    What if said bike bandit is a bikeforums reader?

    That'd be interesting.

    Was this bike locked to the bike racks at your school? If so, did you use a cable lock, a U-lock, maybe both?

    I would like to hear that you got your wheels back. Pepper spray sounds like a plan I'd employ. Maybe bring a couple of swords too.

    "roadraced motorcycles and bumped shoulders at 195mph, crashed at 155mph, free-climbed a 90ft ledge, swam a class 5 rapids and picked a fight with a group of 4 guys (and won)."

    remember, throttlejock was tough as nails and nearly let us down. don't be like him.

    good luck. roll hard.

    Agreed.

    And just remember, if you end up fighting him, a bunch of dudes on the internet have your back.

    I'm Irish. I'd get in a fight over a lukewarm coffee or an untied shoe.

    anyone else find it odd that both threads have nearly identical topic titles?

    Actually that's not true at all. Within 15-20 feet a blade wielder is statistically advantaged over a ****** holder in regards to surviving the encounter. I've got an FBI study on it I can send you.

    Also, pistols are incredibly hard to kill someone with, the FBI documentation suggests pistols as only last resort defensive weapons and that agents in the field should always use should fired weapons when they have the opportunity to. They're just safer.

    The only way you will kill someone with a ****** is if you hit them in the heart or head. If they're moving rapidly from side to side with a katana, odds are you're not going to be able to do this. Especially if they wave the katana in a fashion that deflects the bullets.

    Or they just slice the bullets in 2 so that both halves miss their face.

    I buy that 15 foot thing. Local cops just shot a guy for coming within 21 (I think) feet of them, at which point, they were justified to defend themselves. Did I mention his knife? He had a knife. I bet a katana is like 25 feet, and if you exhibit ninja skillz while wielding a katana, they just shoot you whenever.

    i bet the guy has more stolen bikes, and that's why he doesn't want you going to his house. follow him home and liberate the rest with your crew.

    Actually I didn't make that up. Someone with a knife is statistically better off vs a ****** within that range.

    Pistols have much lower velocity than a ***** can produce, and it's a challenge in many cases for the projectile to reach vital organs through tissue at angles. So if someone is shooting a ****** at you do the 45 degree angle myspace pose and run at them with something sharp zig-zagging.

    Odds are you can gut 'em, maybe catch a ****** round in the shoulder and flee the scene.

    Then you gotta bust a terminator manuever and get the bullet out.

    Then you have sex with a couple super models.

    Good knives are also much cheaper than pistols, and they come with infinite ammo. Not many ******bags willing to shoot at someone in public have the necessary practice to be capable of actually doing it. Moving targets with pistols is hard, go to an IPSC match sometime and try it out.
