At the worst, they face some gang member who can't hit the side of a barn with a 9mm.
The back of an Australian disagrees.
Having policed the "ghetto" and the outlands I agree. Most bangers can't hit the broad side of a barn with an SKS. The neck with a scoped 30-06 can shoot the a$$ off a gnat after a half case of beer.
Some places are like nothing most on this board have ever seen. Reality can be a real bastard compared to theory, especially where the rubber meets the road.
