Ben G. replied to Louis S's discussion Packin' Heat (Or, why do you carry a handgun?)
"Love the Ruger LCP. Small, but it will do it's job if you do yours. I'm not really sure how Ruger got a gun the small not to kick like a son-of-a-gun, but they sure did."

Ben G. replied to Louis S's discussion Packin' Heat (Or, why do you carry a handgun?)
"Why do I carry a gun? Because a cop is too heavy. Because I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.  Because the bad guys have them. Because I would not be able to live with myself if something happened to someone I love while I was…"

Ben G. replied to AZDuffman's discussion Is President Putin Manly?
"I think that a lot of people respect him for being a strong leader, as well as an avid outdoorsman. Policies aside, he is all man. There are many things in which I am opposed to Putin, but as I stated before, every strong leader has his/her…"

Ben G. replied to AZDuffman's discussion Is President Putin Manly?
"You can't argue with the fact that he has won several high-level Judo matches. Some of his manly exploits may have been staged (such as tagging the tiger, etc), but he is still very much the outdoors type.   As much as I do disagree with…"

Ben G. replied to Todd Serveto's discussion When Did Sin Stop Being "Exceedingly Sinful" In The Churches? in the group Christian Men
""sitting around pointing fingers at society and screeching out its sinfulness isn't advancing Christianity"   I beg to differ. Sometimes people need that "voice crying in the wilderness" to wake up and do something…"

Ben G. commented on Lightbringer's group Martial Artists
"I trained at a dojo that taught Jui Jitsu, Karate, and weapons (several different arts mixed in there). One monthly price got you into as many or few classes as you wanted. I wasn't there to compete, but simply to learn how to take care of…"

Ben G. replied to Morgan Land's discussion Firearms for the unfamiliar
"You can get a very reliable starter shotgun for pretty cheap (about $230, give or take). Mossberg 500s are great, and I plan to get myself one in the near future. Very customizable once you get comfortable with shooting it the way it…"
