    Got mugged Thursday night.

    Welp two guys last Thursday tried to mug me.
    This was mostly my own stupidity, but still who tries to mug someone walking barefoot?
    I had gotten in an argument with my roommates, which ticked me off so to cool down I took a walk....a 20 mile walk through town. Well about half way through I see two guys walking very intently towards me. I know they are up to no good, call it gut or what ever. They both say to me as they get closer "Hey man give us a cigarette" I say "I dont got one, I havent got anything" They now start yelling at me "Come on give us something, we know you got it" at this point they are about 5 feet away. I tell them then "Guys I havent got anything, Im freaking barefoot" which I point out then. That when the guy on the left yells something and grabs my shirt. I truely lost my temper then and grabbed his hand and twisted it till I heard snapping. After that the other guy charges me, and I start hitting him and his Scum Bag buddy. I finally stop hitting them after they are on the ground, and see 2 more guys running from awhile off towards me. I took off running and kinda got lost for a bit. Needless to say things ended poorly and I got really lucky. I was kicking myself the whole way back home.
    One I let them get to close, two I left the house unarmed because I was so mad I didnt trust myself to be armed, and three I spent 2 hours hiding and running to the point that I finally just went to sleep when I got to the house and didn't even call the police till Friday afternoon, and they just said it was a little late to do anything about it.
    The one time Im unarmed is the day I get mugged.....
    The good news is I didnt get hurt by them, and they got the snot beat out of them for trying to mug me.
    The bad news I hurt both hands and left leg from hitting them. I currently am walking with a cane I hurt my left leg so bad.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    that could have been much worse. Way to handle yourself!

    sorry for the minor injuries, or major leg injury, but things turned out for the best. good thing you didnt stick around for the other 2 fellaz running up.

    very glad you're ok!

    just a reminder to stay armed..

    Wow, I'm glad to hear you are doing fine and the situation was not worse that it turned out to be.

    As far as leaving your firearm at home... don't beat yourself up too badly about it. I think you made the right decision. If you were mad enough to take a 20 mile walk barefoot, you probably didn't need to be armed. You recognized that that was not a good frame of mind to be in while armed and you made a wise decision to leave it at home. Quite possibly, those two muggers would be dead and you'd be dealing with the consequences all because you were mad at your roommates.

    Congratulations on defending yourself successfully!!! I think you did fine.

    I have to say i had a smile on my face picturing the look on your face when you said "i dont have anything im freaking barefoot"

    and the smile didn't leave as i pictured you beating the snot out of them barefoot...

    A 20 mile walk is quite a walk though i have to say.

    Glad you're ok, maybe next time you feel the need to cool down try not to walk into an area with your SA down. Kudos for leaving your firearm when your judgement might not be the best... ive been there.

    +1 I agree!You stated you were not in your normal state of mind,I think it was a good idea to walk away from your argument with friends unarmed!You made the right choice!Glad you are ok,What happened is unfortunate but a lesson for others to learn about the choices they may make!Good for you defending yourself with your barehands.

    yea - considering how it worked out in the end with only minor injuries, it may have worked out for the best that you didn't have it in this case.

    Well i'm sorry you got mugged, However it maybe wasn't a bad thing, that you weren't armed. After all, Think about how a post shooting interview would have sounded to the Police. "Well I was Mad and I left the house Armed...BLAH Blah Blah Blah...."

    Glad you're OK.

    20 mile walk barefoot? Is that a typo? That would be a 5-7 hour walk and I don't know how you feet could take it unless you're a Kenyan marathoner!

    I agree. Better to walk away with a couple brusises then having to shoot someone. But I also agree you should of been armed. Lesson learned now let's move on.

    Glad you are OK.....

    Honestly, I don't see anything in the story that would justify a shoot...so best you didn't have a weapon.

    I'm glad you're ok. I guess someone who can go for a 20 mile walk barefoot can pretty much handle any situation. My only comment is that you should have called the police right away to report an attempted mugging so you'd be on record in case those scumbags decided to report that THEY were mugged!

    I agree.

    The gun was not needed in this case, from where I sit. You proved that you didn't need a gun in this case, although the next one may not go as well.

    While I admire you reticence to carry your firearm in this case I do have pause at you wishing you had your gun with you. There was nothing from what I read that would justify having your gun with you, but like I said, the next one may not go as well. Two on one can justify the use of deadly force in some circumstances, even if the assailants are unarmed.

    Bumps and bruises heal, soreness goes away. I look at bruises, soreness, aches and pains as nature's way of telling you not to do something again. I'm glad you are not too much the worse for wear.

    Take care and stay safe.

    You know, in the movies, the GG beats up on the BG and NEVER has an injury from it. Perhaps you should move to Hollywood.

    Seriously, glad you are OK. I am not sure I would have fared as well as you did. Injuries heal. Pride heals. Learning from the experience...priceless.
