Your post was appreciated.
It was one of those 'had to be there' situations.
Stay armed...stay alert...stay safe!

Well done, Tally. Yeah, it was an iffy situation, but you didn't shoot anybody either. Pretty much controlled the situation until LEO arrived.
Having said that: I was an actor in a force-on-force training class a couple years ago. Set up was woman on to ao man with knife outside convience store. What do you do? Turns out she tried to stab him and he disarmed and was trying to keep the knife away from her. Didn't look that way. I'd have wanted pepper spray or equiv. and sprayed 'em both.
Confession time: years ago, many years ago, SWMBO and I were leaving a concert, in parking garage elevator stopped, we're inside w/ several others. 2 kid thugs were threatening a kid and his girl. I stepped out but SwWMBO pulled me back in, and I let her. I've regretted it ever since, many years. Hope the kid and his girl were OK. Really wasn't any danger to me; don't think the thugs were up to even odds.
Yeah, Tally, ya' done good. So much better than I.
