After reading some of these posts and thinking about it. I think I'm going to start using the drive-through unless I HAVE to go inside. I typically go inside because it seems faster, but I suppose it's not worth the slim chance of something happening.

Well, I hate to rely on Hollywood for anything but entertainment but the movie Heat was interesting and had what I thought was a semi realistic bank robbery. Your money is insured and you don't lose a dime. Bank robbery in and of itself is a serious crime but murdering hostages in the process is a guarantee of life without parole, a serious consideration for someone who is simply trying to get rich quick. Being hustled into a back room doesn't necessarily mean execution although I would sure as hell get real nervous. Only thing I could think I would try to do is if I did end up in a room, to put myself in a position where I could have some kind of advantage and pray they don't try to bind my hands before I got a chance to draw.

IMHO, you should plan ahead and do all banking in the daytime. Avoid ATM's, if at all possible possible and always use the drivethru.

I agree, I think I would lay low and try to memorize as many details about the BG/BG's as I could and be as good a witness as possible. I would only resort to drawing my weapon if it was clear that they were going to start shooting people.
