I had a stop light incident a few years ago. I was returning from my mother's house (across town) early in the morning (3 am) and was stopped at a light behind a car fill with young men. They started getting out. I wasn't sure if I had chambered a round...so I held it up to the light and checked. I guess the young men saw it and jumped back in their car and ran the red light. Since I had worked that city for many years...I wasn't that upset. I was in a Big Locked Jeep Cherokee and knew if I really needed to I could get away even if it meant rolling over a couple of them. The way they jumped back in that car and ran...they were up to no good. I didn't aim it their way...but they saw I was not a easy mark. I continued home without further incident.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Reminds me of a time years ago some friends and I were returning from a night out on the town and apparently one of us had been eating too many boiled eggs and drinking brew. Someone cut the cheese and mercifully, we had to stop for a traffic light. The tires hadn't completely stopped rolling before the doors flew open and we all bailed into the street gasping for air. Thankfully no one pulled a roscoe or I would have had a hard choice to make. Death by firing squad or get back in the car. After all these years I'm still not sure what I would have done

WOW, I'm glad things were more relaxed when I was young. Often ties we would be screwing with someones car to "get more out of her", like a Pinto with rusted out floors could ever be cool. After a few miles we would switch drivers to see if you could tell any difference or get a second opinion on if the brakes were really on the floor or not or what ever. So at the light it was like a Chinese fire drill with guys jumping out and running around the car to change spots. Sounds like that could be a dangerous activity in some areas.
should have shot a hole in the trunk lid and the bumper for him, he could then tie the trunk closed

Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.

Nothing happened, and you WERE aware of your surroundings.
Some people would never have noticed.
All's well that ends well.
