    An odd use for a firearm

    Check out this article:

    Man shoots his way out of sinking SUV - Vehicular weirdness- msnbc.com

    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!

    Gotta be some hearing damage there. I carry one of those little hammers that shatter glass readily available in my car. Don't know if I would use my gun to break windows... unless it was Microsoft Windows. (sorry)

    you can buy some mtechs for about 10 bucks with seatbelt cutters, and glass breakers a pistol might be overkill.

    Not to pile on the poor guy, and I applaud his quick thinking, but I'm wondering if anyone who can be "startled by a cell phone" into driving off the road is of the right temperment to be an "armed security guard," or an armed anything, for that matter?!?

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

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

    I wonder how the guys hearing is after shooting himself out of a car.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    That was fast thinking. People die around here by running off the road into the canals. Just another reason for people to get their ccw permits. Just kidding but not a bad idea.

    Not to say it is the prefered tool for the job, but hey, use the tools that are available to survive. Maybe he will expand his toolkit now.

    Quick thinking saved his life.
