    I'm curious as well, did the BG's see your gun? If so, do you feel that stopped the potential threat of robbery by the two?

    I believe the threat was obvious enough that you were justified in presenting your weapon. Good job. Good outcome.

    That's my question, also. If they did see the gun, did they remain standing around to see what was going to happen?

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    The LCP is very powerful up close and personal, I carry a Kel Tec P3AT for the same reason.

    Had one of them presented a weapon you would on not been under gunned as long as you are well practiced with the 380.

    What ammo do you carry in LCP and what pocket holster do you carry it in?

    You did very good!!!!!!!

    I'm waiting for an answer, too.

    The possiblities that come to my mind:
    • The garage @ the Avenues Mall.
    • The garage @ One of the hospitals.

    the presentation is what impressed me the most...low and ready...not really brandishing by any means....more informative and prepared...that and you cutting off the guy from going behind you while you steered your mom into your protection and cleared the line of sight & fire to the potential thieves...


    did you notice a trickle coming out of either of their pant legs?...

    Good work. Glad you showed your mother that guns aren't always evil :)

    There are MANY times every year when the mere presentation of a firearm is enough to prevent very bad things from happening.

    Sometimes that is all that is required.

    That is why I absolutely hate to hear... "I'll only DRAW my firearm if I'm going to shoot!" from some members.

    I don't know WHERE that came from and/or how that ever got started but, whoever has learned that should UNlearn it in a big hurry.
    Well put! I was thinking the same thing as I read this thread. My first true line of defense is to use my head and good judgment.

    In my mind I see the BG's in a stalemate of indecision: "Whoa, he pulled what looks like a gun. But he's not pointing it. Is it real? If it is real, does he have the balls to use it? Is my BG buddy in a position to disarm him? Is this worth the risk? What is my buddy going to say if I back down?" followed by several repeats of the above thoughts. Weighing the positives/negatives and eventually the presence of a potential gun outweighing everything else.

    That's probably completely wrong but that's what immediately went through my head while I was reading the OP.

    It was at a mall on a wednesday night, I'm not positive of the name, I've only been to Jacksonville twice. (I was visiting for the weekend,) which is why my mom filed the report, becuase she knew the area.
    To answer the other common question, both their eyes darted to the LCP right away. Their eyes stayed on it for a good fifteen seconds before I moved.I was very confident they would both be on the pavement before they could touch either of us. I was worried that somebody could approach us from behind while we were distracted as well, so I just wanted to get moving as quick as possible. I was suprised that there were so few people in the garage, luckily we we're close to my Jeep.
    And finally my pocket holster is UncleMike's, and the LCP was loaded with Buffalo Bore Gold dot, my Dad keep it in his P3-AT, so I just mooch off of him ususally. I had one in the tube, ready to rock. Thankfully, I didn't have to.
