    I guess you have to realize what mind set you are in and what their body language is telling you...this could happen 10 times and each time the BG could have different intentions...hell, maybe they just pistol whipped your buddy cause they didnt have any ammo and were counting on intimidation of a hand gun? There are so many things that could happen..

    How about give 'em the wallet, when they turn to run, shoot 'em in the back? Fleeing felons takedown legal in some states, I've heard... and Mad Mac, you didn't predict that...

    Two guys with a gun get my money, maybe not my wallet, but my money....


    orrrrr..

    please jerp, unlike that, it was meant tongue in cheek.

    That's a joke son, a joke I say.... You got a hole in your mitt.

    I would stare into their eyes then quickly move my stare behind them and nod. When they turn to see who is behind them I would shoot them both in the back of knees with my tricked out 1911 race gun. Then take their pants and send them hobbling down the road humming the Benny Hill thyme song.

    OR

    They would get my wallet.

    I realize that there is no way I can go H2H with them or draw, fire and stop two BGs with weapons drawn before they could shoot me. This is one of the cases where the BGs win.

    lol, ok,
    here is what to do...toss your dip can ninja star (just like the boone county ninja) as they fire on you do your best NEO impression and dodge all the bullets as they come at you in slow motion, do a kip up off the ground and spin ninja flip kick their guns out of their hands, followed by a cheeta roll between the BG legs and deliver a judy chop to the speed bag...then growl at the second attacker as he urinates on himself...

    for real though, this could have any number of out comes and the only way you will know if you made the right choice is if you are alive with no serious damage done to you. I say bottom line is to survive the encounter, if that means toss your wallet and they leave great, if that means you took your V8 today and your guardian angel is on the job and you manage out gun two guys with the drop on you thats great too....bottom line you will likely monday morning quaterback any choice you make and if you are alive monday morning then you did good.

    give them the wallet. They have the drop on you and I am no kung fu expert and even if you are, you're probably going to end up getting shot.

    If you really think you would do something other than hand over your wallet, you probably don't have the most realistic outlook on life.

    I sure did. I could also give a couple more options equally as realistic:

    1) Slap on some whiteface and do a quick mime impersonation to make the robbers believe there is a wall between you and them, or
    2) Start tugging at your tie and give 'em a Rodney Dangerfierld schtick so they laugh and drop their guns.

    Give up the wallet, although I don't know why he'd have his wallet on him while doing yardwork. He's very lucky to be alive, proves the exception to every rule. Your advice could have been a contributing factor to a much worse outcome. Glad you didn't tell him stuffing your finger in the barrel will stop a bullet!

    What about if you took your wallet out and dropped it? Hopefully they would go down to get it. If everything worked out in your favor the armed gun man's guard would be down while focusing on the wallet to go get it. Then that would be your opportunity to dodge if you must while pulling out your sidearm to immediately fire off without hesitation. Even at the ground near them would throw them into shock and scatter I assume.

    I always carry fake 100 dollar bills to throw in the air while drawing and firing for situations just like this!
