Out of the Blue

After a few days using those belly belts to control the Gunnar-man's marking have been successful at keeping him from peeing on the stove, though it's not for lack of trying: Leaving him to his own devices results in a wet "diaper" every time. I'm hopeful that he will eventually grow weary of failing to mark the stove and/or walking around in a soggy belly belt, but so far that's not the case, and with his remarkable adaptability, this may never happen, but at least we have the mess under control for the moment, and that adaptability is showing through in just how little he is bothered by having to wear it.

It is VERY accurate. Ask any law enforcement, military, or other similar profession. Doesn't really matter if it is humble or not. I don't go waving it around, I posted a link. Never even have brought it up before, and I don't go bragging. You wanna jump on my shit? It doesn't bother me one bit. I am proud of what I do, as are my peers. The studies done in regards to sheep, wolves, and sheep dogs are numerous. I stand by my statements.

No one jumped anything. I don't prod you, I don't know you, you're some random internet person who means nothing to me outside of the text they post. Sometimes I agree with you, other times I don't. I read the link, there were no links to any studies in it, just a vague set of societal classifications that I don't agree with. I shoot with cops and soldiers at the range and competitions all the time, they are made up of the same moral and social archetypes that the rest of us are.

I like to think that most cops, soldiers, EMS, firefighters and other public servants feel a duty and honor to serve. They aren't warriors bred to fight evil wolves or some other romantic notion. They are normal people who choose to do these things and that is what makes them worthy of respect in my mind.

You shoot with cops all the time and you've never encountered the sheepdog analogy? You're either full of it or you shoot with Barney Fife. That analogy is so common among LEOs that to not hear it ever means you're not talking to LEOs. Hell, I know many civilians that consider themselves sheepdogs because they would jump in to help even though others wouldn't. Many trainers push that same analogy during their courses.

I'm not even going to attempt to respond to the argument against carrying a gun. You can believe what you like, it doesn't bother me one bit until you try to push your ideology on me.
