    You're at baggage claim and a gun shot rings out.....

    (Ooops sorry....can moderators move this to Concealed Carry?)


    At least in Colorado it is currently legal to concealed carry in the baggage claim area......here's the scenario....

    You arrive at the airport to pick up your daughter, flying in from the west coast. You're standing by baggage claim #3......then a shot rings out at baggage claim #2. Then a second shot, at which time you make visual contact of the shooter. Everyone around you, including your daughter quickly falls to the floor. You are carrying a 45, 1911. The shooter shoots a third and a fourth shot, turns and is walking toward you, popping people in the their skulls as they lie on the ground. He is 50 feet from you.

    What do you do?

    Make it fifty yards, so we'll have room for other options.

    Fair enough.....cause I think if the shooter is only 15-20 yards away, we have no other option than to draw and shoot.

    Ok......it 50 yards......or even further down the terminal.


    You have the option to grab your daughter and run.........or defend the defenseless..... What do you do?

    As with every other "what if" scenario, there are other variables. only one thing is certain, I'm not just standing there while all this happens.

    15 yards hard to tell since you can't carry there.
    50 yards - grab my daughter and run. I'm not John Wick.

    In most of these hypothetical scenarios, I would say grab my daughter and run, because if people choose not to protect themselves, that's not my problem. My daughters safety and my safety are my priority. Given that this is a location where people are not strictly forbidden from carrying, but the rules make it difficult for the vast majority of people to be armed, ideally I would get my daughter somewhere that she will be safe, and at that point when she is somewhere that is somewhat safe, I will engage the shooter if possible.

    Fifty yards is very do-able, especially with a full-sized .45 1911. I'm not John Wick, either.

    With my 43 and skills I'm almost certain that bullet wouldn't reach the desired target.

    Fair enough. The long shots are why I never go small with my main carry guns.

    At 50 yards, I'm going to exit stage right. Or left. Or center. But you can bet I'm exiting.
    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    Why am I carrying someone else's gun?

    50 yards against an active shooter? Assuming he's not doing the mannequin challenge, you're more likely to hit an innocent bystander.

    Like I said before grab your love ones and exit as fast as you can. You don't want to have a gun in your hand when the cops come around the corner. Just like the mall thing we talk about we are not cops.
