Great job! That is what I call using your brain and you are correct and if you would have drawn on him the situation could have got ugly fast. Because in my line of work I deal with homeless on a regular basis and if you stand your ground, they will usually move on-like in your case. Once again good job!
Reminds me of my own interlude with a homeless guy with his friend nearby. In fact, it was that very incident that took me away from my ‘Pale Rider’ days of not carrying. I use to always have guns and then after a long tour in Europe, I sold everything and just didn’t bother (big mistake). As it turned out, a guy challenged us along a lonely riverbank, and he had the advantage. I motioned to my hip and bluffed my way out (fake orange). Been carrying ever since, unless restricted by circumstance.
