    You guys are too much. Thanks for sharing your story. People tend to train for a self defense scenario in their head. Truth is, it will never happen like you plan and it does happen fast. Be prepared, seek training and thanks for the story.

    So you're saying that you got distracted by a woman you were on a date with when she was walking you to your car, huh?
    :hearts:

    :smootchie:

    Bet no one else here has ever been let a woman get in the way of their situational awareness. Right? :tongueout:

    Although there is no evidence that the tarp was, in fact, going to attack you, I would suggest that the accusation that it was attempting to do so would certainly warrant a full investigation. LOL
    Thanks for sharing that.:)
    I have a few of my own but I ain't telling them here!!! haha

    Thats because we've all had a moment just like that at one time.
    I can relate!:cool:

    So, when the advancing tarp caused her to scream, did you scream too? :tongueout: :rofl:

    I am psychologically incapable of removing a gun from my person. (Which is, 'Why' I go to New Jersey and New York as little as possible.) I can't understand what possessed you to take your gun off? The feeling, to me, is like being naked. If you want to laugh I have a slightly different problem about, 'coming up empty'. I'm ambidextrous, and wear weapons on either side of my body. Once when I was startled I grabbed with my right hand and came up with a handful of air. Nothing bad happened; but that moment of openhanded confusion is more than enough time for the other guy to drawn and fired!

    Never been to an Olive Garden and now I have another reason not to go besides the food.

    But if you're a regular, you've got a choice to make. Go unarmed, or quit going there and POLITELY LET THE SENIOR MANAGEMENT KNOW WHY.

    My bank posted a few years ago and I and others let them know they had 30 days for the signs to come down, or accounts would be closed and moved elsewhere. The signs came down.

    We had a local bank with the "No Handguns" sign on the door, a few months ago it was robbed at gun point. I guess they got the point that criminals don't care about a sign because the sign came off the door and the bullet proof glass went up at the counters. Of course I didn't see a sign about tarps. :tongueout:
