Liberal vs. Conservative vs. SouthernerDougSloan

The difference Between Liberals, Conservatives and a Southern Man.

Question: You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife,
and charges.

You are carrying a Glock .40 and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?

Liberal Answer:


Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!

Does the man look poor or oppressed?

Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

Could we run away?

What does my wife think?

What about the kids?

Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?

What does the law say about this situation?

Does the Glock have an appropriate safety built into it?

Why am I carrying a loaded gun and what kind of message does this send to
society and my children?

Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?

Does he definitely want to kill me or would he just be content to wound me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he

was stabbing me?

This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a
few days to try to come to a conclusion.

A southerner would not be walking, he would be driving his pick-up. Also he would be using an S&W, and where are the rest of his kids?

Born and raised in the south I is.

Glock 27? Must have been, because that is the only Glock chambered in .40S&W that has a nine-round capacity magazine. (Count the "bangs" above!) The other Glocks in .40 (G22, G23, G24) currently feature ten-round magazines (or 10+1 if you want be be picky.) So, it is possible that he could have fired ten shots before slide lock (or "click", in this scenario) and reload. Optimally, our Man would have had some pre-AWB magazines, in which case he could have fired up to 13 or 15 shots before dropping his first mag, depending again on his model of Glock.
Also, wad cutters are a no-no for any Glock (has to do with the polygonal rifling), and aren't a reasonable personal defense load regardless. The Win Silver Tips are ok, but were it me, I'd go with the 165-grain JHP Speer Gold Dot, or a 155-grain Federal Hydrashok.
But what do I know....

Texan- empties Glock, pulls out Walther PPK backup in ankle holster and empties that, then gets sawed off 12 ga out of pickup and delivers coup de grace. (Optional addition of a few shots from Lady Smith and pepper spray by wife just to be safe.) Remember the Alamo!.

the Sheriff shows up and takes the corpse to Huntsville for a lethal injection. Can't miss that.
What a clever and deep analysis! -nmfiltersweep
