    True story, happened to me. Some people just do some dumb things.

    So tonight I was moving a few things to the new apartment. It is a very badly lit street, and further up the road from my about two blocks or so is a well known dumpy (crime ridden) apartment complex. So by badly lit street I mean there is 1 street light down the road about a block that works. Other then that it is completely pitch black.

    So I'm walking back out to my car at about 9:00 pm and from behind me someone yells Hey very loudly and angrily. I instinctually spin around and put my hand on the grip of my gp100 as I star into the darkness trying to make out the image of this stocky shadow. This person was about 10 or 15 feet from me and I still get not see anything but a dark outline. Unsure of who they were or to what extent of a threat they were I replied who the heck are you (as I begin to back step to draw them into a dimly lit parking lot, in which is a corner I can use for cover).

    She (yes she lol) quickly says oh sorry about that I thought you were someone else. It appears this is a friend (lesbian, explains the voice, no offence I'm supportive of the gay community so don't get bent out of shape) of the lesbian neighbors I have. Apparently from behind I look like another neighbor that hangs out with them. It was all good after that, I introduced myself and we went on our marry way. I hope that is the last dark shadowy surprise I get in the middle of the night outside my new place. And my girlfriend would surely not enjoy such an encounter.

    You got my vote.

    You should contact your city muckety muck mucks and request a new street light. Recruit the neighbors on your side of the DMZ. Any deals to be had on 3rd generation NVGs your way??

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    So basically nothing happened other than you were mistaken for a lesbian? :)
    The worst thing about growing old is that other men no longer see you as dangerous.

    lol mistaken for a male neighbor :) Although that could have just been a cover up story on her part so maybe I was mistaken for a lesbian.

    Never had it happen to me. Street lights are good in LA. But I suggest working on those glutes.

    This is why I always carry a Stream-light protac 2L. 5 inches, 6.5 oz, and it would have lit that woman up like the sun. I highly recommend you look in to getting something similar.

    I am going to play Mr. pedantic language person here. You went on your "merry" way. As in happy or gay. If you were to go on your "marry" way with the aforementioned lesbian, your girlfriend might get upset, and everyone would be confused, and it might violate your state's law. Just tryin' to help.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I don't point out people's grammatic or spelling errors unless either they are trying to show intellectual superiority, or it is funny. This would be the latter. I make plenty of errors myself. And back on topic, i will be carrying concealed at an annual motorcycle campout next weekend hosted by a "women's motorcycle club". Nice broads, we have a lot in common, such as being rough and tough, enjoying motorcycles, and women.

    lol indeed that is comical. I admit I am no English major. You'll likely find plenty of similar opportunities in many of my posts.
