50 years ago there was a bit of advice in the West News...'When a man points a gun at you, knock him down. Don't stop to look if it is loaded, but knock him down and don't be at all particular what you do it with. If there is to be a coroner's inquest, let it be over the other fellow..he won't be missed...
