Scenario: You come home...
This is a real-world event from five or so years back.
You come home, alone or with your wife, family, whatever. You live in an area with spotty cell phone coverage at the time, and as luck would have it, it's not working that day.
You're living in an apartment building with only one way in or out of your apartment other than 2nd floor windows, and as you walk into the lobby, there is a large, unkempt man screaming obscenities and telling you that he's going to f'in kill you. Your eyes move to the 4' stick in his hand (yes, 4', not 4").
You're armed. So is he. You haven't even said a word - just walked in, and you've never seen the dude before in your life.
There's no way to quickly dart past him or get to your door and get into the apartment.
(and I'll post the actual event and the discussions with the local powers that be after a while - and I no longer live there largely because of this and a similar incident).
WEll, You Sure Can Tell This Isn't GlockTalk
NOBODY said they would just shoot the stick right out of his hands yet! :got-hooli
