    Police: Man pulls gun during knife fight, faces no charges

    "According to investigators, the 26-year-old picked a fight with another customer inside the store. At some point, Dressler pulled a knife.

    Another customer, Billy Dunkelberger, 21, tried to help. Officers said Dressler then pointed his knife at him, so Dunkelberger pulled a gun.

    No one was hurt, and police arrested Dressler. He's charged with aggravated assault.

    Dunkelberger is not facing any charges."

    I would have loved to see his face. "I've got a knife and I'm gonna...Oh ****, thats a... **** he's got a gun... um, well Yes sir I'll just lay this down right here."

    Oh, forgot to mention, Dunkelberger had a CCW.

    But the thing is if he had to go H2H someone would have been hurt and hurt bad. But with the gun it was settled right there.

    Both walked away, one in cuffs the other with a pat on the back.

    I tell students, especially lighter built ones, that if you meet three gang members on the street and they have clubs, chains, knives, and you go H2H with them, even if you are Bruce Lee you are bound to get hurt. But if you have a gun, and you are good with it, they will more than likely back off. And if they don’t, some of them are going to be on the ground.

    The gun is not a magic wand, but it’s well ahead of non-firearm weapons.

    +1 for Mr. Dunkelberger, he used his ccw to de-fuse the situation and no one got hurt. That won't make the national news because it had a good ending with no blood shed.

    I guess sometimes you have to escalate to de-escalate...

    I wonder just how long it took Dressler to go from "I'm gonna cut you" to "please don't shoot"?

    Mr. Dunkleberger handled the situation very nicely. He even said to Dressler, "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight!"

    Technically since the bad guy had the knife out first, it should say Mr. Dunkelberger brought a gun to a knife fight.

    Pull your gun out of the holster, point it in front of you or what your aiming to shoot, and count to three.... Probably how long it took to defuse the situation.

    Im wondering, would Mr. Dunkelberger have done the same without the CCW. I sure hope I could have courage like this if something ever happen to myself(family) or the innocent bystander in the wrong or bad situation. Hats off to him for stepping up when other bystander's probably walked by or ran off.

    Hopefully Dressler didn't learn how to knife fight from Ah-nold.
    Remember how he handled that dude in Predator?
