Today the stats came out on crime rates (metro areas) and Detroit was #1, New Orleans was #2 and Memphis was #3. I'm not surprised at all.
Mine didn't have it when I got it, but I got a cap right away.

I'd like to print out your experience and include it as a handout to each of my students if you don't mind, I think it is perfect to raise their awareness and for them to share with other family members.

I also plan on mailing a copy to each of the women I have a record of having trained.

If you would rather I not, let me know.

I've gone through all 5 pages and read every reply/post and I just have to say thank you to everyone that has shared their experiences. I would like to say that I am pretty good about being aware of my surroundings and have pepper spray attached to my keys... but these days one cannot afford to let their guard down... esp women walking alone in the dark.

I don't carry yet because I am waiting on a good friend of ours to help me with getting aquainted with my 19 (hurdles I have to get over first...) But we'll see.

Thank you and thank goodness all of you that have had confrontations are safe!

Is there an NRA instructor in your area, or maybe a gun range that teaches classes? Sometimes they do women's defensive classes or similar.

Miss Kitty,

Even though I read and commented almost a year ago, I just read this post again, and it was a good reminder. I just finished my nc ccw, which made me aware of several things that I hadn't thought of, but your story was one that I should keep in my mind - I only hope that I can remain as calm as you did!

So again, thanks!

MK,

I just now saw this thread. Scary stuff, there. I'm glad you were able to take care of yourself. Good job.

Great story - I made the wife read it too.


Thanks to the California gun-nazis I can't carry my G17, but I sure could have used it when I was carjacked at gunpoint 5 years ago...

Similar situation, "bumped" from the rear while at a red light. Just as a previous poster said, they wanted the CAR and passenger came out with gun drawn. Ran up to my passenger window and screamed "GET THE F--K OUTTA THE CAR". Needless to say I took the bus for the next few days.

I went down to the local PD and asked to apply for a CCW permit - they just laughed at me.

Keep that gun in your RIGHT hand, hidden by your leg, (so you are not "brandishing" it) and the moment you START seeing that jackarse take his hand out of his pocket, pull your gun, point, determine the actual threat, and "handle it" as needed. Be ready to shoot over your left shoulder towards the rear as it is likely that is where a threat will retreat to get a shot at you without getting hit himself. Be ready to hit the gas. Run him over if you have to.
In my opinion, we worry too much about brandishing. If someone comes up to my car under such circumstances, and puts me on alert for some reason, insists I come out, won't hear my commands to back away, the gun is coming out. My guess is he didn't have a gun in his pocket, or he would have shown it to get you out. My guess, a stun gun, asp, sap, spray or something he would have used up close, given the chance, perhaps to kidnap you. If he wanted a car, carjacking with a gun is easy enough to do.

thanks MK, this is my first time to the site and i'm hooked for life now.

i work nights (11p-7a) at a holiday inn about 30min. from my house, and this is a real eye opener!

i just hope if i get in any similar situation that i have enough wits about me to act sensibly like you did!

Wow!!! You did great!! I had an incident with road rage, and I had the kids in the car!! This woman and her friends decide to try to play a game. She first started to tailgate me and I moved over to let her pass, she than got in front of me and slammed on her breaks. She put me in a position to go around her. Than the light in front of me turned red, I thought it was safe because she backed off, I was wrong she got out of her car and started walking up to my car. Luckily the light turned green, so I went. Than she followed me, waving her hands and screaming out the window. I called the police, when she saw me on the phone, she did a u-turn and drove off. I am thankful I didn't need to use my 38. I'm not sure the effect it would've had on the kids. It was sure nice knowing I had it and knowing she could've had a much worse day.

Kitty.

I copied your story and emailed it to my girlfriend. She is one of those 'trusting' types that all too often winds up as a victim.

I think your story will help her be more careful and keep herself safe.

So, THANK YOU very much for posting your story, hopefully it will help her understand that we all need to be careful.

Glad you handled yourself so well.

Chris.

I'm replying to this a little late in the thread... but just wanted to say that you did a great job

Your post actually reminded me of when an exgirlfriend of mine almost got car jacked/killed by a crazy bull dyke. She got rear ended/bumped by a large masculine woman driving a pickup truck (the girlfriend was driving a miata convertible.) The lady in the truck came out with a revolver blazing, lit the whole intersection up. Amazingly didn't hit my ex or her car and my ex kept her head together and managed to pull off some serious defensive driving to get out of there.

We live in a crazy world. Joy is definately getting her ccw after reading this

MK,
Thanks so much for sharing. I immediately thought to copy this and share it with my friendly, trusting wife (I do love her for that, and she takes many cautions, and I want her to be more aware). When I read NC in one of your responses I thought I had better share this quick since we are probably in the same neighborhood. Thanks again and maybe this will convince her to let me get her her own gun.

+1 for intuition! I hope to never have an experience like that, mainly because there is no such thing as a ccw, or open carry up in Canada anyway. Your experience will have me thinking twice about how I will interact if an 'accident' ever occurs again.
