In describing the situation- I kept it vague to open the scenario for interpretation. In so doing- it limited needed information. My thought or intention was that other cars are parked there and you are essentially blocked. Also when the other car pulls up- you're still on the passenger side.
I have never drawn my sidearm durring a conflict. In that situation, I think you would have to do so before being overwhelmed.
I didn't consider getting in the car. The idea of my wife taking the wheel is an excelent one.
Also, it really makes ME think about having high capacity.
