Who has had to draw their piece?
Just curious and wondering which forum members have actually had to draw, and or fire their carry piece in self defense? What was the scenario? What were you thoughts afterwards? Any changes in what you would do next?
Years ago, while bartending at a remote beach bar, 3 "patrons" entered the otherwise empty establishment and ordered some drinks.
One of the guys (he was as big as a gorrila) was obviously very intoxicated and I refused him service. This made him even more beligerant and hostile and he prceeded to come behind the bar, backing me into a corner and telling me how I was about to die!
His buddies just stood there waiting to see what happened next. Seeing how I was alone, and the phone was on the wall behind him ,I produced my .44 Mag Virginian Dragoon and leveled it at his chest.
This had no effect on prince charming and he continued to stalk me.
Then one of his buddies said that he had a gun and I had better not try anything...
When I felt the end of the bar against my back, and knew that further escape was impossible, it was then and only then that I realized that I just might have to shoot this guy and perhaps some of his mates as well ! It's hard to decribe the feeling that washed over me at that moment, but it must of been obvious to the others cause when I looked at them and said "YOU BETTER GET HIM OUT OF HERE!!!"
they jumped the bar and wrestled him, kicking and screaming out to their car. One said "I saw your gun"..I got a 1911 right after....:22a:
