I'm Anthony.
I'm from New Mexico but currently live in South Dakota.
I'm a SSgt in the USAF.

And I'm convinced that I'm in a perpetual state of dreaming and that you are all mere fabrications of my own psyche created solely for my amusement.

That's how I feel about AR's.
They're like Honda Civics; some are more tricked out than others, but everyone and their mother has one so they're nothing to get real excited over.

I own one and it's nice, but I wouldn't lose any sleep about it if I sold it either.

So I finally found the rifle I had been looking for since 2010.
She's a bit over the top and ridiculous, but that's part of her charm.

On the street, I run a check list in my head.
1. Can I avoid a situation altogether? If an area is notorious for being a bad place to be, don't go there.
2. Can I diffuse the situation? Talking down a situation is often the best option so long as you aren't put in harms way in doing so.
3. Can I call the authorities and have them respond in time? It's somebody's job to handle these things; if they can do so, let them.
4. Am I able to escape? There's no shame in living to fight another day.
5. Brandish. Many will change their mind at the sight of a gun barrel.
6. Pull trigger. If every step has failed this far, I'm likely legally justified.

At home, it's much shorter.
1. Brandish and tell them to leave.
2. Pull trigger.

What about revolvers though?
They have been in use by nearly every military and police force in the world and I can't think of any of those having a manual safety.

I am starting to get the hang of Euro-style safeties however, since I've been practicing with my girlfriend's Bersa .380. Though I primarily treat the safety more as a decocker out of habit, I'm still training myself since I'm forced to flick it forward to shoot it. With enough practice on this style, I may decide to pick up a Beretta 92 for my next Wonder-9. It'll still never replace my Sig however.
