<<Pit-bull of course....when will it end?

Unpredictable 'domestic' varmints...

Yet another reason why God invented the .38 and .357 handguns...>>

I appreciate your sympathies, but personally I think dogs are too fast to use a firearm on in an attacking situation. Too likely to shoot yourself or someone else in the confusion.

Personally I carry a stick these days to deal with dogs. If I expect to be around aggressive pit bulls, I carry my stick and a two pound hammer. My theory is that in an attack that way, I'd give the stick to bite on, and at that point I'd be controlling the head.

Turn the head and provide a crashing blow to the jaw and side of the head with the two pound hammer.

That's my theory, anyway.

I do find that carrying a stick, people who walk their dogs with a loose leash now hold their dog on a tight leash around me, step off the sidewalk or walk to the other side of the street. Don't have to be threatening at all.
