Default Epic failure of the victim selection process

Chris Kyle

US Navy Seal and the most confirmed kills of any sniper is US history



The Universe Has a Good Laugh ę Stately McDaniel Manor

On a bitterly cold morning in early January of 2009, the war, in a sense, found Chris again.* What happened to him not far from his home outside Dallas never made the news, since the town involved didnít want the publicity, but the incident certainly would have made national headlines had a reporter ever gotten a tip about it.Chris was minding his own business, fueling his pickup truck at a gas station, when he found himself at gunpoint.* Two men holding pistols demanded his truck.* Law enforcement will usually advise you to give in to the criminal in a situation like this.* And thatís good advice.* But Chris took another route.* Very calmly and coolly, he sized up which of the men was handling his pistol more comfortably.* He put his hands up and told them he was going to reach into the truck to get his keys.* Then his hand went under his coat.* From a waistband holster, he pulled his Colt 1911.* Swinging the pistol under his left armpit, he gave each robber two .45 caliber Hydra-Shock hollow-points to the chest.* By the time the cops responded to the 911 call from the terrified lady who had locked herself in a car behind Chrisís truck, the matter was settled.* Elapsed time: about ten seconds.* The service stationís security cameras caught the whole thing.I pray for anyone whose life gets so desperate that he or she chooses to resort to a life of crime, but itís hard to resist a little cold laughter all the same: I mean, how unlucky a dumbass do you have to be to target a random guy for felony armed assault and find out heís killed more people than smallpox?
Well done Mr Kyle

Amen brother.... This is what the media does not want us to see...Why, because they want to scare us into consumption of whatever. Every 4 years its guns, every year its Hurricane season...Spend ,spend, and Beg us to go get prepared for it and dump your money into what you should already have in your home. THEY SCARE AMERICA INTO CONSUMPTION PERIOD

NOne of the Spec-Ops carry a Beretta. Most are carrying Sigs. 1911 is always a great choice.

As far as I know Rangers still use the beretta M9. I know for a fact we used it during the mid 90's

Im thinking of picking up an ATI, they are inexpensive and lots of good reveiws on them.......

"The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair."

Yep. I actually did a search yesterday and from what I saw it still said the beretta m9. Where were you stationed in the 80's?
