2,000 quarter expenditure and a near-danged death experience
Posted by: Furiously Stylish

Disclaimer: no Macs were purchased in this post.

Some of you may remember (and some of you can't forget) that I'm a firm, practicing believer in the 2nd Amendment. Friday I picked up a new acquisition, a SIG-Sauer P-239 in 9MM, with night sights.

On the way back, I stopped in at a commercial pistol range in extreme Northeast Philly. I wanted to run 50 through the new kid and make sure that there were no significant issues with it.

I went in, got the lay of the land, paid ($22 for range time, ammo, and one reduced (smaller than standard) silhouette target, with free "eyes" and "ears"), and went out on the range, all by myself. Wish it could have stayed that way.

This lady comes out and sets up two lanes down from me, shooting a 2" lightweight S&W .38 Special, single action. Nothing special, but she's fairly well all over the target.

Anyway, I came in with nothing but the new kid swaddled in a pistol "rug," and had nothing with which to mark the target. So I asked her if she had a pen that I could borrow. She lends me one. Thank you, lady.

Returning it, I innocently ask her what she's shooting, as in, model, etc. With that, she turns to me, index finger inside the trigger guard, with the weapon loaded, cocked, and pointed dangerously far above my left knee (like, where the legs come together), and cheerfully replies "It's a .38 Special." One good twitch on her part would have been enough to fire a round.

I looked at her and said, "Uh, ma'am, you have that pointed right at me. Would you mind?" A bit more tact and calmness seemed to be in order, more than the blistering earful I really wanted to give her. After 20 years of shooting, this is about as close as I'd like to come to a transcendental experience on a range.

I'm starting to think that knitting might be less dangerous.

Interesting.

We don't have any laws here about consumption and carry, so I set myself a one-beer limit and sip it slowly and peacefully.

I had a Mexican restaurant situation, too, except it was the other way around. Some @#$%&-toasted little burro (I use that word because many might not know what an onager is) with his three ir four year old daughter or niece in hand was eyeballing my wife hard in line while we were waiting for a table. All sorts of posturing, trying to get as close as possible, staring at her chest etc., etc. Unfortunately, she's tall enough so that her *cough* distinguishing features were just about eye-level on this sack of @#$%&.

I told him in Spanish, in no uncertain terms, that the only reason he was still standing was because of the little girl, but that if he didn't straighten up and stop his behavior that he and his head were goingly to be shortly separated and that I would attend to certain functions in the resultant cavity. That didn't seem to faze him in the least.

Thankfully, we've been going to this place for years, and I know most of the staff either by name, or by face, so I got the head waiter to make sure that we had plenty of separation. As soon as he got in ther, the little twerp whipped out a camera phone and started taking pictures of her!

Absolutely insane, and no, it was in the car, unloaded, with a piece of plastic zip tie through the action because we had just come from a gun show.

No problem.

They employ tritium, a mildly radioactive but brightly glowing substance, which is inserted into small tubes, which are then made integral with the front and/or rear sights.

Major brands are Trijicon, Meprolight, and XS.

These are "Meps," which are pretty much the no. 1 brand:

Why does it say "STANLESS" on the slide? Maybe the woman's ex was named Stan and that provoked her. The female of the species, under the impression that it is the giver of life, often has less hesitation in taking it. Next time wear your kevlar cup.

"Street life is all about respect and rank. When someone "greets" you with a " 'Sup?", it's disrespectful and dangerous not to meet their gaze equally and on the same level.

It isn't just a greeting. It's as much a challenge for you to indicate that you have the appropriate cojones to walk down through what they may consider to be their territory. If you look away, you're going to get eaten alive in most cases. If you overplay your response, you had better, in the words of a friend of mine, "be ready to fight, ****, or run a footrace for money, chalk, or marbles."

Judging seansean's actions by suburban or rural standards of behavior is worthless, really. Those of you who think that it's childish to play at sidewalk chicken with someone may not be aware of how easy it is to die at the hands of an infuriated 15 year old. When I go into the city, I am always "strapped" and I try to remain conscious of the rules by which those around me play out their lives. To do otherwise would be tactically imprudent."

In all forms of strategy, it is necessary to maintain the combat stance in everyday life and to make your everyday stance your combat stance.

He wears a gimp costume? OK, I can see how that'd tactically wise (I'd steer clear, wouldn't you?), but it must chafe on those all day shopping-for-guns excursions.

OMG, this is an hilarious thread! Good to see Fusty (again) receiving the smackdown he so strongly deserves.

Whatsamatter, Fusty? A woman ain't allowed to point a gun at you with no intention of causing harm but YOU openly admit to threatening civilians with guns no less than three times – including once pulling a gun on an unarmed woman?

