I'll be real honest here...the distraction factor works. That's why the BG uses it.Thank god she wasn't hot or allot of us might have been toast.

Good job. also consider the use of a bright flashlight to light em up. Most criminals like to work in low light, not be spotlighted.

+1! A good blast from a tactical grade flashlight will pretty much end most "interviews".
consider the use of a bright flashlight

One of the best defensive tools of all time, and they're even legal to bring on an airplane. Anywhere at night (even my backyard) I feel a lot safer knowing I've got fist full of sunlight (ok, and a holster full of gold dots). Surefires are worth every penny. Love my Z2.

Good job. You did well.
I bet you can't wait for that permit to arrive.

I really don't think that the area has gone to bad. You do hear more about things that happen than we used to. that's for sure.
On the flashlight note, I did have one with me on my waist at ~4:30.
It's not a spectacular one. S&W tac light somethingerother. doesn't throw surefire light but it is powered by surefire 123's. Fairly bright and metal. ~4.5" long.
It's on a belt look with a snap flap holster.
However, now that I'm thinking on it. If I were to have gone to my back like that, then *snap* and I come around with something. That may have escalated the situation in my case.
I had kept a good distance between us already.
I did have it in case things went past the point it did, though.
