True story that happened to me about three years ago.......
one of the few times I ever pointed a gun at anyone was in a Denny's parking lot in Kissimmee, Florida. Sunday night at 10PM I pulled into get something to eat after working out at the gym. Was involved in a heated phone call with my brother that I speak to about twice per year, so I was totally pre-occupied in conversation. As I am sitting in the parking lot still talking on the phone, a sleazy looking skinny blond woman walks around my vehicle from the passenger side and proceeds to move around the front to my drivers side door. I have the doors locked and the windows up, and was carrying my Glock 19 weak side in a fanny pack since I had just left the gym. Still speaking with my brother, I unzipped the fanny pack and put my right hand on the Glock and moved the phone to my left hand. She began to speak to me through the closed window. Annoyed as hades, I told my brother that some hooker wanted to speak to me, and I would call him back. I put the phone down and lowered the window slightly and asked her very bluntly....."What the xxxxx do you want?" All she would say was....."Wassupppp"? She repeated this line a couple of times after I continued to ask her the same question. Needless to say I did not know what her intentions were, but I immediately went from condition orange to Defcon I. Something was not good here, and I was in a car with the engine off. The Glock was held out of sight at the ready in my right hand....more or less pointed in her direction. Suddenly I caught a quick movement out of my right eye on the passenger side, and rapidly swung my head in that direction as two homies jumped on the front and back doors passenger side and were attempting furiously to gain entry. As I swung my head toward the two new threats on the passenger side, the Glock instinctively came to bear on the guy at the front of the vehicle. Instantly, the hooker on the drivers side screamed, "He's gotta a gun"!!!!!
All three cock roaches scrambled to beat a hasty retreat at the sight of the Glock.
I started the engine of my vehicle and got out of the parking lot while dialing 911 to report the attempted car jacking. I spied a city cop car a block away and stopped to speak with them and relayed my story including my part about the Glock.
Young cop just smiled and told me that they knew excactly who I had described and said it was the third time that night they had attempted to jack a car. He also said, "Lucky for them that you had the ability to keep from pulling the trigger as this was obviously a car jacking situation even thought they had not gained entry to your vehicle".
Take it for what is worth. True story. Haven't been back to that Denny's since.
