When i was 19 i had a nice 1995 Yukon gt. it had the window broke out one time in the middle of the day. They were trying to steal my stereo. Luckily one of the neighbors saw them and called me.
About a month later i was sitting in my girlfriends driveway with her arguing about leaving my truck there overnight. Just as she was saying that it would be ok a red car drove by slow, full of people. I had dark tinted windows in my truck, they could not see me. That threw up a red flag. Next thing I knew 3 males in all black were walking up to my driver side window. When it was clear that they were coming to my truck and not just walking down the sidewalk I leaned forward enough so that they could see me. They were at least 50 feet away.
As soon as they saw me one of them lifted up his shirt and flashed a small revolver at me. Before I could think I had my truck in gear and was flying out the driveway. I looked in my mirror and realized that they were shooting at me as I drove away. As soon as it was safe I called the cops.
The worst part about the whole incident was that when the police showed up they told me that it was my own fault because I have a nice truck. They than told me not to bother calling them again unless someone was shot. This incident was what motivated me to get my ccw permit. The one thing I learned was that the cops can’t or sometimes wont be there for you. Your personal safety primarily rests upon you’re own judgment and willingness to not be victim.
Being that I was unarmed at the time I don’t know what much else I could have done. Feel free to put yourself in my shoes and comment appropriately.
