Today I left home in a hurry to do some banking and to pick up dinner, neglecting to put on my crossbreed supertuck and take my G23 with me. I threw my Ruger LCP in .380 in my pocket and headed out the door. I finished my errands and stopped by a hole in the wall Chinese restaraunt to pick up some dinnner. I placed my order and sat down at a waiting area for my food to be ready, about 15 minutes. A man walks in with his hand in his pocket, acting really shady, ordered his food and said he'd be back to pick it up. It got me to thinking while sitting there, I would feel REALLY outgunned with this little LCP, had he decided to try and rob the place, or even shoot someone in the process of a robbery. I would not want to take my chances against a violent criminal with a larger gun than I. My question to you is, if you were presented with a situation where you KNEW for a fact this guy was going to harm someone, or already did, would you be clear in taking a head shot? My answer to this, is that with such a small gun you can't expect to shoot someone in the back / chest and expect them to immediately cease all action, and not to turn around and open fire directly back on you with more firepower. I guess in the words of James Yeager "Don't invite them to a gunfight" I know there was a list somewhere of the "banned phrases of 2012" that included saying "Thanks in advance", but I would really like to take the time to say it now instead of bumping the thread. I really appreciate the work you have done and providing your knowledge to answer questions for the inquisitive. Thank You.
