    is it OK to pull up your shirt and place your hand on your gun if 2 guys are giving you **** and threatening you with bodily harm even if they have no weapons?

    Slightly better question this time. :cool:

    Basically, you are describing making what most would consider a threatening gesture with your handgun. Arresting officers and prosecutors might hit you with anything from brandishing to aggravated assault if they believed you did it without just cause.

    Can't do a 40 hour course in the short space here, but basically, to be justifiable you'd have to show that you did not provoke the encounter...that a reasonable and prudent person in your situation and knowing what you knew would have believed they were about to suffer death or grave bodily harm, here and now.

    I'd recommend a good CCW course and some reading up on the subject.

    Best wishes,
