    Exclamation Night Crabbing and Hoodlums

    Just got shot at by a 380 after I was crabbing with my fiance. Fortunate for the Juggalo that shot at us, he waited until we were leaving and I was 200 yards away leaving me no legal way to return fire in our defense(densely populated condos behind the group of 5). So as we were walking back to the car to go home I hear a small pop from a 380 come from the bridge. My fiance and I just looked at each other and agreed that it sounded like a 380, laughed, shrugged and kept walking and got in the car and left as normal. A 380 only lays down 180ft/lbs out of the muzzle, at 200 yards he may have been more intimidating with an arrow. And for the record there was no communication between my fiance and I with the group of drunken wannabe thugs the hour we were there. We were 50 or so feet away crabbing the other end of the bridge. I also overheard that he is out on bond and is awaiting an arraignment coming up next week for felony charges and lives with his grandmother. Drunken loudmouths for you. Why do people try to intimidate innocent people? Little did he know I possess a concealed carry permit and a 40 S&W everywhere I go sans gov buildings, things would have been bad for him had he assaulted me with the firearm while I was in range. The situation would have only been worse had I returned fire, bullets surely would have went through condominium homes in the background. Provided with those circumstances I felt it was best to continue walking and just leave

    Should've called the cops to drag the fool back to his cage!

    Why is that you suspect they were shooting AT YOU as opposed to discharging for hell of it? People shoot all the time around here and I don't think they are shooting AT me....

    I would have called the police if I could have better identified him, 3 were shirtless and looked alike from my distance. I doubted that it would hold up in court and I would have to testify a positive ID on the shooter from 200+ yards at night. I figured it was a lost cause. If I were closer and engaged in self defensive fire on the thug I would have certainly called

    I know they were shooting to attempt at intimidating us, I am positive. This took place in a very populated urban area as well, there is no "safe" or legal place to shoot for 20 miles

    I guess you don't know how the police work in the 757 area code. If they didn't see it it didn't happen. They are only interested in revenue here. I was an armed security officer in Norfolk for 2 years, once while on duty at a 7/11 there was an issue with 3 guys causing trouble in the parking lot, I called 911 to Norfolk Va Police Dispatch and they instructed me that they were understaffed on officers and that I would have to call my supervisor at the security firm for assistance with the violent individuals. I registered here just now to share what just happened tonight because I felt the need to share, not get flamed.

    Default Very poor judgement call on your part!!!!

    I call complete B.S. totally.... You took the CCW Class and have your CCW, YOU CALL THE COPS hands down!!!!! End of story. What if said "Bad Guys" stayed around and ended up hurting someone after you left??????? What do you tell the Cops then?????? "Oh it's no big deal" they were just seemingly drunk and discharging what you knew to be a .380 from 600 Feet away.

    You must have incredible hearing and knowledge as well, except for calling the Police (That would be too LOGICAL). Someone like you doesn't deserve a CCW if you don't think about your fellow Man/Woman.

    Very Lame!!!!!!

    It doesn't take incredible hearing to roughly identify handgun calibers. This is the ghetto, 380s and 9mm hipoints are a plague. You must live in a safe place where people have morals. Here its grade D low class citizens that drain the welfare dry. I believe they have a stigma for such, some refer to such low caliber individuals around this area as a thing called trash, aka criminals. The residents who live at the place that it happened can call the police. Are you aware of how many gunshots are reported in this area daily? Look at any of the Hampton Roads news websites and see how many people get murdered here daily. My experience was a drop in the bucket at what goes on. Trubiet, you truly sound like a nieve sheep. What bubble do you live in? POP

    what does police staffing have anything to do with you calling them to start a record of illegal activity? first post, suspicious name, ridiculous story...gotta agree with the post above me
