I’m from NYC/USSR but trying to get a permit. in the process.
i’m 47, shot my first guns a few months ago, i’m ashamed to say, and it was GREAT!
M4, SCAR and Glock.
M4 was incredible.
But after shooting it, I wonder how ANYBODY left a battlefield with hundreds of men having these and AKs.
One soldier told me in the heat of battle, a lot of shots are errant, it is not constant shooting, at least among the professional soldiers, they try to get cover behind safe quarters, and a few other things I forgot.
I know that once I got jumped by three guys. Got pummeled and lost ALL my courage. Just wanted to get away.
Same when a guy attacked my cab with a baseball bat.
Was ashamed of how I acted in both cases later on.
Have held my own in a number of one on one fist fights, but when the threat of severe damage or death was there, I folded twice.
took boxing to defend myself and it helped in some one on ones.
but I fear I might have folded and run in a military engagement.
GEEZ, our soldiers are TOUGH and DISCIPLINED and GOOD
You’ve a lot to learn about and from this board.
Take a month and go back in the archives.
(you wouldn’t believe some of the names you see posted, never mind some that are behind those that are posted)
I would have done the same in the situations you describe. I’m now getting to the age where I will require a gun as an equalizer. Therefore I will do my duty and become well regulated (armed and trained). I don’t look at the second as a right, but as a responsibility and one I have been mostly ignoring.
On particular point. He had to fill out a PDF on line, which couldn't be saved. Once filled out, he had to print it and take it to the police. My suggestion: print out the blank form. Either fill it out on a typewriter (remember those), or scan it into a word processor and fill it out. Then you can save it on your own computer, and print it out.
