This is a discussion on Punk jumping on the roof of my car within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by WHEC724 Do you think you were randomly selected, or was there a reason they chose your car to dance on? I'm wondering ...
Could you shoot them with bean bag rounds from a 12 gauge?
Camera and a phone call would be my choice. On a related note, I'm keeping an eye out for a cell phone with a better camera...meanwhile since most of my time is spent at home, I've usually got a number of cameras within reach.
This thread brought up a great point... How many of us are prepared for a "punk kid" scenario like the OP mentioned? Im not, or wasn't until this post. As soon as I get home tonight I'm saving or deleting all my excess video from my iPhone, I'm already out of space and would not be able to record "punk kid" acts in progress should they happen right now. Up until now I've always had to delete something in order to record something new, which is not condusive to the OPs situation.
OP, I think you handled yourself very professionally.
PPKheat, great idea!
To those who recommend pellet guns and paintball.... Maybe if this were the 1960's, but in this day and age you'll likely be paying for these hoodlums rimz from all the lawsuits you'd soon face. I'm not saying its right, but it is what it is....
Subscribing for good ideas........
If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.
Im a big fan of the .22LR for bear defense.
Just shoot the guy next to you in the knee and run like heck.
I'm in the pepper spray camp on this, or perhaps some 50/50 amonia and water in a spray bottle...don't know if it will stop delinquints from jumping on cars, but it sure will break a dog from chasing cars.
I'm old and fat, but I'm not so sure I could have restrained myself from dragging at least one of them off the top and opening a can of whoop.
I really like the idea of caning or public whipping.
I'm sure someone will cry "cruel and unusual" but I bet it would be effective!

My attorney might release a statement like this:
"They jumped off the car and attacked him. He had no choice but to use the ax handle to defend himself against two attackers. He deemed it to be the minimum amount of force required to save his life... 'Sorry about all the broken bones."
'Clinging to my guns and religion
If they're on your property and I assume your driveway is on your property it is trespassing and vandalism. Call the police, take pictures, go in the house and look up insurance agent, take a tranquilizer. If the police don't come, the kids don't leave and the tranquilizer doesn't kick-in, poke the shotty out the nearest window and aim high the first time.
