Yes tough, and very, very fast and accurate.One of the robbers tghought he could knife fight with him, and he took a knife stroke to his hand . I bet that robber no longer breathes Gods good air.

It makes my heart sing to know there are still men like this on the face of this earth.

Old joke about the Gurkhas:

Being deployed by the British in World War II, a group of Gurkha were being briefed about their mission. “You will be flown to your destination, at which point the airplanes will drop under the radar to 500 feet, at which point you will jump from the airplanes. Once on the ground . . .”
“Excuse me,” the leader of the Gurkhas said, “I have an objection.”
“What is it?” the British commander asked.
“I would like us to be dropped at a lower altitude,” he said.
“But the parachutes won’t have time to open if we go below 500 ft,” the commander said.
“Oh,” said the Gurkha, “we have parachutes. In that case, I withdraw the objection.”
