    Would you have lifted the cover?

    I have spent some time mulling over the events that just happened in Boston and running through scenarios in my mind. I keep coming to one perplexing situation. Knowing me there is NO way I would have opened the cover on that boat had I seen that blood first... Not knowing what may have been pointing at me under that cover or what boobie trap may have been there! And to not have a gun when you opened it even makes me cringe worse. What are your thoughts?

    My job is to be here tomorrow for my family. Poking around a possible hiding place during a manhunt, for a possibly injured madman, with the hiding place marked by blood, seems a very, very poor idea.

    Now if I was wearing my double ceramic plates like Gecko45 has...

    I would've looked in, but my weapon would've been leading the way.

    Call the police and let THEM look in the boat.

    I thought it showed minimal thinking and minimal brain-power.

    No comment, other than, it would be handled.

    I would've called 911 - I also would have locked/barricaded the doors and covered the boat from 2nd story window with a firearm.

    Just flash your concealed carry badge and order him to come out with his hands up.
