It seems to me here the underlying issue on this thread is pride. Pride has caused bad things to happen to us all.

I'm willing to have no pride if someone gets the jump on me with a gun. I'll risk handing over paper, plastic, diamonds, etc. versus going to meet certain death over whether or not I can "out skill" this thug. If it seems like the situation is not manageable to draw, I have no problem in turning over my fate to my Maker. He knows the outcome.

Quite possibly the finest first post I've seen.
