    That's a downpour, in SW Kansas you're lucky to get 6 spots on the driveway.

    I believe it is safe to say you made the right call. 3 scummy looking dudes in a car parked way out away from everyone else in a big parking lot is not something I would ever consider stopping for either.

    You did well. I know when my instincts start to talk, I listen.

    Agreed, just ignore and keep driving. I would probably call the leo non emergency number and let them do a drive by and check 'em out. I'd bet at least one, out of the three, will have an outstanding warrant.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    You did the right thing unless you had new ammo you wanted to test.

    You gotta earn my help: sober, decent, upstanding, plausible need of help. Otherwise, if you aren't permitting me to ignore you, "I don't have what you want".

    They're just in need of attention.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I agree with everyone else, good job.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
    If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.
