  In the state of Colorado we are taught that it is illegal to shoot some one in the leg or arm "to slow them down".  If you use a weapon in self defense, you shoot to kill.

Nope.  That is what I was taught.  Husband as well.

ETA - had to go look up my notes

Shooting to wound implies that your life isn't in imminent danger.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

I was just talking with my wife about this last night. Once in awhile I have to go outta town for work. When I do, I have my 3006 ready for her, just in case. She asked me if God forbid she ever had to shoot someone, should she just try to shoot them in the leg. I told her to aim for the chest, and not to worry wether or not they lived. To much chance that she will miss her shot if going for the leg.

We've listed ours with the Sheriff's department, our homeowners insurance and our lawyer has a list w/serial numbers.

I think we should register our weapons.

Dude, my scenario was obviously circumstantial. The police aren't an option. It's an emergency situation likely in a societal breakdown where your on your own.

if you believe in "societal breakdown" and zombies, you have bigger problems than owning a gun. Possibly too much video gaming or horror movies. Get out more.

You're right. I talk about zombies way too much. You've got me. I'm zombie guy.
For the record though, societal breakdown is a possibility of human existence. Or is that unproven science fiction too?

It's becoming more in the realm of sciFy all the time. That's why we watch it on TV.

Whole areas of Japan were wiped out by Tsunami. No break down. Whole areas of NJ wiped out. No break down.

Katrina, well there were some area of break down. I could blame that on the Bush admin ... :whistle:

Im curious, ninja, what are your thoughts on foreign invasion? I believe the Japanese, in WW2, said something along the lines of them being unable to invade the US because behind every blade of grass will be an american with a gun.

It was supposed to be Isoroku Yamamoto, chief-commander of the Japanese navy, to have said that, but it is only a myth.
