I would get some OC as it's good to have other
tools. ASP batons are nice but, you can't carry

I think your actions were correct. Dont skip your evening walks because of some idiot with a dog, he refuses to control. Off topic a bit but my neighbor told me they were out walking and a dog she thinks was a stray growled at her. I have seen the dog near my yard once or twice. If it growls at my 1 1/2 year old daughter while she is out playing it WILL be dead.

I think going behind your wife was a good idea on another count - it's easier to get jumbled up with her if you try to go in front. Going behind lets you keep track of her, her movements, and the dog and also keeps her movements (arms) from interfering with your draw.
On a side note, if you shoot at a dog that's really close to you and miss, or the bullet goes through the dog, the bullet will disintegrate on impact with concrete.

Tactically speaking or otherwise, I think if I had used my wife as a "human shield", she'd be speaking with a divorce lawyer by now.
I'm just saying...
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."

I'm not worried about her anger level. It is her fault. I'm not saying anything bad about my wife. Wonderful person, my best friend. But like most people, always assumes the best, rather not consider the worst.

Here is where I think she will do fine (Home SD). I'm not sure if she would do well outside the home.
So, since she does not carry every day, if she had a problem with what I did (and she does not), I would suggest she start carrying or let me know how she is going to take care of the situation next time.
