Just playing around here. You get excited from an unkown expression on a lady's face. The assumption you make is the place is being robbed. You start going for your gun not knowing the circumstances. Now, if the place is getting robbed you most likely would just lose some money or the store some phones and sim cards. Good chance if the BG's saw you they might guess you were armed and now you could be in a world of hurt.

Sorry to make it sound so different than everyone else patting you on the back for your SA. But sometimes someone has to point out the flaws in ones actions during an After Action Report.
Don't confuse this with saying what you did was wrong. You were there. I am just pointing out from a devils advocate point of view how terribly wrong it could have gone.

Her face really did look like she saw a ghost, which looking back, was very odd for her to do.

I just glad it was for nothing and that I didn't 'show my hand'.
