    Sorry you left BigArn . . I encourage you to read the heading for this SubForum below:

    Carry & Defensive Scenarios
    Real or hypothetical, discussions regarding when you should or should not draw your weapon, shoot or not shoot, attack or retreat is valuable to each of us.

    Our intent is to 'discuss' how the situation might be dealt with.

    In this scenario Treo said it all for me. (post #11)

    Ya, what ever, easy to say that behind a keyboard, it's another thing doing that in a real life situation.
    Once again, BG did nothin', OP wanted to shoot somebody, that is what I got out of the post, nothing more, nothing less.

    So why bring it up in the first place?? Like the OP said he wanted to ventalate the guy, but the guy didn't do anything to either of then. It sounded like the OP was wishing the guy would of done something just so he could pull his gun and shoot him. And the way i read into it that something could of been just looking at them!!!

    I would of kept my eyes on him as we both just walked on by. He didn't threaten me or my wife, so there was no cause for me to threaten him.
    Oh by the way I would of put myself in between her and the so called bad guy, so if he was to try and put his hands on her I would of been in the path.
    Put yourself in a position so you don't have to pull your weapon.

    interesting reply...as you said nothing happened so there is no reason whatsoever to put yourself in between the 2...it could be a chance encounter that starts with pleasant conversation and a trigger causes the attack....you always put yourself between people that nothing may happen with?...

    the op never wanted to shoot anyone...even he said nothing happened...he was only asking "what if"....you took to the offensive and put words in his mouth...all he wanted to do was discuss a hypothetical scenario...

    Per the OP post there was a reason, she was his X-wife. So I went along with the same scenario.

    If you lay a hand on my wife, you'll draw back a bloddy stump before I could stop...her.

    If I'm around and you touch my wife, hope you didn't have any long term plans. I take a few things seriously, the vows I took to protect her, and the promise I made to her mother/father/grandparents would govern my actions towards any attacker.

    Good grief! The situation was based on a hypothetical "what if" scenario! No, nothing threatening happened. The OP was asking about the possible actions to take if something had happened.

    What's so hard to understand about this? About 95% of the threads in the section are based on the same premise; how would you handle the situation IF _______ happened?

    As far as the OP stating that he wanted to "ventilate" the guy, it was based on previous things the guy had done. The OP didn't say that he wanted the situation to take a turn to where he would get that chance. I think you read way too much into that.

    More on topic: Kudos for being protective of your loved ones. My wife already knows that Im willing to spend time incarcerated someday if it means my actions in a threat situation have saved her life or the lives of our kids. The Def.Carry armchair QB brigade can say what they want ;)

A reasonable jury may see it your way. This is all after the fact though.
    The health of the mother may be severely threatened by a physical attack in an advanced stage of pregnancy. That would be a factor, I'm quite sure.
