He keeps advancing and I draw as I move my angle away from my car. He sees me draw, which was the quickest smoothest draw I've ever done, even in practice....and the guy about falls down running back to his car. My wife was really freaked out but more glad that I didn't unload on the kid.
Regardless about how you feel about your family's safety, that situation could have ended badly if he would have called the cops about a guy waving a gun around.

Jeez that's right out of a slasher movie, except the hero was prepared for trouble

That sure is a pretty twisted way of putting it....but you are pretty twisted.

How about claiming to be a Cop/MMA fighter who was flat out busted lying and posting false pictures.

How about not knowing some of the most basic things about Law Enforcement.

How about telling stories that dont add up, over and over.

How about using the deaths of Officers to prove points and then retreat to "haha, I was joking."

How about having been called out by numerous vetted LEOS and of course, to him, everyone of them is wrong (a pattern he has with many things, it is always someone else)

And a number of other things.

Not only that, but even if you'd gotten away, the guy might have kept after you. This way, he made an informed decision to leave you alone.

What's that song say. "He got charged with reckless discharge of a gun, but he hit right where he was aiming."
but like they say on Duck Dynasty "He gone"

Yes, but not on a human. Walking around some rural acreage my family has in Missouri a number of years back, I rounded a corner out on the property and came about ten feet from a very large cougar sunning itself next to the path.

I didn't have a clue he was even there until he growled.

I stopped, VERY slowly backed up along the trail about ten yards and once out of sight, pulled my pistol and continued slowly backing away all the way back to where I had parked my truck (about a quarter mile). I know that's not technically pulling a gun "on" the cougar, but at the distance I encountered him I figured that if I made a sudden move and he sprang, he'd be on me long before I got the pistol out of its holster.

I think I aged five years in those first few moments!

Gotcha. Not what I would do, sitting here on my couch with my drink, but everything turned out ok, and that's as good an outcome as anyone could ask for

That would scare the **** out of me. Like someone else said, right out of a slasher movie.

I had a similar story. I was deer hunting in Idaho, and I was being tracked by a big one I saw it as it was approaching me , and I was going to pop it with my .350 Remington Mag but it ran away. Very odd as I could sense it under the ridge line I was following. Bit never saw it until it came out of the brush

Save yourself some time....The last five pages are probably the most telling.

Post #632 is the BIG REVEAL.

I've never had to draw on anyone. I've never been threatened. In fact, I don't know anyone personally who has pulled his weapon for SD.

I can understand bad situations in the woods, mall parking lots, a home break in, road rage and several other situations where the gun could become the last resort. I've managed to avoid trouble for many years by staying clear of likely attack places; thats by far the best defense we have.

Road rage is pretty bad here, especially from the marginalized who think they have an axe to grind against who they perceive as "the rich". I was pretty shook up and was still shaking while me and my wife were making the report to the police at the station.

I pulled my pistol once, when I was tending bar. A fight broke out over a pool game. I swear if I ever own a a bar there will be no pool tables. Almost every bar fight I have ever seen started over a pool game. A guy pulled a knife, I grabbed my .45 from underneath the register and told him to drop the knife. I probably said "please don't make me shoot you" about 50 times in the 2 or 3 seconds it took for him to drop it.

He took off, I called the cops and they picked him up about a half hour later in another bar. He got busted for parole violation. He had just gotten out of prison the week before, for stabbing someone.

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide whether the situation was legitimate self defense or an escalation of criminal activity / road rage. Other times it is not difficult at all to decide that the incident consists only of various crimes.

OMG I think I definitely would have done the same thing! You just have to draw SLOWLY cause the "big cats" tend to take every move as a threat....or so I've been told
