    in a case wher eit looked like it was inevitable you would be right...what some of us prefer is to keep it where it is as long as possible so the police have everyone in the same place to sort it out instead of finding one of the parties down the road to tell "their side" of the story....

    There's also the thinking that the punks might not appreciate the call and take it up w/you. I'm thinking the only thing you want to take home is dinner, not trouble.

    I see Blade's point as well...but nobody says they have to know I'm calling until I am safe in my vehicle and heading South....ah aint crazeh.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Call the police. Observe from a safe distance. Be a good witness. You do not know when through no fault of your own you may need someone to make a phone call for you or one of your loved ones.

    Yeah at most i would have watched from a distance to make sure no one was going to get killed. Would have called 911 if it got out of hand

    Had a similar situation too last Sunday afternoon when I drove home from VA Beach to Richmond. I just simply past an SUV full of some preppy looking white teens (again, just describing what they look like, not attacking a class or race of people). They were going too slow so I just simply changed lane and drove past them. And I was not doing it aggressively or following too close. Suddenly as me and the others went inside the Hampton Tunnel, the SUV changed lanes and overtook me (illegal move in the tunnel). Then they drove a normal speed limit as I just drove behind them, not following too closely. Then someone threw a confetti of paper out the window a dozen times until I drove past them before they took the exit to Jefferson Ave. in Newport News. I guess they were just having fun. But I did had my right hand on my .45 in my car seat holster, as I passed by the SUV again (gave them a nod but at the same time saw what was in the SUV), in case they wanna try to take a shot at me (some armed drivers in the highways too). You never take any vehicle that seems suspicious very lightly these days.

    You are not a cop but you could have pulled over so they would know that they have a witness watching. You could call 911 with the description of the truck and the people in it. A tag number would also a plus

    As Hiram and Tom stated before my reply to this thread, best to stay out of it.

    I would never pull over on a highway with those guys. That's a risky move that can escalate into something more dangerous. What makes you think I am trying to be a cop? I have a gun permit and the gun that I had my hand on was also concealed from their view and it remained holstered. I still took the truck's description and license plate number on my sticky just in case they do something more harmful than just throwing a confetti of paper out their side window. After all, they never followed me again once I went past them the 2nd time so calling 911 was not necessary.

    You aren't a LEO, stay out of it. Call the cops, watch, report, stay completely separated form the situation until the police ask.

    And don't expect to come out on top against up to 4 BG with a 5 round wheel gun. Your weapon is for defense of life and limb only! And from the sounds of it, Lone Ranger had his chance to walk away, He'll take his lumps and be the wiser for it.

    You did the right thing. You were there, so the choice was yours to make my friend.

    Must be high school graduation time in New Mexico? The more rural the community, the greater the likelihood of "shots fired" being reported? It happened in Capitan when I graduated too many years ago.

    Good call. You had too little information to act upon. Maybe a call to the cops,but otherwise a wise decision IMHO.
