    ..last night the doorbell rang at night. Answered the door, with my hand on the Steyr. I open it and see a black lab wagging his tail, and what doesn't immediately register as my off duty cop neighbor with a Beretta 92FS tucked under one arm, and a tupperware container in the other hand. I pulled my shirt down over the gun and stepped outside to talk to him. Apparently someone jacked an older Kawasaki from the complex about a block from where my V Star is parked. He was cool enough to give me the heads up to lock my bike up. Turns out there was a witness, as the cop was taking the stolen motorcycle report, some guy comes up and asks the cop if he was taking a stolen bike report. The guy apparently watched them walk the bike to a truck and take off. I interrupted the cop to express my fervent desire to ever witness some shit like that. He tapped the butt of the Beretta and agreed. I told him I'd leave him some if I got there first. :o

    +1 for good neighbors.. especially armed ones.

    So you both want to kill a few kids who are stealing a motorcycle?


    Another +1 for the gun owners cause.

    Yeah, you wouldn't go to prison for shooting someone trying to steal your bike.

    Yeah, I say fair game man.

    If they your TV, let 'em have it. The contents of your safe? Let 'em have it.

    There are too many laws restricting criminals... it's such BS.

    You live in the only state that lets you do that legally though. Most states you have to prove that someone has the means or intent to kill you or cause grievous bodily harm. Or forced sexual penetration :mb:.

    There are probably more states that have a castle doctrine (or are very close to it) than there are commie states that don't allow self-defense.

    Oh yeah I forgot what castle doctrine meant :uh:. But in this case if someone is stealing a bike off an apartment property you wouldn't be making things easy for your attorney.

    Which is total BS, IMO.

    Having had a bike stolen before, if I were to catch someone in the act I'd prefer using pliers and a blowtorch over my gun.

    You sound like you like inhabiting the shallow end of the gene pool.

    If you ever do need to shoot a criminal, it's smart to have a few catchphrases memorized.

    I feared for my life
    I felt I was in immediate danger
    The subject appeared to be advancing towards me.

    You're looking to establish ability, opportunity, and jeopardy.

    Sounds more like he wants to defend someone's property if given the opportunity to do so.

    umm, you live in an apartment complex

    you can't roll like that, you need to own property

    yes I understand renters rights and all that crap, but seriously, if I am your neighbor, and let's say I borrow someone's bike, or I miss payments on mine, and someone is repo'ing it, maybe even a family member of mine

    you're going to shoot them?

    If you don't want to get killed, don't steal other people's stuff. It's pretty simple.

    How dare you harbor malice toward an innocent criminal! All wanted was to get a free motorcycle. Poor guy.

    This from someone who got his bike jacked? Yes, I might draw down on someone I don't recognize getting on a friends bike... especially at 0245 in the motherfucking morning.

    In some states you don't need that. Preventing the commission a felony is justification for use of deadly force in NM.

    Plus, if you're borrowing the bike, presumably you'd have the key...

    That is completely different than someone stealing a parked bike when nobody's near it.

    yep, i didn't want to shoot the guy...i just wanted him to get a job and leave my property alone

    he wasn't threatening me or harming me, unless you mean financially....but if i drew a gun on everyone who did that, well, i'd be out of bullets
