RE: [RC] Guns with Blanks (was: Folsom Lake Accident) - Mike Lewis

Agreed.  If you point at something, you'd better be prepared to kill it.

My fear would be that the other guy would have a pistol too... that wasn't
loaded with blanks.  No sense bringing a 2 pound club to a gunfight, eh?
Doesn't work too well from more than an arm's length away.

They won't kill unless it's point blank but sure
?will hurt within 10 feet but not kill.

Since rule number one of proper gun handling is NEVER to point a gun at
somebody unless you are prepared to shoot them with it, I simply do NOT
advise this.
?
A gun with blanks is okay for theater, is okay for pointing at and shooting
balloons, and is okay for the purpose of desensitizing a horse to the sound
of gunfire, but it is most definitely not something for pointing or shooting
at people.
?
The reason for not pointing a gun at somebody unless you are prepared to
shoot them with it (and by definition, a gun loaded with blanks, or even an
unloaded gun, is not one prepared for shooting with), is that you might just
have to.? 
?
Pointing a gun at somebody escalates the situation to that of deadly force,
and when you escalate the situation to that of deadly force, you had better
be ready to use deadly force or risk having it used on you.
?
You point a gun at me, you had better shoot me with it, or I will wrap it
around your head.? And I won't stop to ask if it is loaded with blanks.
