    Good lesson on never leaving without the gun and the three A’s Anywhere, Anytime, Anybody.

    It’s great that you were working on a plan if you were attacked. The door chuck can get someone’s attention.

    However, I don’t think a gun would have done you any good in THIS case. I doubt you would want to pull your gun on this guy. Yes, he was setting off all sorts of warning bells but he didn’t attack or even threaten you.

    I think you would have been better off to drive away even if you were carrying.

    Stevem....your right. At least that's one possibility in terms of dealing with the scenario. Window up, verbal warning, forget the handout, drive away.... coulda shoulda

    There's only one reason for a self-deprecating post like this and it's certainly not to confess my sins. I hope for others to learn. Yeah, any time you expose yourself on intergalactic websites, you have to expect the lectures/responses. Since I've served up the whole thing on a stick, it's easy to offer analysis on the episode. Whatever. I could have made the story more colorful and looked like John Wayne, but I didn't. Just the embarassing facts. But it all happened very easily and was not handled well by me in many ways. Maybe it won't happen to the next Joe Schmoe after they read about my screw up.

    I would not give handouts to beggars. It only encouages more of the same.
