    Had to Draw on Someone Last Night

    Was running errands after work last night in town, pulled up to a stop sign at an intersection and was waiting for traffic to lighten up to pull out. I had my window down, radio up and spotted a black male around 250lbs dressed in black riding a bike, he drifted down the road and turned next to me, coming directly at me and yelled "hey! Hey you!", I hit the lock on the doors, got the window up to a safe height, threw it in reverse and grabbed my .40. He advanced aggressively headed for the door handle, I kept reversing, drew my weapon and told him to get away from my car. He saw the gun, and froze. I put my foot on the gas, backed up and made a u turn at a safe distance away and left.

    To put this in prospective, I'm a 5'3, white female so he probably thought I was the perfect victim. I later called my buddy, who I actively train with, and we laughed that there is now a want to-be car-jacker whom most likely has smelly pants. I told him maybe he will think next time about doing so.
    In the mean time I’ll be staying away from the area in case some of his buddies were watching, and he was smart enough to get a plate number. Thankfully I live outside the city in a rural area and have no business in the city.

    I chock it up to a good experience, and believe my muscle memory served me well. Things are crazy out there these days. Hope everyone stays safe.

    No, fairly busy west to east bound road in front, clear behind me, and all parking lots of business were empty or very limited. I'm thankful there was no one blocking my reverse.

    I like it! There is no way this guy had any good on his agenda. I am glad you had the training you needed to use your weapon safely and effectively for self defense. Some people would say that just driving away would have been enough. In this situation...maybe but what if you had not had a clear escape route...the gun would be the only equalizer at that point. I am not willing to chance it betting on a percentage of times when I could just get away...Great post!

    Where was your .40 and how were you able to bring it to bear so quickly and, I'm must say, appropriately?

    Sounds like a good draw. If you were not able to get away without a couple maneuvers then I think you had every reason to buy yourself some time so that he didn't have a chance to yank on the door or bust the window first.

    Did the man stay on his bike as he came aggressively towards your door handle, or had he set the bike down and approached on foot?

    First welcome to the board BrunetteMP. Glad everthing worked out a OK. Can you image the story that he is telling his buddies right now. I went to jack this little lady from her car and she out drove me and she pulled out this BIG gun. What is this world coming to? Chicks with guns.

    He peddled up quickly, I started reversing, he put his feet down on the ground, kept walking with it between his legs, and reached towards the door.

    You should report it incase he got your plate and said you pulled a firearm on him. Glad it worked out for you.

    we all like to hear about a good outcome. He had no good intentions if he reached for you car door handle to start with.

    First off why are you driving around with the doors unlocked to start with? Anyone can blindly walk up and get in at an intersection.

    Two; I doubt if a man on a bike at night time or day for that matter is going to get or remember you lic plate #
