I can't reply to eraserhead, since he's on my ignore list. So in reply to him, yeah martial arts is great, and a handgun is a good backup. I'd hate to bring a roundhouse kick to a gun fight.

You're right, you shouldn't put yourself in a situation likely to be risky. Chances are you'll never need your firearm, though it is possible to be at your local gas station paying for gas when a gunman shows up.

I could have but not sure what you mean, really. I think it's a man raping a woman (or even another man) is disgusting. There is something wrong with him.

Assuming the gunman is close enough (as they'd have to be to carry out a rape) the martial artist will almost certainly win the fight.

I think shooting a gun at a gas station sounds like the best idea ever .

Hopefully your rapist doesn't know kung fu.


LOL you think shooting a gun at a gas station is going to make it blow up? Crazy, you watch too much TV. Not sure how they do it in the UK, but it's a store you go into an pay.

FYI: I've seen people smoking a cigarette over a gas can and the hot ashes fall off into the gas and it did nothing.

That might be because gasoline itself is not flammable. It's fumes are. You can put a match out in gasoline, although I do not suggest trying that.
