Last night one of my daughters, her husband, their two kids and two friends went into Billings to go to Cabela's. Our granddaughter fell asleep in the Suburban, so while everybody else went into Cabela's, my daughter stayed in the truck (sitting in the second seat)with her sleeping daughter in the back (3rd) seat. They left the engine running so as not to disturb the sleeping 4 yr old. Less than 2 minutes after they all walked into Cabela's, two men, one on either side of the truck suddenly openned the doors and one climbed in in behind the wheel and the other started to get into the other side.
My daughter was startled at first, then in a commanding voice, told them to "Get Out!!" Her presence startled them--the two men looked at each other, then she again told them to "Get out!!!" They left--she then reached over into the front seat, grabbed her purse and pulled out her Pistol (Colt Mustang that I gave her when she moved away from home) and called her husband and then called 911.
They never caught the guys (no surprise there). My daughter, prior to this, has not shown much interest in a concealed carry license. Now she wants to take the class.
We all know how this COULD have turned out...........
Any where, any time--it happens fast.
