    Just be advised when in close proximity to what appears to be an intoxicated, homeless, panhandler, always be ready for them to produce an edged weapon. Most of them don't walk around with guns, but living on the streets, a lot of them have a knife or some kind of improvised edged weapon or club. Some will become aggressive or boisterous when their request for a hand-out is rebuffed by your stern requests to get lost, or move along.

    Going "hands on" with one of them in an attempt to "escort" them on their way, could result in your gut getting sliced before you know what's happening if you're not careful.
    I will second Bark'n's response.

    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.

    How is it a character check? Looking for a ight because you are armed makes you a dangerous loser, but being more willing to do the right thing because you feel more capable of handling it doesn't mean that avoiding a scenario if you weren't armed lacks character. Maybe I misunderstand your point...
