Carrying a gun to a golf course, which I do from time to time when playing night golf, is only a way to protect oneself in he event of a real threat. The mini-bikers stealing my bag would not have gotten shot. I also wouldn't have walked more than a foot away from my bag if I knew they were around. However, if I was chasing after them and caught up to one and knocked him off his crappy little bike and then they all surrounded me and tried to pummel me for hurting one of their comrades, i would have shot the lot of them. if they were big enough to do me harm and they have the intent to do so, then they are big enough to reap the rewards of their decisions. I have zero problem shooting gang banger wanna-be types, I just hope 1 bullet does the job so they can't sue me.
Exactly, everyone here thinks I would have "capped" those guys on the bikes, not the case at all, my point was that in the future if something worse happend then I would be glad to have it. If I go and nothing happens then no harm no foul on bringing the gun but if something does happen that is worse than this case then I will be glad that I did have it and dead if I didn't have it. I knew that this sport is a very liberal sport and most people on a forum for DG would be anti-gun and I figured I would be in the minority so thank you Brian.
