TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia spends a lot of helping us examine the issue of ballistic self-defense. We tend to focus on issues surrounding opportunistic crime: robberies, home invasions, mugging, your federal income tax bill, etc. But there are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in our philosophy. In other words, what about people setting out to kill you? What are the odds that you’ve pissed off someone to the point where they want your guts for garters? Any psycho-babes lingering in the mists of your personal history? How do you protect against that kind of threat? Do you? Enquiring minds want to know.
