I think you and I have a different definition of “cool”.
There is a time and a place for self-defense, but you shouldn’t go looking for a fight, and I would prefer to never need to use a weapon to begin with.  Self defense or not... That brief moment of “cool” isn’t worth the years of legal troubles when the attacker or their family sues you in civil court because you injured them in an unconventional way.

I wasn't talking about looking for a fight.  As a transgender person, I get enough of that as it is without having to look for anything.  But again, my sling would not be my first choice anyway.  I was being mostly sarcastic about the whole thing, so I'm not sure why you're taking it all so personally.

Not personally... seriously. I am probably one of the least serious people on this forum, but self defense is not a joke. Deploying deadly force against another human being is not something to ever call “cool”.

   Welcome from New Jersey, SlingingBri.  I shrunk your ginormous pictures for you.  I use MS Paint.  It's a small, simple, easy to use program.

Thanks!  I didn't realize how large they were going to be until I saw them, then I thought it was just my phone where I was viewing everything.  I'll definitely try to reduce any future picture sizes Smiley

  I can't reduce them on my phone.  I have to use my computer.
