    My wife would be absolutely livid if I escalated an insult to an altercation. Had some problems early in our marriage because of exactly this sort of thing. She is of the opinion that MEN don't play those sort of games. Real men avoid a fight except for self defense and the defense of others. I'm all grown up now. I've always been able to take care of myself when necessary, but it isn't often necessary.

    Great answer!

    My wife is ten years younger than I, and I'm pretty sure if that happened, I'd need my gun to protect the guy so SHE didn't kill him.

    I remember one day when we first bought the house we're in, she went to the store in a snow storm, and took the baby (probably 4 years old) with her. Two high school boys threw ice balls at her car a block away from home, and scared her so bad when they hit the window she skidded to a stop on the side of the road, jumped out, chased them down til she caught one, sat on his back and rubbed his face in the snow while smacking him on the head.

    When she told me this my heart sank. I thought "great. first month in our new house and we're going to get sued and lose it." She's a 5' 8" hottie and very slender.

    Just walk away.

    I'm not going to try to quote Massad Ayoob, but paraphrase. If you're in a place where people are insulting your wife, you're hanging out in the wrong place, and you need to avoid places like that. You have too much to lose to let verbal insults stir you into action. An armed society is a polite society!

    Statistics show that we who are licensed to CCW are involved in far fewer instances of violence not because the other person (BG) knows we are carrying, it is because we are more aware of things around us that could escalate into violence and we avoid those situations altogether. I would never let anyone know that I was carrying. For me, the only exceptions would be when it would prevent the BG from attacking or if they attacked, to stop the attack by discharging the firearm. So my thought with regards to you and your wife, if you find yourselves in that situation- You both should walk away, breath deep and think to yourself that it could have turned out much, much worse.
    Safe travels.

  6. OLD OWL : Im right there with ya my wife would whop their ass in a blink of an eye. I'd have to try to drag her away and hope she doesn't hurt them too bad. She teaches Woman's self defense MMA 5 nights a week. And I think some anger issues..
    My family is protected by god and a gun would you like to meet them both..

    Very nice sir, with the utmost respect sir..

    This thread was one of the first that I began reading and posting on when I joined the site. JJFlash and I call each other still to this day and discuss things of this nature. The thought process was to get people to think for themselves and really analyze honestly and truthfully how THEY would react if this hypothetical situation or incident were to confront them.

    In some cases the ones who were quick to criticize the "what if's" and make blanketing statements without reading the entire thread, were indicating how hot headed people can get. A situation in which the decision made can be life altering, can and will present itself sometime in life. The thread was simply an exercise in self awareness.

    I was nostalgic and thought it would be fun to see it in the new posts listing again...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    There is another elsewhere about an off duty cop at Mickey D's which ended up with a child being killed.

    It's good to discuss these things, though no matter what, we never REALLY know what the outcome would be if we were there.

    You never know what will set you off. I was once called to jury duty which turned out to be a greasy haired middle aged man in a three piece suit with patent leather shoes allegedly raped a 16 year old girl. I was brought to the judges desk before the two lawyers and asked if I could be an unbiased juror. I said that I had come with an open mind and was willing to try but if things started looking bad for this guy at some point I couldn't guarantee I wouldn't jump over the railing and pummel him to death. They sent me home.
