high rate of fire!!! (insert the manly soundsof Tim Allen from 'Home Improvement'!) :celebrate:celebrate

    Granted the 30mm is a vastly more powerful weapon... when it comes to destroying heavily armored vehiclesand fortified positions, I was mearly looking at the RPM for multiple bad guys! Hehehe!

    -M61: 6,000rpm (3,450f/s) (more easily mounted on vehicles, likedriving around town in rush hour traffic!)

    -GAU-8: 3,900rpm (3,500f/s) (must have entire plane designed around it therefore increasing costs just by a couple million dollars!)

    Keep your head down and stay safe over there!!!

    I don't think that .410 in a short barrel will do through 2 bodies ;-)

    My "bottom feeder" has 25 ready to gothrough it (14+1 and 10 in secondary mag)... along with a Taurus "The Judge" in 3" with 3-000 buckshot and 2-Corbon DPX to follow up. But the best firearm for defense... is any firearmwith ammo!
