Heh, if somebody were to run out in front of my vehicle in that situation, they'd have a real bad day, because I would not stop. Up and over, baby!

We do plan potty breaks to the extent possible, however, this particular stretch of road has a distinct lack of turnouts on the downhill side. I do know she'll pee in the seat before we stop there again....

Jeep is a highly under rated caliber IMO excellent knock down power and extremely accurate even in full auto

Way to go.
You were at the least in condition yellow ramped up to orange in an instant. Better than starting in white!
Glad everything is fine.

Cudos! Great cool head there. I am so glad the family was OK from this incident.

Sounds like everything went well and I think it was managed correctly.
Sure there may have been a few things you could have done differently... but there always will be.
Bottom line is that you didn't do anything wrong!
Way to stay alert and good job on leaving immediately!
No reason to hang around to wait and see! Just get on your way and avoid any potential bad situations.

1) You kept you and yours safe.
2) You lived to tell about it.
3) You shared it with us. This is another lesson in the training file marked "Real Life Encounters."

Outstanding. You can take away your own lessons and a lot of comments on the caliber/capacity issue.
But really, what it comes down to is this: The best way to win a gunfight is to not go to one. You dusted-off at the right time. Given your position and situation? I think most of us would be hard-pressed to do anything else for our kids. Well done.

no critique here...darn fine job. I have little ones myself, and that was the best way to handle it...stand guard, and much easier to use that vehicle to get family out of there than it is to fight, shoot and kill 4+ scumbags...way to use your head, and think clearly...and +1 for the wife to act quickly.
Adrenaline is a strange duck...just think if you could bottle that and sell it...that is what caused the shakes afterward.
I have felt the same way about carrying my jframe at times..it is plenty of gun in most situations, but once in a while that hi-cap mag carries alot of comfort.
god bless you and your family
