Mobuck said:I may live in a somewhat primitive spot but if I need to deploy a weapon, I'm not going to go the 'non-lethal' route.
If I lived in a spot that forbid the use of a 'lethal weapon', I'd move post-haste.
If I were a bad guy, I'd be all for the use of 'non-lethal' weapons. Being uncomfortable for a couple hours is nothing compared to being dead forever.
Out in the sticks, you're on your own.
You don't know if the bad guy is alone, or armed, or crazy. His friends either, if he's not alone.
You didn't seek the encounter. You don't want the encounter. It has been forced on you.
Whatever the outcome, depends on YOU.
I would never want to bring a knife to a gun fight...
