    hmmm... startled by a cell phone hands free device... ooooooh kay

    My first thought would be to grab my knife and hit the window with the top.

    He is lucky not to be seriously hurt... wonder if he has hearing damage now?

    Hearing damage sure beats the alternative. I had thought about that while running drills in my mind. Wondered how it would work, I guess now I know.

    this happended here in sacramento

    having worked as a security guard for a while on of the major rules is you don't wear anything that the company did not issue on your belt. (normally you can get away with a flashlight if they don't issue you one)

    If you are upside down under water you will use the most effective tool you can reach as quickly as possible to break the window. This guy was resourceful in thinking gun. As I probably would think knife or asp first but what he did was effective.

    There is no substitute for quick thinking and improvisation.
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

    if i were to guess i would say the guy wasnt carrying a knife or asp...resourceful is the word i would use...choice...hearing damage or potential drowning...seems like a no brainer to me...

    i was wondering if he tried to shatter the glass with the muzzle first or just came out guns a blazin...

    Now I have to say that I don't carry as a "get out of a sinking car" tool, but the guy was nothing if not resourceful!
    I find it amazing that the news did not report that the pistol attacked the window and in the mele, the man excaped

    Thanks! I'll try to remember this one, another use for my car gun. Oh, couldn't he have talked to the window instead and convinced it to roll itself down? Forgive me. Sorry. I had to do it.

    One could cover his/her own ears......but if not, at least you would survive.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
