I've been in a few fights against people armed with knives, you're wrong that there's no defense (not that it's easy - or lacks risk) but you're right in that you should expect to get cut to some degree, - I've managed to disarm without getting cut too bad each time.

A straight stabbing motion is much easier to counter more often than slashes. They're 1) making their motion predictable 2) putting their weapon furthest from their body where they have the least amount of control and strength to resist counters.

You sound unreasonably afraid of the world, and way too overconfident in the self defense ability a gun gives you :lolsy:

Statistics show that most attacks are launched within 3 feet. You're going to have near 0 chance that your gun is going to save you. I'm not saying that a hand to hand defense is the easiest thing to pull off. But I'm saying it's realistically either that, surrender, or running. If you're really lucky there will be some environmental weapons nearby to help you out.

Well let's meet out in an open field and I'll give you your 21 feet of space and we can test your hypothesis. :ooo:

Also your right back to square one with the your afraid so you carry a gun shit. Thanks for affirming to me that I won our spat on here. Gooday sir!

How about instead of moving the goalposts to some goofy unrealistic situation,  I hide around a corner and close distance full speed while you're just going about your day unexpecting an assault - since that was the premise of your post :smilingpuppy:

Ha!  That's what I was about to say.  Someone would come at him from 21 feet by surprise.

I am in a minority on the shroomery, as I frequently defend the opposing side when they have a point about something or when my side make believes something about them.  People here get very confused by that and think it means I prefer the other side.

  Most likely getting cut is a pretty big risk to take for most people who aren’t good at fighting. That’s most people .  Your unique situation or ability is hardly an attainable solution for people past their prime , or almost all women .  I’ve known 2 who I think would have a chance but they were training to be professional fighters .

How do you think that would work out for you if your opponent was just as capable as you ?

21ft is more than a safe distance. I would take the Pepsi challenge up to half of that distance.. Unless one is a token gun owner, not practing drawing or body ergonomics BEFORE shooting...I would not recommend engagement. Hopefully, it never happens.


--------------------
“I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”

Probably not good.

But what you do have as an advantage - is that well trained/capable people aren't generally the types to be attacking people out of the blue.

Any situation in which you're being attacked seriously is pretty bad, I'm not saying having a weapon for self-defense is bad, I'm saying that if one is serious about defending yourself that one should be realistic that there's a high chance it may be inaccessible within time, and hopefully have an idea of what is a rational strategy when one isn't.


Anyway didn't mean to be part of derailing this thread about how shitty Biden is.

I'm not a Bernie person, but I'd vote for him over biden.

What I find stupid are.YouTube personalities saying Biden is saving the dems from socialism.


I have no respect for anyone that would choose someone that is dieing from a fatal disease over someone that is somewhat unrasonable.
The people around him can reason with that.

dementia is a vascular disease. Id be more worried about that then Bernie's medical issue.

You're not going to get into a full blown fucking John Wick shoot-out with the group of teenagers robbing your house. Even if they are all armed, I don't really picture a scenario where they all don't start frantically running as soon as a shot pops off. Even criminals aren't typically eager to fight to the death over your wallet and the earrings your wife left on the counter.

I don't really know where I stand on guns to be honest. But I think it's fair to say that the chances of ever reasonably having to use an AR-15 are way too slim to justify having them be produced on a mass scale for civilian use.

Well you already quoted me about moving goal posts, so I don't have to reiterate that.

And I also just said:

The cognitive decline is related to vascular damage and plaque accumulation.

People with vascular problems such as what happens when you have chronic elevated LDL, or diabetes, increase your risk.

Yo know you can hunt with an AR15, and more people are killed by small arms by an enormous amount?

In some cases, it's vascular - it's not a specific disease other than being cognitive. It could be caused by numerous things.

And yes, I know both of those things :lol: - I'd probably hunt with an AR-15, SCAR or whatever scoped M-14 clones they have if I hunted. I don't have much of an opinion on gun control, I'm just saying that the gun is both built for, and good at - killing people - as are others.

Yup.  I got cut up pretty badly on both forearms even through a heavy leather jacket, the kind one wears to prevent road rash in a motorcycle accident. But I managed to keep my hands uncut...and, in the end, it was the ole 'but you should see the other guy' scenario.  (I DID have a buddy who jumped in when he saw me getting sliced and diced, though, so I had that going for me)

Yup, again. 

I was carrying, illegally concealed, turned a corner and basically walked into the business end of a 38 held by an approx 12 year old kid.  The kind of 12 year old kid that has been practicing that move for probably almost half his life.

I had exactly zero chance to do anything about it, much less reach behind me and pull my own 38 from my waist.

The kid got my money but nothing else except a little sweat.  Before he got my dough there was a short 10-ish second period where I wondered if I could snatch that revolver from his hand quicker than he could pull the trigger...but then i woke up and handed over the ~ 150$ in my pocket and lived to wonder about the possibilities of snatching his gun a thousand more times since then.

Point is, I had no chance of doing anything meaningful when confronted at less than about 5 feet.

No, most conservatives don't think that. Misinformed lefties think that is how others think.

Why would you think an AR15 is somehow worse then any other semiautomatic rifle? Because it's well designed? do linguini it adds some killing property?

And I've seen the stupid videos claiming it somehow cultures organs in a special way. It's obvious propaganda.




I assure you most conservatives in Canada give zero fucks about owning an ar-15

:shrug:

You think stephen harper types care about assault rifles?  :teehee:
