    If you stop, you're sure not in fear of your life, and you've arguably become a willing participant in the escalation. This is a good way to go to jail.

    Back to the topic of the thread: If you're Dirty Harry, you shoot the engine block with your .44 magnum. "The most powerful handgun in the world." :)
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

    Not considering any other superfluous and extraneous factors, a Barrett .50 cal API to engine block will pretty much do the deed.

    Probably wouldn't even need AP, API or even APIT ammo. Ball will suffice I would think.

    As for Dirty Harry, I'll bet that if those movies were remade today, he'd be carrying a 500 S&W Magnum. No doubt.

    Your time was better spent driving; well done! In aviation, there is a saying the often applies elsewhere...in an emergency, "Aviate, Navigate, Communicate"...the idea is, do those things in that order! Sounds like just keeping the car on the road was the important thing to do...crashing your car trying to get a shot off would have done the truckers job for him!
