Excellent OP and thanks for posting it. Yes, I think he was up to no good. Not sure you were a target for carjacking. His intentions may have been worse than taking your vehicle.

I haven't read the 8 pages that follow the OP. But I assume they include kudos for a job well done. I can't think of anything you could have done differently.

Hindsight is 20/20 vision. It's hard for us to feel what you felt or understand your fear. Evolution gave you 10,000 years of instinct and I beieve you followed them correctly. Trusting your instincts can be then difference between life and death and you followed this to the note... and went home to your family unharmed. Good job.

I think you did great! I am glad you stayed in the car and stayed cool. The guy will probably never know how close he came to looking at sky.

Well.. sometimes its the small bits of info that allows a inv that is already working a case, to solve it. It may have been better if they had taken a detailed case report and forward it to the division that could already be investigating these guys. It sounds like they just worked up a accident report.

One other strategy for someone who feels they MUST approach your drivers side door: Keep your motor running. Turn your steering wheel all the way to the right. Shift into reverse. Keep one foot on the brake.

If trouble starts, take your foot off the brake and hit the gas. The front wheel will take the front of the car over the bad guy. Test this in a parking lot to see how it works.

Keep in mind that this action can be lethal...so employ it appropriately...not on irritations like panhandlers, etc.

Miss Kitty,

Let me be one of the many to personally congradulate you on your unbelieveable courage and self control in this harrowing experience. I think you handled things masterfully. Those tud balls had more on their minds than exchanging insurance papers. And +100 for being smart enough and ahead of the curve enough to be armed!!! I would wager not one woman in 300 carries. Most just can't be bothered. Even when its their lives in the balance! How many will fill unmarked graves because of it?


I was on the verge of getting my wife to get her carry permit till one evening at a friend's house I brought up CCW and our host laughed at me for being so paranoid. (We live in Jacksonville Fla., the 'murder capitol' of Fla., yep real cause for "paranoia" there) Now she can't be bothered to even think about carrying, (someone may laugh at her about it I suppose) I could see from the look on her face all the imploring and reasoning I had done, (including a then recient incident on a lonely mountain road when she loaded and racked her Glock 26 w/o so much of a word from me. She spotted potential trouble and carried through.) just flew out the window on gossamer wings. She has no problems with me carrying or keeping loaded Glocks at home on the night stand, but thinks nothing of going out at night to the most dangerous part of town unarmed for her college classes.....

Now here is how I see things from your post OK! First of all, I am letting those would be "car-jacker" know I got my GLOCK in hand ready for whatever he attempts to pull out of his pocket the second time you had to tell him to back away from the car understand.

Now once you hear those 2 would be car-jackers discussing the situation, behind your car, that is time for real alert. NO hiding your weapon, use your car as a ram if need be and get the hell out of DODGE period. There is also such a thing as a citizen's arrest in my state, don't know about yours.

I would think by know the person in front of you, would have already made there turn and traffic was flowing once again.......you never stated one way or another. How long did the entire incident take? You are lucky these were real amature car snatchers or you may have been shot and drug out of the car. The bad boys don't wait and discuss what they are going to do with you in the car OK. They know what they are going to do as soon as they come up to a vehicle.

My LEO CCW instructor fielded that question in my last CCW refresher. He said that in our area those statements would qualify as a threat of lethal force. He was careful to qualify "in our area", so check with the local LEOs in your area.

It seemed like eons but it was only a few minutes. 2-4 maybe? I looked at my cell phone records then and added the times but I can't remember now...

Traffic, except for the lane I was in, never even slowed down. I remember thinking "if I do draw down on this guy, and he runs, there is no way he'll not be run over..."

Car in front of me...I want to say it stayed, but I cannot be sure now. My focus was on the guy at my window.

Miss Kitty, just read the entire posting. WOW - no way I would have done that well, I would never have thought it was a carjacking - I've learned by your experience. My wife and I just got our MN carry permits, and she will be reading this tomorrow.

Thank-you for educating us all!

You did well, you should have said the F word a lot more though...Would have made the story much kooler and you would have sounded tougher.

Very smart behavior on your part. Never let the opponent control the situation and always summon the police. Perhaps God was watching over you as many times these things end badly.

Way to listen to yourself MissK!
Evolution has provided us with 10,000 years of instincts. When the hair on your neck is standing up... believe it.

When you're lying in bed and hear that floor board squeak in the other room or a noise at the window... believe it. When you get the willies about someone... believe it.

Instincts are your first line of defense. They should kick you from yellow to orange (alert).

Bravo! Well played Mrs Kitty. Kept calm, aware and ready. It does sound more like a snatch n grab abduction attempt than a carjacking. I didn't catch if he was alone in the car? If he was it wasn't a simple carjacking!
I would suggest the same to anyone reading this, get a hi lumen output led light and keep it in you door pocket next to the seat or somewhere handy on the drivers side. Something like a coast L7 from lowes its 190+ lumens 70 bucks and even in broad daylight will momentarely blind a person. Blast'em in the eyes as you kick open the door or draw your weapon, they won't see it coming.
Also on the call to 911 leave the phone on so the operator can hear whats going on and it is being recorded for your witness so to speak!

Again Well Done! You took command of the situation and avoided being more of a victim!
