Thread: I'm Back!

  1. #31
    I am glad to hear that you survived this encounter.

    I thought it was interesting that the very day you posted about having a weapon stolen from the open carry that you yourself became a victim of such an event. Interesting. Your words in red. Interesting that you were in a debate on this site and mere hours later were involved in the same type of incedent that you were trying to argue....almost unbelievable.

    Let's assume for the sake of argument that this story is true. Finding stories of open carriers having their gun snatched is about as easy as finding stories of cops getting their snatched; try finding either on the Internet. Just because we hardly hear about it does not mean that it's something people don't need to make an effort to prevent.

    That being said, that doesn't mean that the overwhelming of open carriers aren't responsible people, because they are, simply by virtue of the fact that they are taking responsibility for their safety into their own hands.

    I wish you a speedy recovery. And let's hope the cops find that perp.

    tatted, my friend. I sincerely hope that the police where you live are more efficient than the Indianapolis PD. as far as I am aware, they never did locate my .38 spl revolver, and due to the fact that it was nickel plated and had stag grips, I was afraid a kid might get it and think it was a toy. As I said in my message to you, I do not think the ridiculous procedure IPD put you through back in the day ever resulted in the soultion of even one crime. I do sincerely hope you get better and get back in harness. Keep your head down, bro.

    Glad to hear you are ALIVE. I hate to bring something out of this (weak /off hand shooting practice). It is something that we should all think about.

    Best!

    A tough thing to have to deal with, losing, even temporarily, your good old dependable shooting arm! My surgery is on 5 Feb (not a shooting!), and when you lose the use of that arm, it is a severe blow. Therapy and corrective surgery have come a long way in recent years, and I hope it can give you back 100%, or close to that. This brings up a carry situation that I posted on another site - if you regularly carry strong side, IWB or OWB or OC, if you cannot draw and fire your weapon with the weak hand, you need a BUG, if allowed. New Mexico does not allow a BUG !!, so I always carry cross draw - either hand is good to go, and that is the way that I practice. Massad Ayoob shows it is both practical and acceptably safe, and has been my choice for 50+ years. Not a panacea, but has it's good points.

    As a LEO something bothers me about this: he didnt bother to take your wallet, or even attempt it.

    That tells me that he had a problem with you personally (think prior work incidents).

    An obviously armed officer isnt generally considered prey by the predators.


    Get well soon bro and dont let them grind ya down.

    Austin,

    Me thinks the perps motive was the gun snatch. He gets behind and shoots his strong side shoulder, then disarms and flees. Too simple?

    +1 and a second back up gun that you can get to with your off hand also. Unless your main fire arm is carried cross draw it is pretty hard to get to with your off hand. All the more so if you are carrying in a holster with a retention device.

    Not sure, you never can guess what a tango is thinking or going to do. But, it almost sounded like he was "lying in wait".

    I guess the deciding factor for me is whether or not he had a clear view of tatted's place of work (or could have without going too far) think hole in the fence.

    Thats Crazy stuff Tat! Glad to hear you made it out alive! I'll keep you in prayer for a full and fast recovery.

    Now I know why my instructor always makes us do every drill righty and lefty. You won't catch me saying "What are the chances I'll get hit disabling my strong arm?" again!!!!!
