    It is.

    And, apparently, ECA is the only person in the western hemisphere for whom it doesn't work...

    Again, I don't care what you believe, and I'm not trying to convince you of anything. Do what you need to do, and I'll do what I need to do. If the proverbial excrement hits the fan, I'm confident you'll be wishing you'd been better prepared...

    Sure it doesn't.

    Why can't you get it to work? Too many moving parts?

    Is a Colt Govt Model .360 more powerful than a Glock 17?

    As I already said...I am a gun owner. You seem to have a habit of making incorrect assumptions

    Isn't the Glock 17 a 9mm? Based on that I would say the Glock's the more powerful handgun...

    Yeah, sure you do.

    Having a gun and having the will to use it are two vastly different things.

    I'm confident you lack the latter...

    Because there is too much in the water. So it's not a matter of "not getting it to work". Insult duly noted.
    Trust me...I would MUCH rather use a brita type container instead of buying water.

    Wait until the first of April when EBT cards get funded but the shelves are bare.

    Ah...so you don't know me but you somehow know I wouldn't use a gun to protect me or my family? Based on your assumptions it sounds like you are triggered.

    You essentially said I was lying about seeing a fight break out in a grocery store, so why on earth do you think I would care if you believe that I think you're a coward?

    OK. I was just curious. I don't know much about guns.

    Right?

    Having lived in earthquake and hurricane prone areas all my life, being prepared is second nature. I've had people tell me I'm crazy for stocking up the way I do on food, water, batteries, etc. Hell, I even have a back-up generator for my back-up generator. But people insist it's a waste of money.

    But, who do you think they came running to when Hurricane Matthew hit?

    Not much different compared to the newest technical leader in handgun rounds - the amazing FN 5.7....

    Yeah, it happened.

    I guess there was someone there filling their entire cart which as much meat as they could. The chicken shelves were damn near barren, and I guess someone took exception to the fact that this one woman (yes, it was a fight between women) was hoarding. I heard raised voices, but didn't really pay them any mind. I turned only after I heard one woman scream "F***ING C**T!" As soon as I turned this woman landed a solid blow to the left jaw of the hoarder.

    Security came over and handled the situation.

    And I never did get any chicken...

    The Glock 17 will hold 17 rounds also. I have Glock 17 mags to use in my Glock 19.

    Last year Ruger introduced a handgun which will carry that same round.

    The downside is that the ammunition is somewhat more expensive than, say 9mm. The upside is that the Ruger is about $800 less than the FN 5.7...

    Apologies.

    No, they're not all I have.

    They're all you're worthy of.

    I think it's funny how you feel completely justified in suggesting I'm lying but, when I do the same to you, you get your panties in a bunch and whine about insults...

    Crickey that’s dope. Given your aptitude with the lens it’s a bit surprising ya didn’t catch it. What’s particularly worse about this is that it wasn’t even in public. These were fellow service members or family thereof going at it!? Man, cray cray stuff....

    They were dependents (that's how the military refers to "family").

    And I was grocery shopping, not shooting!

    During the same visit, a woman and son were shopping. The son asked his mother if they should be some particular item.

    I sweat to God her response was "It's food. Get it!"

    I chuckled a bit at that one...

    The difference of course being that you started with all of the incorrect assumptions. Don't dish it out if you can't take it :D

    You don’t know for sure do you that they were both dependents? One or the other or both could have been veterans. How were you there? Retired vet yourself? 20+ years in the service is a long haul, my 4 was tiresome enough. But then again my civilian life has been a bit of a slog as well.
