I would take the poll, but you do not provide an answer for me. I drew my weapon, but didn't fire. My GSD alerted to something, or someone in the brush late at night when I was working on my car. Because I heard people walking, talking, I knew someone was in an area they should not be. I holstered my weapon after the GSD moved into a relaxed state. I moved back from the shadows and continued to work on the car. 4 kids walked by the house a few minutes later.
Did I overreact. I don't think so. So, no poll answer for me."
There is a pattern here. I hope the only thing you do is upset those of us on this forum. If your posts are legit. someone is likely to get hurt and your life will be ruined.
