a note to my loyal readers, based on my performance at the range tonight
Should you ever find yourself in a hostage situation where you’re being held around the neck like James Remar holds Eddie Murphy at the end of 48 Hours, and it’s 7 yards or under, I have a 97% chance of killing your attacker with a .45 Tac pistol, provided he stands still and acts like a paper target.
If he’s at 10 yards, on the other hand, your odds of getting hit in the shoulder are 2 in 10; your odds of getting hit in the chest and killed, also 2 in 10.
So. My advice to you, should you ever find yourself in that predicament at 10 yards out or beyond and reliant upon me to save you with a .45 ACP: yell, “grab your rifle, Jeff,” or alternately, try “run 9 feet toward me and fucking shoot this asshole!”
Then I can be a hero, and you can live.
Win / win!
