Some individuals are very unlikely to have a gun accident, some are quite likely.
It depends on their behavior - no one else's.

Yes which is why I said statistically. Which you accept in every other instance except gun violence. This is a blind spot for you Chas, you have an emotional response to gun ownership.

Oh, horseshit. My view on statistics is consistent.

And you are ignoring everything I have ever said about gun control here. That's a tad disingenuous.

Or is that just your blind spot? Consider

Quote:If I said a vaccine would lower the chances of Hobbits baby from contracting malaria by 300% statistically you would not come back with a bunch of provisos.

The critical difference is that HobbitGirl has no control over the risks.

For some things we roll the dice, for others we get to mitigate risk.

I hadn't.

It's my policy to get well away from TTA gun battles pretty sharpish.

It seems to me that most often it's innocent people that get injured in the cross-fire.

Yes, well I'm just smart enough to know when I can and cannot safely speculate on something.

I had a couple of liver shots, but I think my groupings were pretty good.

RE: Getting my CCL tomorrow.
So are you all legal and stuff now?

You got me thinking again about getting a pistol, some training (since it's been a while) and then going for CCL.

I didn't think I should handle a firearm when still dealing with the upper body nerve damage but I think that's resolved enough now to be safe.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
