Comments: When Mountain Lions Attack

Please forgive me for quoting myself: "Gunfire or more advanced weaponry may be more appropriate, depending on the sort of animal you are confronted with."

There are all sorts of dangerous animals out there, and you should use the appropriate measures to deal with them.

Rabid squirrels? A stick ought to do.

Wild dog? A handgun should be sufficient.

Mountain lion? A rifle will do the trick.

Maniacal savage leader of terrorist network? Let me tell you about a little friend we like to call "Hellfire".

Thanks for the link!

Murdoc, I love following you and ACE back and forth on the weapons talk even if I lack the understand Paul has on the subject.

Unfortunately, my weaponry skills are limited to archery and sports guns but Hey! you worked in a reference to the Hellfire again!

Did you notice they spent a lot of time talking about the armed Predator during the Sept. 11 Commission hearings?

Both State and Defense are so obviously reading us to keep their fingers on the nation's pulse.

I figured you'd like the Hellfire reference. It occurred to me as I wrote that post that there are all sorts of dangerous animals out there, and that the same tactics usually apply whether they're four-legged or two-legged threats.

And we're all just a bunch of bloggers with opinions and a little too much time on our hands, but it State and Defense DID keep up with us, I've got to think they'd maybe see some things a bit more clearly than they seem to sometimes.
