Thread: Wife draws at Walmart

    @Gr8gunz: Your wife did a truly great job. Trade you mine for yours any day.

  3. It seems to me that we've attracted one of Mayor Bloomers' paid anti-gun trolls - maybe even two.

    I have no problem with the wife especially that she was concealed behind cover and did not point the pistol. Had she pointed the pistol, with no fear for her personal safety this would not be a self
    defense situation although it could have fell into a defense of another situation.

  5. Mappow, she was not impersonating an officer, she just stated that she wasz the closest thing to a cop, so for all intents and purposes she was acting as an officer would, given the same situation. I am a former peace officer, and would have chuckled over her statement after the madman was subdued. The lady was prepared to perform an act of selflessness by being ready to take out the man if he became truly violent. She deserves a commendation, not condemnation. Mappow would probably be shivering under a counter and purging his bowels.

    So, you're saying that if you pulled into a shopping center and saw a 6'4" 280 lb man choking the life out of a 5' 85 lb woman on the sidewalk and you were armed you would not intervene but simply let him kill her. What kind of a human being are you?

    That's what happened to my friend in 1993. He was on his way home from the shooting range with his Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 mag. He pulled in to get a Coke and saw the above scenario playing out & several people watching but doing nothing. He yelled at the guy to stop several times but he ignored him. The woman had already lost conciousness when he fired one time striking the perp once in the head. Paramedics arrived and cpr revived the woman. Fire station was only 5 blocks away or she probably wouldn't have made it.ME pronounced the perp drt.

    Police took my friend in & kept his gun for evidence. He was not charged. The Grand Jury no billed him at the request of the DA.

    Here's another one. A man and his 12 yo son were returning from hunting when they saw a state trooper and a man fighting on the side of the road near San Angelo, Tx. Just as they passed the man got the trooper's gun from his holster & shot him. The man stopped several yards down the road got his 7-08 hunting rifle from the rack and shot the bg. The trooper lived & returned to duty. The bg, who was an escaped inmate, driving a stolen car was drt.

    Texas Rangers would not release the name of the hunter or his son for his own privacy & protection. The TX Highway Patrol honored the man at a banquet in San Angelo & offerred him a job as a trooper. He declined the job but he did accept a fully engraved S&W Model 28 Highway Patrolman 4" 357.

    She didn't answer "affirmative" as to being a cop. Say hi to Bloomie for me when you attend his next campaign fund raiser.

    who cares what she said. She was reacting to a what could have been a very serious situation. Thank God it did not go any further. I feel better knowing there are people like her out there.

    Good grief! Do you find a cop to kiss butt on a regular basis? Go soak your head.

    This lady did exceptionally well, given the circumstances. She was ready to respond if necessary, and didn't waste time trying to argue the LEO stupid question.

    But yes... in such a situation, we are ALL peace officers. It's called the natural militia. There is no magic juju in a uniform...

    Perfect. Rather than spending the next 5 minutes addressing the bystanders question, she was smart enuf to shut the conversation down........ Right now... I wish I could be so quick thinking. Take that lady out to a great dinner.

    You naysayers are, IMHO, sharp as a bowling ball. Of the millions of options that she had, the most likely in an adrenaline charged situation would be to duck and forget she even had a gun, or like you pansies not want to take a chance of making themselves a target. If you read the OP, there were no cops present, they had been called. what if something were to happen in the time it took them to respond? I have been taught to draw my weapon ANYTIME I feel there might be a need to use it. Unless you're name is Earp or something, waiting for a BG (or possible BG) to perform an aggressive act towards you before drawing is just a little to nice in my book. I never plan to enter into a fair fight...
