    "To own firearms is to affirm that freedom is not a gift from government...As the Founding Fathers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of trust."

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    Machinegunner obviously (having 12 years experience at it) but you're missing his five buddies that look like that too

    The rifleman theory for me. After two shots center mass, one to the head. If still standing.

    Three pattern/theory ? Its all in how one sees things. While there are only three pictures it doesn't mean you only see one of three types listed. "rorschach inkblot"

    None of the above.
    I was taught the late Bill Jordan's "shoot the belt buckle" theory with regard to human attackers that if you shatter the sacrum, you incapacitate the potential attacker. Also, the hip/pelvis area is the least likely area to move quickly when you draw your firearm, along with keeping the attackers arms in view.
    I was also taught that knowing something about anatomy, and where to place your shot relative to the positioning of your attacker to hit vital organs, can come in handy.
    Electing Joe Biden as President will be similar to going bear hunting at night with just a pair of chop sticks and a lit candle. You know it is a bad idea from the outset, you can not defend yourself, you are ill prepared for what can and maybe will happen, and you question why you even thought it would be a good idea in the first place.

    This reminds me of a range day when I was on M-1 Abrams tanks. One of the gunners targeting a "squad of infantry" forgot to flip the switch to change from main gun to the coaxial machine gun. He thought he was aiming the machine gun, so he put the reticle right on the center of one of the silhouettes. Result? A 120mm hole, perfectly centered on the silhouette. They had to shut the range down to go replace the target. The gunner was pumped, the rest of us thought it was a riot.... the range personnel were just grumpy about it.

    Ah, I finally understand why so many youts wear their waste-band around their thighs. Their belt buckle would be between their thighs and when you shot at them, it would go straight through nothing. It must be a survival technique. I just thought they were prison-glorifying idiots, but they are clever!

    Rifleman for me. I read in a book somewhere, two to the chest, one to the head, leaves the perp, dead dead dead. Or something like that.
    “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote" - Benjamin Franklin

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."
