That serves them right. I love when BGs come face to face with people that refuse to be victims.Handgun Guy said:Yes Once several years back.. A few of my freinds where in a Bad area in West Memphis Arkansas very late at a fast food place.. While we were eating the table across from us had about 4 thug looking guys sitting there.. They were talking about us .. We were all pretty sure it was something about robbing us. The smell of dope and beer was powerfull come from them.. All of us were packing. So 3 of us we mearly pulled or jackets back to reveal 3 fully loaded pistols! Needless to say they left promtly and stared at us nomore. All I could say was thank goodness we were armed and did not have to use our weapons!
I disagree, if showing your pistol allows to get out of a situation where you must shoot someone, it's a good thing.abaldeagle said:I would not call brandishing a proper self-defense technique.
Either you are fearfull enough to go for your gun or not. Brandishing will get you into hot water when the guy runs off and calls the police on you for brandishing no matter what he did.
Brandishing is nothing more than a pissing contest. Mine is bigger than your type thing.
Either use it or keep it in the holster.

It is not a pissing contest. It is a means of getting out the door without having to kill someone first.
It's not so black and white.

When got off the highway (unfortunately we both used the same exit) he had me blocked between curbs with a car behind me then exited his car charging back at me with something in his hand. I reached in the gun pocket of a 5-11 Tactical Coat which he saw me do and immediately turned around and got in his car. He had a cell phone and I never had to show my gun. he yelled out the window he was going to call the cops about the incident and I encouraged him to do so (which someone said the first caller has an advantage and in the future I need to call first; especially if I draw). Still going in his direction, he flagged down an oncoming cop who didn't stop till he got beside my car LOL, I told the story first and just drove on while the trouble maker waited in his rage to speak to the cop.
Funny how road rage people think their screeching sideways to a halt or driving up a lawn to summons a cop gives them some sort of edge. Somehow I think the cop sees it as who the obvious offender is. Road rage sure makes you think poorly.
