    Guns make all martial training obsolete. (Judo instructor.)

    Because while guns make unarmed fighting impractical they are not involved in every situation and therefore make all martial arts obsolete.

    By your line of reasoning (i.e. your concern of "self defense"), the logical course of action would be to practice having a gun with you. Problem solved. Months/years of training would be negated by a 1/4 inch seven pound pull a person 5 years old or 150 years old could manage to figure out in about 5 minutes.

    If you talk about "self defense", your Judo instructor is right - especially when you consider most people don't floss even though flossing provides an effective "self defense" from the #1 killer: heart disease.

    Wow, **** me. Doesn't look utterly conclusive, but I will still allow that I am three sheets to the proverbial wind.
