In my opinion, you can't be too careful. I have been in a few situations where I had to draw my knife, but each time the mere threat of razor-sharp steel was enough to persuade the attacker to back down, so I've never had to actually stab anyone.


that's unheard of here, well for the most part

Hmm, maybe from 70 feet, I could hit a squirrel, but probably not in the head, first time

I found head shots produced the highest kill ratios, so I trained myself to aim for the head and hit it. Most of the time I fired from within fifty feet, but I did score a few kills from as far away as seventy.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

That's pretty good. I don't know if my gun is powerful enough to kill from 70, unless i hit it in the head

That's exactly why I aim for the head, because if I hit elsewhere on the body it isn't powerful enough to do any significant damage. But a hit on the head always knocks them down on the first shot!
