The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Bearing Arms
“When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail.”
I think most of us have heard the phrase, and the meaning is pretty clear. For gun folks especially, it’s a clear warning. The last thing you want to do is think your pistol is the only way to solve a dispute.
The problem, unfortunately, is that while many people seem to agree with the sentiment, their own actions don’t seem to show it.
While most gun owners probably don’t spend enough time at the range (and I’m looking in the mirror on this one as well), they spend even less time working on anything else.
They read blogs and watch videos on how to shoot. They might read up on how to avoid a conflict, as well, and that’s good.
However, they do nothing about the possibilities in between.post was originally published on this site
