Sorry Rhonda, that would be horrifying. Keep yourself armed in all situations. Take a class from Gunsite in Presscott AZ.
Remember the old saying, God created man, and Colt made them equal.
When I spent my time in MI in the army (1969-1972), I still had to qualify with an M-14 and later an M-16 even though I was an intelligence analyst sitting at a desk. Shot Expert on both. It's been a few years, but I suspect I can still put a hole in someone at 300 meters I still remember the kick from that M-14, but the satisfaction of dropping a target at up to 400 meters on the range when you could barely see it is something I'll never forget. Also not forgotten is a few decibels of hearing loss that resulted from record firing 90 rounds after I dropped my earplugs scrambling into the firing pit. I couldn't hear anything for about 24 hours but a ringing. Of course, later riding around in helicopters with no hearing protection finished the job. My exit physical revealed the damage and I've been collecting a 10% disabilty ever since. Would rather have my full hearing back though in lieu of the modest pension
Still waiting on my daughter and son-in-law to bring me an AR-15, shotgun, and a sidearm from Guam that they promised. Hopefully that will be this fall. Meanwhile, I've got the six dogs, my American Longbow, and a polycarbonate Bokken (Practice Samurai Sword) that makes a heck of a good club. I am pretty vulnerable, I guess, living alone out here on the ranch, but I don't think any criminal types would know that.
Love & Peace,

My old Piczo site seems to be gone, so no more Navajo Nation pics :(
