    The first thought that comes to my mind is "disparity of force"...That in itself, along with the presence of her child, and the actions being performed by the perv, were more than suffiecient to present her weapon.

    For those that automatically "pooh pooh" her choice to present, then look in the mirror and ask yourself "What if it were my wife, my daughter, my child, my grandchild...what if it were just a young girl walking in the park...would I want them to prepare to defend themselves, more importantly, present their weapon?" If you can still say, nahhhhh, it wasn't necessary, then I personally feel for you as a professed "man".

    Someone mentioned, was the perv inside 22 feet. I could care less if it was 30 feet, 21 feet, or five feet. My feelings are she had every right to prepare to defend herself and her child. PERIOD

    Should she have better training with her weapon..YUP...Should she carry loaded and ready to rock n roll...YUP...Did she and her child walk away unharmed..YUP So good job gal!!!!

    Could she have presented her weapon, perhaps instead of saying "I'm gonna blow your brains out", a better choice would have been "Hold what ya got there buddy while I call 911" as she backs away with her child from his presentation...

    Bottom line is, in my eyes, he's a threat to the lady...he's a threat to the child...As others have said on here, and this is an example, you don't always have to shoot when you present your weapon, but you better darn sure be prepared to if it's necessary.

    This whole thread really irks me...JMO

    Wow!!! That's all I have to say about that post.

    To the lady's tactics - Carry loaded with one in the pipe.

    To the lady's SA - you should listen to those feelings. The article stated she carried for the first time (to the lake) because she just had a feeling about that day. If you have a feeling that you are about to go into harm's way, and you have a choice - don't go.

    You guys crack me up.

    Facts: she felt threatened. She pulled out a gun. Threat neutralizes without firing a shot. She was previously a sexual assault victim.

    Stupid comments: it was only a 380. the gun wasn't manly enough. Yup, if it was a (40, 45, 9mm, 10mm, 44, or your personal caliber of choice), she would have been "more right."

    If she was your mother, wife, sister - would you be glad that she defended herself? Or would you belittle her for not doing what all of you armchair quarterbacks think you might have done.

    I'll close with a final fact: she pulled out a gun in self defense. Mose of us never have. Maybe we should be asking her for some advice?

    With respect to previously having been a victim: in most states, at least everyone that I know of, this is completely irrelevant. Past actions, even by a particular aggressor do NOT justify a current use of force.

    I've given some thought to this after my first instinct which was that she should not have drawn a firearm. I hold a pretty high bar when it comes to presenting a firearm with threat of lethal force. But after more consideration (and not being a woman) I realized that you have to take into account the nature of the assault. Although the perp didn't seem to threaten her physically, I think you have to consider the fact that his act of "flashing" (and other things) would suggest to any normal person that this guy is not psychologically sound. To me, this elevates the level of the threat. I think she did the right thing.
