Re: My forum pet peeve: "I never got in a fight - the ultimate self-defense!"

Kevin, there is little difference between the "last resort" and your "redlines". I get your point, and absolutely agree that many people will choose a last resort that is simply too late. Your redlines and mine may be very close and very similar - I suspect they are, given our similar histories. I strongly believe that any individual needs to consider where his redlines are in the cool light of day and not in the heat of the moment.
