I did re-read it. Sorry I misunderstood.

I would wait before escalating to showing a gun...and I choose 'escalating' carefully because I believe your other first steps were good and probably would have been sufficient to at least momentarily distract them. If you needed to uncover your weapon after that because THEY escalated it by becoming more threatening in some manner....then sure.
But again...only you can estimate the immediate threats in the situation and you kept cool and got your kids out of there. I added my 2 cents only because you asked.
ShooterX....I love the movie your quote is from and that whole messenger scene is my favorite in the movie.
