    I did that once. Difference was I used my feet to shoot. I guess if you want to make it easier you can use your hands.

    This thread has inspired me to finish my application for a premises permit. They say the NYPD usually takes 8 or 9 months to approve them, so come April or May, I should have something on topic to add to this thread.

    Is a permit necessary in NY/NJ to carry one of those gun-like Tasers?

    Those are banned. So far as I know, you can't even get a permit for them.

    one little bit of advice - do not break into the house of that guy. anybody who can fire 12 shotgun rounds in a second and a half, and does skeet shooting with golf balls, I would avoid.

    ed, those have all of the faults and none of the benifits of a handgun. you would be better served with the right gas, or an expandable baton.

    Yes, but how would he fare against a BJJ practitioner? [​IMG]

    What is this gas you speak of young man?

    I'm not totally against a gun as I would have no issue blowing away someone who was causing a threat to me and my family, I just would not want to deal with all the subsequent headaches and worry. Something that would incapacitate someone temporarily is fine and if it causes them to wet their pants or release their bowels, that would be an added bonus [​IMG]

    no question - everybody knows that they don't teach skeet shooters ground work, and there is nothing in the world, including twelve 12 guage rounds at short range, that can stop a bjj practitioner, from shooting. [​IMG]

    Thanks. I'll have to have one of my Jersey cronies buy it since they do not ship to NY. Of course, I have no intention of carrying or using this product within NY borders. [​IMG]


    ed, just a disclaimer - the idea of gas is not to end a fight, it is to create a situation where the attacker is extremly preoccupied. all movies to the contrary, almost nobody will continue to fight when hit with a good burst of gas, but they don't go to sleep, either. but then you have a massive advantage over him, espectially since you just want him to go away. a small basball bat in the house is the perfect complementary product to a canister of gas - once a person is that preoccupied, hitting a home run with his knee is pretty simple stuff.

    A .45 ACP round works pretty well after gas as well. That's one of the reasons I have area pepper spray also.
