Driving home, late night, flagged down by guy in street
Very late night, simple 2 way street in front of a park, few cars pass through this area at night. Like 1 car every 15 mins.
Guy about mid 20s, medium build, 6' 2" waving histarically in middle of road.
cz p06 in the glove compartment, LCP in pocket ATM.
I slow down as I pass to evaluate, "maybe he was hurt or in trouble?", he seemed distressed so I stop and roll down the windows.
his composure was a bit wired/distressed. I asked if he's OK. He replies "yes! Yes!" in a very animated gesture and starts walking up to me.
But he kept walking closer to arms reach distance, so I rolled up the window partially and let off the brakes. "woah! Keep away from the car!" he said "dude, I just need gas. Can you take me to the gas station?" I tell him the gas station is just down the street really close. "c'mon man, you can take her with you there." he refers to someone at his car in the dark park entry street. "sorry, the gas station is just around the corner."
my bs meter didn't go off, I was betting he did just need gas, but there was something really off about his composure. Plus the nearest gas wasn't more than a 15 min walk.
He starts to get attitude then curses at me with foul language as I move on.
He was so upset that he didn't stop flipping the bird, to flag down the next car behind me.
Called the police. Operated confirmed police arrived on site.
I'm glad that I didn't assist the nut. Better safe than sorry. But if I had, my concealed carry wasn't optimized if there was a scurry in the car. Drawing the LCP with seatbelt on wouldve sucked. The "car gun" was locked in the glove compartment. Pepper spray is easily accessible though. Storing of a car gun, other than in the glove isn't an option for my car.
perhaps I'll just holster the car gun during transport, on these pocket carry days.
Most days aren't limited to pocket carry btw.
What do you think of that kind of situation?
