All have to remember there are the same problems with BCs as there are with GSDs, BC just aren't as opinionated (loudmouths) like us GSD people (don't hit me). :twisted:
But seriously, if you compare a showline BC to a malinois (who don't have a serious problem YET), then yes, the BB gun vs M80 is a VERY good term. But what people REALLY need to be told is the DIFFERENCE in the drives. Yes, BCs (herding line) can have EXTREME drives, and aren't for the typical dog owner (IMO), but these drives aren't like a Mali's.
Since I've worked with the extreme drive dogs with both breeds, to compare apples to oranges, I would have to say Malinois would be more dangerous in the wrong hands than a BC. Yes, I've seen a BC rip a man's face wide open from eye to jaw. BCs are destructive, yes. But physically compare the two dogs and you can tell the Malinois, by sheer virtue of larger size and weight (as well as some having incredibly longer teeth) they are just more potentially destructive.
