if you can toss up a couple of soda cans with the hand that clears your garment, draw and hit both in the air with your .22lr, you're way ahead of terry or garand with a .45. :-) mainly cause you can probably get the attack to stop with just the sight of your gun. but also, many an attack is stopped with just miss, or a poor hit or with a "mere" .22. And the man who can do the above can hit the brain, if he must. A solid hit, anywhere on the head, even if it doesn't hit the cranium, is still quite likely to disrupt his activity for at least a fraction of a second, and that's all a skilled man needs to put the next one into an eye socket, ear-hole, or nostril.

Agree. Don't know how that would even be arguable.

Assumptions are dangerous things. If I've never seen what they're capable of, it's impossible for me to know what they're capable of. That's true of them, of me, of you, of everybody.

I've got a fair number of trophies and I know garand has a bunch of trophies. He competes internationally, so he's got me beat.

Never seen any of TerryG's, but that's exactly the same number we've seen of yours, if you think about it.

Thanks John, I'm just a dedicated shooter, there are people worse than me and people better than me. Honestly all it takes to shoot internationally is being willing to do the paperwork, have the time to travel and the money to do it. I've been crossing the US/Canada border for about 7 years to compete and I have had lots of fun and met a lot of good people to boot.

Melvin has never seen me shoot, despite the invitations to get together when I've been south. I consider this very cowardly on his part, of course so is beating up a dog, but I digress.
