    Oh yes, I agree, it is never a situation that you would want to find yourself in.

    I own a road service which takes me to places good and bad at all hours of the day and night (truckers never stop). Shot a man who drug me out from under a truck at 2 AM. Actually before we had concealed carry in Arkansas. He shot at me standing over me and missed. Jackass held his gun sideways gangstyle. I shot him in the neck severing his spinal cord. Died on the spot. Suckiest night of my life, but at least I wasn't charged with anything (we had journey law). I agree with the man who said avoid it at all cost.

    Well, I'm sorry to hear that, that happened. Unfortunately, we live in a world where things like this happen everday, and if you had not had your firearm you very well may have been shot and killed, it sounds like you did what you had to do to survive, and that is your right.

    Sorry to hear that you had to take a life.

    I chuckled a bit a part of your story remembering about a week ago when I went to the range and at the station next to me on the line were two "dudes" with shirts to their knees, pants that started just above that and hats on at 45 degree "gang" style shooting some cheap looking semi-auto (I could not figure what brand) looked like .32 auto holding it "gangsta" and missing the target most of the time.

    However, I was impressed that they were paying for range time to play rather than just shooting up the street somewhere...

    Good gangstas? Their mama won't let them gangbang?

    Found a creative way to blow their "Christmas Cash". Guess they couldn't afford to upgrade to the usual "9" that's commonly referred to.

He had reholstered his weapon before exiting his vehicle. So, I beat him on the draw upon exiting and dialed 911 on the cell, so that everything was recorded. He said he was a Police Officer and ordered me to put away my weapon. He kept reaching for his weapon, and I warned him repeatedly that if he touched his weapon, I would put a 44. mag slug in him. Local constabularies arrived and it turned out he was an off duty police officer from another jurisdiction. They notified his superiors and sent him on his way with a warning. I was sent on my way also, without further incident as everything was recorded.

    2nd incident was in Alabama in April. I was harrassed at night for over 50 miles by a car with 4 young folks in it. When I finally approached a town where I had previously lived and knew my way around, I pulled off of the interstate, dialed 911 drew my weapon and ordered them to put hands where I could see them. Someone yelled, "He's got a gun!!!" and they sped off. When the local police arrived I gave them tag number and vehicle description. Officer asked if I had time to go with him to the registered owners home. I did. The girl driving had gone straight home and the car was parked in the driveway. When questioned, she told the story and identified her friends that were with her (2 girls, 2 guys). They were underage drinking in Chattanooga, TN and got the bright idea to harrass and rob an out of stater on their way home. With my statement and her confession, again I was shortly on my way.

    Before that, I had an incident in the early 80's with some dogs on a lonely road, that I had to put down while riding my motorcycle (Road had dead ended and I was turning around).
    Well it sure does sound like you have needed your weapon a few times. That was a smart move dialing 911 so that the encounter with the off duty cop was recorderd. It's absurd that they let him off with a warning, if a civilian would have done that it would have been a different story. Smart thinking on your part!

    Agreed, very smart. Here in Wisconsin, we have taken a liking to those little digital recorders and tiny mini cams. They only record a few hours or less but that is about all you'll need. I remember a line from the movie Thunderheart when Frank Coutelle tells Ray Levoi: "Get Tape!!!" So we do.

    I have never drawn a weapon since I became a permit holder.

    Back in 83, I got transferred to Naval Training Center Millington, TN. I crossed the river into Memphis and made a wrong turn off of I-40. I found myself in the projects with a U-Haul truck, towing a car. I came to a dead end and had to make about 17 attempts to get turned around. When I finally got straightened out, there were roughly a dozen angry young men blocking my exit. I put my Marine Corps camo cover on my head and then reached down for my .45. I held it up where they could see it, chambered a round, and then layed it on the dash. I then put both hands on the steering wheel to indicate that the next move was up to them. They stood there for maybe 30 seconds and then parted in the middle to let me pass.

    Against todays gangs, I think my actions would probably get me killed. I got lucky that day and it all worked out ok. If I had to do it over, I think I would just start driving slowly and use the truck as my weapon if things went bad.

  10. I was hiking in the woods with my wife who gasped when she saw, as I did. two large dogs appear in front of us, perhaps at 20 or 30 yards. As of almost it's own accordi my pistol came out, I did hold the muzzle up. Feral dogs can be very dangerous as they usually have little fear of people. Next I could see movement further back in the woods, people, the dogs owners,a couple out walking them. I turned sideways, to hide the pistol, as I reholstered. We smiled and wished each other a good morning as we passed by. Looking back now, I realize that I was a little too quick on the draw. If that couple had seen my pistol, things could of gotton real complicated as I would be rapidly explaining about the dangers of dogs running lose.

    Yeah, todays gangs are really bad, especially in Memphis, I live in Memphis, we have one of the highest crime rates in the Country, in 2006 we were ranked number two in the nation for rape and murder charges.
