    I was car jacked at gunpoint

    Ok so here's the story, this happened this morning. I woke up as I normally do at 4:30 AM take the dog for a walk. Grab my cell and my gun place it on my hip get ready for my 30 minute ride to work. My daily routine is to stop off at the gas station for my morning coffee. (So far just the same as every other day). As I pull up to the gas station I place my truck into park and just then a guy runs out of the front door pointing a gun at me (he is in front of my truck as this happens). Still in a jog he rounds the drivers window of my truck (my window is down) still pointing a gun at me but now it is pressing against my temple. I just realized I came up to an armed robbery of the gas station. What’s going though my head is I have my gun on my hip, but it's at my 4 O’clock and my seat belt is still on and my truck is still running. WHAT TO DO? This dirt bag has got the jump on me and there isn't a thing I can do. I then came to my senses and realized I wasn’t going to die over something as trivial as my truck. (not going lie having a dirt bag freaking out pushing a gun into my temple was very unsettling) and as many times I played it over in my head today I don’t think I would have came out ahead on this one. I gave the truck up. I would like to give two thumbs up to the Milwaukee PD. they bent over backwards to find my truck (which they did, within an hour after it was jacked).

    I would also personally thank a member of this forum (I will keep anonymous unless he chooses to come forward you know who you are) and his hard work on getting my truck back so fast. (happened about 5;15 AM truck dusted for finger prints at work about 7:50 AM )

    I owe you brother!

    Sorry to hear about your experience but you did right by not trying to be a hero and giving up a replaceable item.

    Well, that worked out OK.
    Smart man. You can always get another truck but, they sure can't do head transplants yet.
    Glad that you are OK.
    Any potentially deadly scenario where you can walk away just minus a vehicle is a good outcome scenario.

    Very sorry to hear it Sid, glad you are OK. You did good, one of the reasons I have a car mounted holster, not to say that it would have changed anything but I feel it increases my odds of survival in many potential situations.

    It is kinda funny when co-workers got wind of this, and was surprized because they know i have my permit, but unaware of the fine line of being a justifed shooting and me spending along time behind bars.
    For example; two co-workers said they would have shot through the back window as he was leaving. I tried to explane how bad that would have become for me for doing so.

    Glad you had things turn out alright for you. Historically, stolen getaway vehicles end up totaled with other innocents injured.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. It does give the rest of us here a scenario to think about when approaching stop and robs. From now on, I will park in the back 40 when needing to go inside a stop and rob. That would put me at a lesser probability of getting caught off guard vs. my vehicle being an opportunistic easy picking right at the front door.

    But personally, I am one that doesn't give up that easy. As the dirtbag got in the driver's seat with his attention off of me and on getting away with the truck, I probably would have been in the blind spot behind the B-pillar waiting with my gun drawn waiting for him to back up into view of my muzzle. Chances are, he'd be looking over his right shoulder to back up, and I'd have the jump on him from his blind left side through the driver's window. I wouldn't care how many of my truck's windows I would have to shoot out to retire a criminal that threatened my life. Who knows how many other lives he could have endangered while in getaway mode.
