First time poster...Just wanted to preface this by saying thanks to all who have shared their knowledge on this board. I've learned a lot since I started carrying last April.
Ok, so I saw this story in my local news and thought I would share it with the group. Here's the link:
It's the second to last paragraph that really got me thinking:
"White and a co-defendant approached the man who was sitting in a car. At gun point, they forced the victim to take his pants off and then forced him into his home where they took a large amount of money and some jewelry."
I'm changing the scenario only slightly:
So, by some momentary lapse in your SA, you find yourself ambushed by 2 members of the bounty hunter bloods in your own driveway. You were getting ready to leave the house to run some errands and you're carrying your usual in your usual way. You were thinking about what store you should go to first when two males with red bandanas around their face come upon you, the leader of which has a gun pointed at your face. Your vehicle is directly behind you and the 2 gang members right in front of you...you're trapped. The second guy doesn't appear to be armed. The gunman orders you to "Take your pants off, now!" (this is a common tactic of the BHB who want to completely humiliate and disrespect their victims, and often strip them naked just to rob them). What do you do now?
I know this is a nightmare situation, and you probably have no other choice than to put on some theatrics, pretending to take your pants off while actually drawing your weapon and hoping for the best. I mean, if you attempt to comply and take your pants off, you're going to show 2 nervous gangstas that you are armed, and that's probably not going to turn out well.