Yer a clown, Styles.

This is pathetic. I could walk down %th and Boradway, In Gary, Indiana, at 2AM, unarmed, with just attitutde, and NOBODY will mess with me. Not then, not now.

This is the same city that beat Chicago/DC and Detroit for per capita murders.

HAving one for protection is fine. Having one because someone is looking at your wife's @#$%& ...AND YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT?

And then you resort to that insanity? Instead of looking at your wife and absorbing a possible compliment?

I'm sorry FuSty - - that doesn't make any sense at all, and your actions were threatening enough that you should have been locked up.

I've never (knock on wood) been mugged. I've almost been mugged, people have attempted to mug me, but it hasn't happened yet. And a lot of that has to do with attitude and awareness, as JP suggests. It also has to do with thinking outside the box and changing the script on the would be mugger. Once, when confronted with a knife wielder demanding my money, I pulled out a pair of pliers and calmly stated, "If you stab me, I'm going to give you such a pinch!" The dude cracked up and I took off running for a few blocks until I was around other people.

It's the Taxi Driver meme. And possibly a deep insecurity. I think that's why I feel a twinge of guilt when I tease fusty, because I know what it's like to feel insecure, but rather than empathize, I behave cruelly.

But despite the apparent insecurity, Fusty doesn't back down and dishes out almost as good as he gets, at least in these forums. What ever else you might say, you have to give him that, although whether it's due to innate stubbornness of character or a deep seated character disorder, I won't hazard a guess.

You can't be as naive as you seem from the above post. This Furious nut, he's a psychotic. The gun posts, the targets. He's a dangerous psychotic nut. He's actually a walking talking advocate for gun ownership. As in, if there are true psychotics like him walking around with guns, I think we all may need to be carrying in order to protect ourselves.

If he's as bad as you say, every minute he's posting on the internet is another minute he's not out on the street where he could actually do some damage. If the charges you are leveling are truly serious, I'd like to see some proof. Otherwise, I will continue to think that all the gun talk doesn't amount to much more than Napolean Dynamite bragging about wolverine hunting.

Don: Hey, Napoleon. What did you do last summer again?
Napoleon Dynamite: I told you! I spent it with my uncle in Alaska hunting wolverines!
Don: Did you shoot any?
Napoleon Dynamite: Yes, like 50 of 'em! They kept trying to attack my cousins, what the heck would you do in a situation like that?
Don: What kind of gun did you use?
Napoleon Dynamite: A freakin' 12-gauge, what do you think?

Bottom line is that I think Fusty is just another maladjusted crank on the internet, an accusation that could easily be leveled at me, and certainly fits you as well.

So far, no one has had an eye poked out, so it's all in fun.

I've admitted to no such thing and done no such thing.

If you insist on continuing to twist what you know of my on-line postings in such a manner as to defame me or suggest that I am guilty of offenses that I have not in fact committed, especially doing it in concert with other posters, and you continue doing it being aided and abetted by Matt, whose particulars are well known to me, you may just find yourself on the downside of an ugly mess. Your actions are such that this history of mine, in which you take such delighted interest, is taking on fabulous (in the true sense of the word) details that bear no relation to actual fact.

And no, jimmy dipshit, the wannabe ass-bandit @#$%&-looker was drunk, high, and doing everything but assaulting my wife while holding the hand of a female child who must have been all of five. I didn't need anything but the will not to pound him into the floor like the @#$%& tent peg he was, which is just about the way I'm feeling right now. Fortunately, while I have a temper, I also have self control. Do me a favor: continue taking post-midnight strolls in Gary, please. It's a lovely town, and yes, I've been there.

I posted about something of interest that happened in the course of daily events, nothing more.

Those who rely on the police to protect them will often be disappointed, and sometimes it is the police we need protection from, as those nations who have surrendered their weapons have often found. It surprises me to hear those who advocate "nuking" Iraqis for crimes committed by Saudis, primarily, then dehumanizing those who seek personal security in the responsible use of firearms. 'Just my sense of incongruity being aroused, or do others see the double standard?

I'm also curious how insulting a guy's personal appearance or that of his wife contributes to the argument for or against gun ownership, but then I'm interested in issue discussion, not personal attacks. At 57 I can see the end of life approaching so I don't really have time for such. I want to go where Hugh Thompson went, not where William Calley is going. Both used guns, but for different purposes. A hammer can build an orphanage or bash a skull. Neither is inherently evil, and yet both can be used for evil. Words can wound or heal, and here we choose to use them constructively or not.

Personally, I'd rather go where Hunter S. Thompson went. Yeah, Vegas.

BTW, you falsely attributed a quote to me.

Too late. She already did.


