WellFirst off the whole situation sucked. : I had my daughter sleeping in the back seat, "what if this is a car jacking? what will they do with my child?" and the what ifs continue till the cows come home.
I had to make a some quick calls. I didnt want to have this person know where I live and I wanted to be in control of the situation as much as possible. I still feel I made the right call. The situation ended quickly and no one was hurt. Hopefully I can go another 18 years.
For the record. I am an EXCELLENT shot. I practice action target shooting. I have qualified on 2 types of rifles and 2 types of pistols. Most of my guns are stored off site. My side arm is kept in a Biometric gun safe. I am the ONLY human that can open it.
My wife was pretty anti gun until I had to pick her up from work during the WTO riots in seattle a couple of years ago.
Thanks to everyone for your support and comments.
Happy 4th everybody. Enjoy the Liberty and Freedom that the gun has made possible.
