    Actually I remember seing a documentry on bullet "proof" resistant materials a while back. One of the more recent developements in armored glass is a "one way" bullet resistant material. I don't know how effective it is, but this does make the situation seem just a bit more ominous.

    I would most likely have sat there and dialed 911, right after I snapped a pic of the moron with my camera phone. I would also most definately press charges.

    Even if he thought he has armour piercing stuff, if he shoots, it would both instant Karma and the law of natural selection working on him.

    Unless he honesty thought you were trying to hold up the truck he was breaking the law by brandishing. Report him... and I would have called 911.

    You should have called Brinks right then. I have a camera phone and that is a situation where it would have served best

    BTW, I did have a conversation with the bank manager in which I explained the whole situation and he was horrified. He promised to call the company and make sure that it did not happen again. We'll see.

    Ya' know, if there wasn't just the minute chance he would have opened the door to shoot, it could have been fun to have walked up to the door and screamed like a maniac.

    I seem to recall the saying "Never share a fox hole with a hero" reason being, he is the heroic FOOL who will get others killed.

    This driver sounds like a "hero" to me. If I were his partner, I'd ask to be reassigned.

    The actual saying is "Never share a foxhole with someone braver than you."

    As long as you aren't a coward that shouldn't be a problem.

    "Braver than you", "braver than you are", "braver than yourself"......."a hero"...IMHO, it amounts to the same thing......How brave was the fool who pointed his sidearm through bullet proof glass, at an innocent man?

    He sounds like a coward to me.

    And don't forget that his partner was in the line of fire.
