    +1 for calling 911 every time your weapon is out of its holster in public.

    First ensure you are personally safe. If not safe, take action or depart quickly to safe location.

    Call 911 and follow instructions. Hopefully you have a concealed telephone (aka cellphone)

    good example of this: thread of tow truck driver who drew after road rage incident:

    I say to myself "Hey look free gun, I might need this when Hillary gets elected". OK just kidding I call 911 and wait for LEO to arrive.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    "Hey look free gun..."
    Found one while at college in Southern California (gosh, am I thrilled to be here instead!).

    There was a hazmat incident in our Chem building, and one of the officers was overcome. They evidently brought him outside, laid him down, and 'loosened constrictive clothing' (they removed his duty belt with all the toys). The ambulance came and took him away, and I spotted the belt in the grass some time later.

    If I remember correctly, I carried the securely-holstered gun by the far end of the duty belt so as not to look like a threat, and sent my pal in to the police station first to warn them I was coming in - no cell phones those days.

    Everything was cool (I worked for them at the time as a kid with a radio and keys, so I was kind of family already), and they were quite appreciative. I don't know if anyone got chewed on aftewards.

    This was long ago in 38 special revolver days. Had it been a Glock, it would have been harder.

    Call 911...check.
    Wait for PD. ...check.
    If in danger secure orphaned gun (without contaminating with prints) and extract self from danger. ...check.
    Then call 911 again. ... check.

    911 is your only real option. Don't take the gun! You have no idea what that gun had been used for. With my luck it would end up being the gun used by the guy on the grassy knoll the day Kennedy was shot!

    The good news is that you have some significant poof that you were in danger (the dropped gun with the BG's fingerprints on it). And I'm guessing that if the police ID the BG, odds are he won't have a CCW permit, so his excuses will sound pretty lame to the police.

    If I pull leather or show my gun I will be on the phone to 911.

    In your case, call asap, and if you can safely secure the "dropped" gun without touching it, that's what I would do. Hint, stand over it while on the phone to 911.

    First thing to do is keep yourself safe, then worry about the other stuff.

    The first rule of gunfighting should be to know when the gunfight starts - being the last one to get the news certainly won't put the odds in your favor.

    I have to agree... I have had my CCW license for 6 years, pulled once, and the BGs fled. I was on the phone with 911 before my gun was reholstered. My instructor told gave class a valuable piece of advice... "After drawing your weapon, it's a race to the phone." Absolutely could not be more true. More often than not, the police look at it that the victim will be the one to make the call.

    Exactly! If some witness calls 911, they are going to describe you as a guy with a gun wearing what ever you are wearing. They don't know who you are and the fact that you have a permit. Your best bet is to call 911, give them your side of the story and ask them to let the responding officer know that you have a permit and you are armed. If they know who you are before they arrive, they will more then likley be more pleasent to you when they arrive.

    To prevent a "brandishing" charge later, I would be on the cell phone calling 9-1-1 ASAP.

    Call 9-1-1 immediately. After giving my side of the story and a description and direction of travel of the suspect I would then beg forgiveness for being slow enough to let him get away, and pray that I don't get deported back to Maryland.

    depends on what kind of pistol he dropped
