today I had a guy cut me off and brake check me. then when I passed him, he followed me for a while. he eventually gave up, but I'm wondering at what point would it have been appropriate to introduce my .38 into the situation, if ever. I know protocol is to drive to a police station and/or call the police, but let's say he stops me suddenly, or I don't have my phone on me, or I'm far away from a police station, etc. so, if we both stop and he is approaching my car, when is it gun time? as soon as he gets out and is angrily walking towards me, I can safely assume he means to hurt me, right? or....should I wait in the car with window closed, and if he goes to open the door, then reach for the gun?
I'm going thru 100 different scenarios in my head, and any advice is appreciated.
