Phantom, SASS #54973 Posted November 27, 2013 Share Posted November 27, 2013 Perhaps a different topic that doesn't ask, "What's the Call" is in order(?). I understand why this issue continues to be debated. These aren't stupid people arguing what the rules state or what PWB's Wire forum call is or challanging PWB's capacity to make such a call. I think everyone respects PWB's oracle status and understands what the call is here, with PWB even referring back to the earlier topic. So, I don't believe that the debate has anything to do with the call. As I see it, the debate is this: Given the scenario that: A gunbelt with loaded weapons, hammer down on a supposedly empty chamber, disengages and falls off the shooter's body and strikes the ground with the muzzels pointed haphazardly. Then, the question is: Why are penalties not imposed in this scenario, while penalties are imposed in other scenarios, which are equally or even less dangerous than this scenario? The debate has nothing to do with the rules, in my mind, because the rules have been cited and the call has been made ... several times. It simply seems to me (and apparently others) that there are gaps in the logic of the rules or the interpretation of those rules (which in this case are for safety), as they relate to this real or hypothetical scenario. That's what should be addressed and resolved, in my mind ---EDIT--- rather than being shouted down. As I stated, I think this should be debated in another topic that is not concerned with, What's the Call. We know what the call is. So then...if someone falls, and their Revolvers (NOT WEAPONS), stay in their holsters...then the shooters should get a MDQ? Or some other penalty??? Seriously, I know you don't shoot and only post on the Wire, but what would be the difference between this and having a rig drop with the Revolvers (NOT WEAPONS!!!!!), safely in their holsters???? I'd talk to you about this in person...if you actually shot somewhere...but I guess the Wire is the only place where we can have this debate. Cheers!
