    Start backing out, as quickly as is safe. Then, I would call the police and have them present when "sorting out" the situation.

    If they start shooting or acting aggresively as I'm back out, I put it in drive and ram them.

    Also, it is probably relevant information that running is not an option for myself. If it was, I would do as others have mentioned and turn on the high beams and exit quickly into the woods. I'd get as far away as quickly as possible, then hide and see what I hear (as you will be able to hear followers MUCH farther away than you will be able to see them at night and/or in thick woods). When it was safe and possible to do so, I would start figuring out a way to reach help. Either by phone or by walking.

About 50 feet in front of you, the passenger gets out and is armed with an ar15 and the driver has a pistol leaning out the window.

    They were at the communications site stealing equipment (which is why the site went offline). You have a ccw with a pistol, but you are alone. The road is narrow and has lots of turns so backing up fast is not an option.

    USE YOUR TRUCK! It's the best weapon you've got, and it's already in gear and moving. If the distance is short, ram them. More distance, jam that pig sideways in the road and head downhill with your BOB. Find a light well if you can, and use it. Above all, keep moving and creating distance. Remember, distance = time.

    i'd be afraid that if I bailed i'd be shot in the back by the AR while running... if the guy makes and aggressive move maybe duck and ram him. heh

    if youre gonna close on a guy with an ar15 and think your truck is gonna stop the incoming rounds youre in deeper doo than you think...he is already out of the truck and mobile so he can reposition and pour fast moving rounds through sheet metal and glass (if youve never seen an ar and a car go at it find a tactical range thatll do a demo for you...it isnt much of a fight)...and just for hoohah sake are you certain this isnt a police vehicle youve run into?...(the locals here carry ar's and have lots of unmarked vehicles)....

    i'm all about blocking the road with my vehicle and exiting out the rear if theres good cover (woods...etc) to duck into...if its open and these guys are coming at me with an ar and a handgun i'm gonna need the element of surprise to take at least one of em out ata time...i'm not a runner physically so i need cover and concealment fast...

    i'm curious about the bug out bag and its purpose in this scenario...i dont see living in the woods for several days as an option here so i'm wondering what i'm carrying out of the truck that might slow me down...i expect to have my firearm...flashlight and spare mag(s) on me so i need to know what else i'm gonna need (other than the possible first aid equipment if i get shot and left alive...doubtful but possible)...i'm not looking for powerbars and water for the duration...i wanna be able to move fast if possible...whats in the bag that i might need?..i am curious....

    As I read the op, I just came around a corner and they are 50' away with the long gun out of their veh.

    Back around the corner for cover, stop the truck and head for the woods. They either have to pick up the long gun or leave him. If they leave him, I have a little time til he can run up to where I am, so initially i am only dealing with the pistol perp If the driver picks up the long gun, that gives me a few more seconds to get to the woods. In the woods, run a short distance looking for an ambush sight, then stop and wait. Hopefully they will just leave with their booty.

    I would start backing down the road as fast as I can safely do so.Maybe the bad guys will see this as a way out and not shoot.Keep trying to dial 911 and hope for the best. Next time you get a call like this be sure to take your deer rifle and ask for a police escort.

    Hmm, I would bail out the car while running behind my car into the woods. I wouldn't go deep into the woods due to it being dark and me getting loss would becoming another issue within its self. If they give chase, lie and wait while picking up any sticks and/or stones that can be trowed away from you. Stay low but shoot high and don't stand in the same place after you fired your weapon, the flash from your gun can get you killed if you do.

    Its dark and your in the woods. Shapes isn't that easy to see so when you have to fire your gun, the flash of your gun will light you up so when the BGs start to fire back at you, you would want to duck low so hopefully you won't get hit.
