    As someone once said, "beat it." Sometimes it's better to run or take refuge within your vehicle in such situations. As a concealed weapons carrier, you have an extra obligation to try to defuse situations that can develop into one where you may be forced to use your weapon.

    A call to 911 is always prudent. The cops would rather come out and not have much to do than to have to come and open an investigation.

    You can't ever have the last word.

    You can't ever give the finger.

    You have to take being cussed at.

    You have to apologize even when its not your fault.

    You can never cause a situation to escalate, because you know that deadly force can be introduced into any confrontation.

    Because of this, the courts hold you to a higher standard of conduct.

    It is a big burden to carry a gun all of the time, not a "gee this is cool" kind of thing. Keep your head down. Keep your attitude humbled. Avoid if at all possible. But, when it is time to act, act decisevely. I think that this has alread been said 2 dozen different way. Best -
