    Of course if you had a silencer so you would not disturb the rest of the movie goers I would say you should have just shot him right there

    Just kidding, of course you did the right thing.

    Theater management generally involves the most senior member of the CPDT (Coke and Popcorn Distribution Team). Generally, they are under the age of 18, and are ill equipped to dispense proper change, let alone properly handle an unruly patron. You might get lucky and have some 20-something movie geek that still lives at home with his mother, and has never been on a date.

I would really like input and opinions, cause like I said I still go over it in my mind. I think I did the rite thing, but for some reason it still makes me feel bad. So heres the story, I took my family to the movies, it was a crowed theater and the previews were still showing. Now my wife, who's recovering from a massive stroke, and has lost most of her vision was sitting beside me, my 15 YR old son was on the pther side of her. there was this guy who had been on his cell phone was really loud and I thought was kinda rude, but thats my opinion. Anyway he decided to leave the theater we were in and go to a different one as I guess his friends were seeing a different movie. As he was leaving the isle, he stumbled on my wifes foot. She said she was sorry, and the man walked away, but he kept staring at my wife. now remember her vision is pretty bad, and she was trying to see the man in the dark. He stared for almost a full minet whitch struck me as odd. So I asked him if there was a problem. He answered me saying to stop my B.... Wife from staring at him. I replyed that she wasn't hurting anything and he should go on about his business. He got angry and Loud, he told me to make him go about his business. I replyed I didn't want any trouble and again to please go about his business. He replyed to me to get up and make him. Now here I am, crowded theater, Iv'e got my 1911 .45 in my shoulder holster cocked and locked. The man wanted me to get up and i felt if I did there would be a fight, and maby a killing. I chose to sit there,let him call me a coward and not get into a fight, I felt it wasn't really worth it, I just wanted to have Family Nite out. Now If i'd gotten up and trouble had started in the theater, someone would have gotten hurt, possibly an inocent bystander. I thought it was better to let him call me a coward and leave than to take a chance and stand up. I know if I'd stood up he would have attacked me, and the theater was the wrong place to defend myself with my gun. I beleive it was the responsible thing I did, but I really looked like a whimp in front of my son. I still feel bad about the whole thing, and would like other opinions to think about. Thanks for reading my story and look forward to you guys input. thanks again, Sam
    You know what I do in situations like that? I laugh at the person. They are showing themselves at the jackass they are and it highly amuses me. I also find that many people lose their anger when they are being laughed at by a group of people.

    I would not worry, as you really did do the right thing. You avoided a fight and showed yourself to be the mature person. If I were you, I would have stopped the conversation after the first exchange. You tell them you are not interested in talking to an idiot and ignore them. If the person attacks, then there was nothing you could do to stop it.

    Had a similar situation to yours, I had to do the same thing and I still have trouble swallowing that one, even after three years. It was the first time I ever walked away from a fight in my life, but it was also the first time I ever had a gun on me when someone was trying to start one with me.

    You did the right thing, even though it doesn't feel like it.

    You did the right thing, absolutely !

    If you had responded it could have gotten ugly if not terminal. Somethings the right thing to do is the hardest thing..
    I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6

  10. Hey man, you absolutely did the right thing. This clown should have been immediately reported on 911 for disorderly conduct to the local police. The cops take disorderly conduct pretty serious especially someone threatening people in a public family type atmosphere. If and only If he would have physically assaulted you or your family members would there be justification. I don't have to tell you that it would have been a HUGE mess and traumatic for all involved. It may have well cost you ALOT of $$$$$$$$$ also. Stay Cool
    You bet your ass I carry cocked and locked

  11. I really would like to thank everyone for their advice and support, when I first posted the thread, I wasn't really sure how ya'll would respond. Now that a lot of people have reassuared me, Im feeling a lot better. Thanks for your support. and really love this site. Sam, from Virginia.
