    I think you did well, particularly by saying nothing to the offensive ones, which could incite worse behavior. As far as letting them get too close, when in public it's impossible to maintain the 21-foot rule anyway. People are always too close.

    That's got to be a good feeling. As well, it's nice to know she's aware of the defensive value of being capable of responding to violence. Not everyone is.

    Now, she just needs to reach that next step of realizing you're not going to be there at all times. The responsibility will soon be hers, exclusively.

    That is exactly right.... especially in shopping situations.

    It worked out well, you did a good job.

    yes, they got too close but, live and learn. I doubt you will allow this to be repeated. And Good for you and your daughter for the level of Sa you both showed and that you are now working with her on shooting.
    Well if you are still in Indiana in TWO years you can get her the permit and give a handgun at 18.....Admit it; there are some good things about Hoosierland

    There is definitely something to say for knowing a second language, especially one that is popular for where you live. Both my mom and sister are pretty decent in Spanish. Many years ago, we were at a typical Mexican restaurant close to our house. A couple of the servers were standing around talking about the various women and started talking about my sister and apparently it was pretty graphic because my mom, who isn't really the type to get in your face, stood up and started yelling at them in Spanish. The waiters were horrified to realize they had been understood. The manager took care of it and needless to say, our meal was comped.

    That being said, you don't have to be fluent but if you study a short list of danger words, you can possibly avoid a nasty situation when it counts.

    Glad to hear neither of you were harmed and everything went smoothly.

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

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