    What would you do?

    Two weeks ago you were at a bar for a party for the workers of a construction company that had just finished a road construction project that was built 20 miles outside of town. You are the job superintendent for the entire project. (everyones boss) While at the bar (you are not carrying, but you do have a pistol in your pickup) an employee that you fired a few months ago comes up to you and demands a drink. You buy him a drink. He slams it and demands another drink. You buy him another drink. He slams it and demands another drink. You then beat the hell out of him in the bar. Cops come, and lucky for you a local rancher that you bought all the aggregate materials from for the project (who must have had something on the local police) tells the police that you are a good guy, the other guy deserved it and they let you go. The local guy you fired, and beat up, is yelling threats about killing you and getting even.

    Two weeks later you are moving to another state for a different construction project. You are driving your pickup, pulling a trailer with your wifes car on it. In the front seat of your regular cab pickup is you, your 3 month old son, and your wife. Under the seat of your pickup is a Ruger Vaquero .45 long colt, and a Ruger P94 .40. You need gas and your wife is hungry. You stop in the town that you beat the hell out of the guy two weeks ago. (25,000 pop.) You pull into the gas station that has a Burger King next door, so your wife can walk over and get some food while you, and your 3 month old son strapped in his car seat in the middle of the pickup, fill up with gas.

    Your wife walks off to Burger King and you proceed to fill up with gas. A car pulls into the same pump, but on the other side. You turn around to look at the driver and it is the guy you beat up two weeks ago. You recognize each other at the same time as he is getting out of his car. He briskly steps around the gas pump to your side and is within 10 feet of you with a knife in his hand at his side.

    What did you do?

    Tell him to drop the knife, if not, shoot. A guy within 10 feet of me with a knife that threatened to kill me is going to get shot if the knife doesn't hit the pavement.

    Now with that being said, I would not be in that situation. Why? I don't hang out at bars with my employees. I don't buy drinks for a person I fired. I don't beat up drunks that are morons.

    I would spray him with gas immediately. He has threatened to kill me and has a knife in hand and is approaching me.

    Beat him again and stick the knife up his rectum.

    I always gas up with my weak hand. Reluctantly spray him with the overly expensive gas as I draw. Cant afford to pay for much gas so just enough to surprise him. What happens after that is up to him.

    Really? I'd have never thought. I wouldn't buy him more than one drink--if that, period. What says I owe him anyhow? I'm in the dose-him-with-gas-and-ask-him-for-a-match camp.

    Rectum damn near killed him .

    I am not dealing with fired employees no need to buy him a drink . If the person comes at you with an open knife and with verbal threats very good chance i am pulling the trigger .

    Because my wife will be coming back soon and would not want her tangled in this mess .

    What did you do?

    Wish I hadn't been such a fool to beat up the guy because he was demanding drinks, and then I would defend myself like my life depended on it.

    Just remember when throwing your 3 month old make sure to throw by the legs to get more momentum.