I love that image, and feel it has significant potential to contributing to world peace. I wonder if Sunny would mind me changing my sig. I ask you, can anyone, even Guitarman, contemplate the above and remain mad? Maybe I'll print that big for a sign at our next peace rally. I'm having trouble thinking of a caption though. Actually I have trouble thinking of anything with that image in front of me. It's like standing at the edge of the Grand Canyon for the first time. You've heard about how awe-inspiring it is, and you're prepared to have your breath taken away, and you think you're prepared for it, then you walk up to the edge and peer into the earth's most magnificent cleavage....

I went to Vegas on my way to the Grand Canyon. I prefer the latter.

When I got out of the service in 70, I completely quit thinking about guns. No problem with them though. In my neighborhood I should probably have one and have given it some thought just now.

Some people take the "civil" out of "civilian." As I read that link Styles admitted to backing down threats, not making any. The distinction is found in who made the threat first, and who responded defensively.

Haven't we all got more serious concerns than petty squabbles and feuds on piddly little mac forums?

Now, now, Keef, my good man. Wittle fuzzy oneball was understandably shaken at the prospect of losing his ONE REMAINING NUT in this near-danged death experience. His voice is high and shrill enough as it is. Can you imagine trying to get anyone to take your braying and prancing seriously when you've been completely eunichized? eye popping smiley

If a "giver of life" (like my recent aspartame-enhanced, Tourette's-suffering, pms'ng girlfriend), points a gun at you with her finger on the trigger, you might appreciate the experience better. I'd make damn sure the range had security cameras to record such behavior in the future, and report the woman's actions to management. That's dangerous and would have been considered justification for him to at least leveled his weapon at her, imho. That he didn't suggests a level of self-control few here exhibit. Basic gun safety courses teach never to point your weapon at someone you don't intend to shoot, so the threat was real. Put yourself in his shoes looking down the barrel pointed at your crotch, boyz.

Keef, who can pull anything out of context with his teeth, managed to miss the rest of the story …

Amazingly enough, I'm three for three on pointing weapons at people and not having to pull a trigger, which is even stranger still when one considers the fact that I spent from '95 to '98 schlepping a firearm in Philadelphia on a 40 hour basis.

Good day.

Awww, our precious wittle fuzzball is so gosh darn cute when he tries to pretend that he can read. Keef's big words must've gotten the little nutter all flustered and confused! He's scrambling to prove that he never FIRED HIS WEAPON AT ANYONE.

If only our wittle nut-cracker could comprehend the meaning of words like "threatened" and "pointing," he wouldn't be embarrassing himself by posting indignant refutations of non-existent charges. eye rolling smiley

Note that one guy is in the millitary and law enforcement, is empowered and in fact must carry his gun at all times due to his job.

Then notice that FuSty one nut carries at his leisure basically as a hobby and HAS pulled his gun and pointed it at un-armed people no less than THREE times.

You're amazingly dull. You can't even make an original post, and you have to rely on cherrypicking the artwork of others to get recycled laughs.

Don't give up your night job.

Incident One: A carjacker is waving a "folder" (a folding knife I presume, as most people wouldn't consider manila a threat) was trying to yank his door open with both hands.

Incident Two: Some well-connected jerks were riding his bumper, scaring his kids. Threatening to ram someone, causing them to lose control, or just crushing them should someone pull out in front of them is only "unarmed" if you don't consider a 5000# vehicle a potential weapon.

Incident Three: He rescued a woman being pursued by a knife wielding man, who then jumped into Styles car, presumably still waving the knife.

If any of you could have handled those situations better, and without a weapon, please enlighten me.

I'd defend you too, mick e, if I thought you were being criticized unjustly. I'm not familiar with feuds established outside this forum but see no reason why they need to be dragged in here. If you find fault with what someone has written here then by all means correct it, but leave the old and rejoice in the new.

Styles posted a story here, and if you find fault with his actions at the shooting range then by all means enlighten us as to how better you'd have reacted were an obviously inappropriately acting woman had pointed a loaded weapon at your crotch with her finger on the trigger, a twitch away from killing or grievously wounding you?

I have no interest in old feuds, some of which no doubt go back years, between anonymous pseudonyms who have nothing to contribute to discussion of the situation this thread originally described, but are focused entirely on retribution for past insults. This forum is devoted to "Friendly Political Ranting." If you can't observe that standard, then leave. Attack ideas, not personal appearances or the guy's wife. That's cowardly and despicable.

Looking down the barrel of a gun that's pointed at your crotch? Where did you say your head was situated?

Which head?

Actually I was referring to looking down the barrel in the same way one looks down a pool cue, assessing which way the stroke would send one's balls. It's not necessary to sight down the bore to determine at which part of your anatomy the barrel's aimed.
