Some punk tried to rob the drive-through/minimart down the street from where I worked as a reporter. The owner/clerk was a vet who had a great big handgun under the counter, and who held him with his head on the counter until the police (and our photographer) got there.
It was classic.
Although I half expected to see one or two folks here chime in with the panty waist opinion that this guy used excessive force and that the kid should sue him. No need to name names...you know who you are!!!
This kid should have obeyed his elder.
The old man did everything he could without coming right out and saying, "Son, I'm gonna kick you in the balls."
Well played sir, I solute you.
Proof that the older generation may not be as technologically savy as the younger generation, but could definately whip everyone of their asses.
no one would I know on the left would ever begrudge someone defending themselves.
I'm asking for purely informational purposes.
I thought it was Hoorah...Or is that what you meant and just spelled it differently. I'm not up to date on military terms, but was just curious.
To be honest, the ARRRUUUUUUUUUGGAAHHH reminds me of one of those old old cars and when you press the horn it goes, ARRRUUUUUUUGGAAHHH. Is there another word used that I don't know about? (I'm sure there are several, but in this regard)
Must've touched a nerve.
Hmmmm, I wonder why?
He's lucky he didn't bump up against Kilvinsky's Law
There are several variations of spelling for the same sound. Marines during the time I was in basically said OOH-RAH! and it was spelled that way. The Army came up with HOO-YAH! from somewhere.
If you do the Marine version correctly it can be heard about two blocks away (my neighbors adore me!), and it comes from the gut and sounds like nothing anyone can spell.
The way the Col spells it, you would not hear the "G" annunciated.
Separate names with a comma.
