    For me I'll stick with my SIG P229's and MK25 I have on order.-Dick
    Well, I was mostly just saying that if one wanted a "Governor" type firearm, they could be fixed to look less "fugly"

    When I get back to Florida I get to choose between

    Rock Island Armory 1911


    and a SIG-Sauer P229 SAS that my sister-in-law might sell...


    Both are good firearms (and the p229 is used, so within my price range) but The Wife agreed to one "EDC" gun, and with the hopes of addinga new family member this next year, I'm afraid I'll have to stick to that... for now

    To get a self-defense instruction in a murder trial, most states require the defendant to meet both a subjective and an objective standard of fear.

Even then, the jury can find otherwise and convict the defendant. We prosecutors refer to that chain of events as, "one in hell and one in jail".....

    In re to Sub/Ob fear, Beware of "Imperfect Self-defense"

    "A person who acted in self defense with an honest but unreasonable belief that deadly force was necessary to do so could still be convicted of voluntary manslaughter or deliberate homicide committed without criminal malice. Malice is found if a person killed intentionally and without legal excuse or mitigation."

    In other words, like AF said, you may be legaly cleared for shooting someone, but still get tangled in a civil suit that they nail you in because you were afraid but someone else in your position might not have been... even if you win, -$,$$$,$$$.$$
    Personally, I'd rather get wrapped up in a court case than watch a loved one get assaulted in front of me and do nothing..

    Anyhoo, just my .2 about it... I suppose I'm just contributing to the so I'll shut up now and let us get back to showing off these "deadly beauties"!

    Your Dad's creation looks a bit like a Lyle gun. In the 1800s and early 1900s, Lyle guns were used by the Life Saving Service shoot lines from the beach out to grounded ships. Then people stranded on the wrecks could be hoisted ashore.

    Yeah, it sort of does. It's actually a 1/3 coehorn mortar. He made it that size so you could lob a golf ball with it. I just need to get it out in the open to fire it eventually...

    Well, I don't know much about women. I just know that I don't have the energy to handle more than one

    Not sure how I'd be able to coach them though...
    And these have been very good for business at our gun shop!

    The second piece of Legislation is known as the Castle Doctrine Law and removes the burden of proof of intent if you shoot someone that is in your residence or vehicle illegally while of course you are inside. This Law does provide for Civil immunity in this case.
    The Concealed Carry Legislation also allows anyone to carry a loaded unconcealed handgun in a vehicle.
    The third piece of Legislation removed the requirement for casing a long gun in a vehicle as long as the long gun is not loaded. Welcomed by hunters!
    In any event this trio of Legislation along with Wisconsin's own Right to Bear Arms amendment passed a few years ago provides for powerful tools in the fight against crime.
    The NRA and the WISCONSIN CONCEALED CARRY ASSOCIATION with Jim Fendry led the way and should be congratulated.-Dick
