I'm curious to know if this comic is based on real life...

That might really work. Better than the "Alarm by..." stickers you can buy now.

Yeah, only a license and a credit card required to buy a shotgun in Texas. I had to have them show me how to load and unload it. Yee Haw!

Does the "D" stand for "Deadly"? Or "Darn it, keep a safe distance"?

Beware of Owner who's slightly more likely to shoot you than harm himself.

Posting that certificate would be brilliant. If I'm a B&E artist, I look at that in the window and think: "Oh, crap! If I go in there, the resident trigger-happy butthead will go for his gun and someone's gonna die… and there's almost a 50-50 chance that it will be me!"

Avoid the battle by making your opponent think you're too crazy to risk taking on. Sun Tzu and Ronald Reagan would have approved.

"Dual wield"; what a classic! I'm surprised you didn't ask about learning to quickdraw. Thank you, John Woo.

Obviously, no one around here was ever a member of the USMC. Then you would not only be a dual wielder, you would be a wielder to infinty. U.S. Marines cannot take a *safety* coarse because they are themselves the ultimate deadly weapon. Semper Fi Marines...

Judging by the last meal I attempted to make, I can say with confidence that I am easily dangerous enough to defend my household without the aid of a firearm (although, possibly a burnt-arm.)

My contingency plan for a home invader is to throw feces at him (preferably from the dirty diaper bin, but my own if necessary).

Oh, that last panel...

I learned everything I needed to know about dual wielding from Halo 2.

Double Mag Sec! Pa-da-PEW-pa-da-PEW!

Dual-wielding is over-rated for the average person. For it to be anything more than a waste of ammunition, you have to learn to shoot using your non-dominant hand and your non-dominant eye. Needless to say, it takes a *lot* of practice. The quickdraw lessons suggested in the comments would be far more useful to the average person. If you find yourself needing a weapon, the only thing worse than not having one is spending too long fumbling to get it out.
