2K5 325i what load (2, 2 3/4, 3?) and number (slug, buck, #3,4,6,8 whatever) was your friend shooting in the 12ga?
That sucks that he got sued.

Macguyver rocks.
Did you mean MacGyver?

I don't know. He is more of a family acquaintance than a friend... but he is one of the most intelligent men on hunting rifles and shotguns that I know, so I assume between 00, 0, 2, and 2 3/4ths. He wouldn't fvck around with something like birdshot. Although if I remember correctly, I believe the shot was at quite a distance, and the pattern proved nonlethal. This was a long time ago, but he still speaks that he will never make the same mistake again .

Sucks.

In my last experience, the SMG has been brandished, we carried it unconcealed and it's visible from any would-be attacker, but did the Tribal people know what a "Rifle" means? Nope, they were clueless.

You don't anyhow shoot people, that's why I said "SOME OF THE TIME, firing a warning shot is enough to scare them shitless"

If you're going to draw, you better fvcking shoot the target!
Spoken like true cold-blooded murderer. Have you ever shoot someone down before? Have you ever taken out someone lives before? It's not as easy as you thought to be. While everyone in internet could be acting like a real hard-ass, in real-life, things could change.

Warning shot is aimed at the sky. It's not random shooting that might hit someone else :tsk I'm not talking about gang war or in the actual warzone.

Read above. Draw without intent to fire, get shot, and then he takes your gun and has X # of more shots to continue his rampage with.
Maybe you didn't read my post carefully, I said "Some of the time". If you recognize the level of threat, why not? The police who assisted me could've taken someone's life but he didn't. Some of the time, warning shot give a clear message to the would-be attacker that we have a real weapon and we are going to use it if you don't back off.

But if let's say the situation where an attacker is also brandishing a gun, then we would have no choice but to shoot to incapacitate the attacker.

Does a bear know that you are holding a rifle? SOME of the time, brandishing a gun is not enough. DOES tribal people in deep jungle know what a rifle is and what it can do?

You need to read my post carefully. Reading is fundamental.

wtf. so all you who are saying that "if you draw the weapon you better shoot"

so everytime that a police officer points a gun at a suspect he should shoot?
and i had a security guard at an apartment complex draw a gun on me because he thought i was breaking into a car.

My mistake. I forgot we were talking about tribesman breaking into my house with bows and arrows.

In fact, I have absolutely no idea how to handle that situation.

Bet this guy wishes he had better protected his home and owned a gun:

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/...=mostpop_story

I honestly don't understand how anyone with ANY sense of reality (what dream world do they live in?) can sleep inside their home with no means to protect themselves. Everyone thinks 911 or their ADT alarm system will save them

You won't hear about many self defense stories in the mainstream media, because their agenda is to demonize gun owners and push their anti-gun ideology. A lot of these incidents never get reported to police, a gun is shown or hand is put on gun to draw and whatever was going to happen ceases with no shots fired. Then the thugs move on to easier prey.

In Indonesia, private citizen is not allowed to have gun.

Instead, we can hire armed police to guard our home 24/7 and it's not expensive.

I paid 500 USD per month for the security.

Do as you please my friend, here in South Carolina if you point a gun at someone or fire your warning shot and they want to take you to court you can expect to be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

I just caught this. What kind of moron fires a "warning shot" into the air? Why would you fire a gun not knowing what your bullet is going to strike? If you are to fire a shot you should fire it into the ground. I'm not going to say you are because I don't know you, but you really sound like a complete idiot.

And is it better to shoot someone and take out his life instead?

different place, different law. taking someone else's life is the last thing on my mind.

So you sound like some hard ass that pulls a weapon on everyone that pisses you off just to scare them off. Like everyone else said on this thread, use it only if your life is threatened. So back to your question, yes if my or my family's life is threatened I do intend to take their life instead of them taking mine, or me facing charges to spare that scumbag's life. And I'm talking about someone approaching me with a weapon with intent to use it, not someone threatening to kick my ass if I don't give him my wallet.

Nope, you remain the idiot. Because I never endorsed firing a warning shot. You are the one that wants to scare everyone off

I gave you my experience, and based on my experience, brandishing a weapon is not enough to deter these guys. We don't want to take out clueless attacker's life. They don't know that they would die if they continue their attempt to kill us with their primitive weapon.

Generalization is the one of the worst thing in argument. If I'm a hard ass, I would have endorsed shoot to kill.

Did you read my experience? my life was threatened because some tribal people AIMED their crossbows towards us, they were clueless and they thought we were violating their territory. Instead of taking out someone's life unnecessary, we better scare them off away.

Don't assume every situation must be dealed with the same tactic.

another generalization attempt. I didn't say I want to scare EVERYONE off.

please read carefully again, and I do really hope you never fire into the ground. I can't imagine if the bullet ricochet to one of your friends.

Going to back my fellow South Carolinian on this one.
I mean come on...the first warning is the door being locked etc. Warning shot =
Sure you could load a blank as the first shot..but why? A live round as a warning is dangerous....and if you are in your house where are you going to put the warning shot? Do you live alone? If you draw your weapon you use it. If you want to yell "get out of my house" instead of shoot first fine...but a warning shot is dumb, dangerous, and ridiculous.

(I posted late...aka before reading page two...don't take this as attacking you...)

That is a very unique situation indeed, but I agree with the way you handled that, but I guess we all tend to relate situations to our individual lives. I have a liquor store in a questionable part of town so I am more likely to have some gang bangers come in here and try to rob me at gunpoint that have some tribal people come in with bows and arrows.

I only fire my weapon at the shooting range into targets in front of a berm.
