Note: That fairly expensive laptop is only just about two years old - but I guess its maker can't be blamed for the invading viruses that have stuffed it.
- Enough already - Gregs weekend newsletter included this link to a story about effectiveness of various calibers for self defense .. well worth a look:
- And a link to a story by firearms expert Massad Ayoob about thoughts and practicalities of getting a dog as a pet and for home security:
- And for any of you not aware of Gregs FACT BASED original research as a Police Officer and Trainer - into the effectiveness of the more usual handguns (and long arms!) - from recorded events gathered over a ten year period:
I had (sort-of) forgotten the details of Gregs research findings based on ACTUAL shootings and was elated to note that the table for .32s .. only 32"Long & .32ACP - records 72% actually incapacitated by one shot (torso or head hit).
That is a top performance for small caliber rounds/guns dismissed by many as ineffective mouse guns.
- Owning a large effective animal such as a protective DOG has to be taken equally seriously as a long term commitment.
