It sounds like it was a close call. In order to increase the awareness of your companions, did you have a good "debriefing" and discussion with them about your close call experience?
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

Not really. I needed to decompress and having them being jovial(oblivious) and whatnot helped me decompress.

Looks like you did good. Avoidance is usually the better option. I screwed up last week in NoVA myself and engaged rather than avoided. Caught me at a slow moment I guess. Sounds like you did much better. Don't forget to explain to your friends why you "missed" the turn.

Kavity---There is nothing wrong with avoinding another human being by turning around and going the other way, or telling the other person to stop advancing. If you haven't read "In the Gravest Extreme"-Mas Ayoob, you should consider going over the chapter again about avoidence. In that Mas talks about stopping and going the other way or crossing to the other side of the street, or Flat out using a couple of bucks to toss to the guy weighted down using a match book. I know alot of people have this nature of "I don't want to give the guy money!" I agree with you 100%, but thats where the going the other way comes into play. If that fails the $1 you throw to him to make him to go away is piddly compared to 1000's of dollars you have to spend on a lawyer, and the possible civil case

At least you were aware of it and were prepared. Nobody had anything bad happen to them, so I mark that as handling it accceptably.
I would definitely explain what you saw happening to your friends. It might open their eyes a little bit.
