    Had to pull my gun the other night.

    I work second shift, on the weekends i work 12 to 9.

    Me and the wife decided to go to the Black Angus after i got home on Sunday night, about 930.

    I was carrying my GP100 and the wife had her LCR.

    Dinner came, ate, luckily i just ordered water. Had to go to the bathroom, the receptionist deck is right in front of the bathroom hallway there, then it branches to a T for mens and womans.

    I turned left, and there was the receptionist, with a guy, she saw me turn the corner and she had a wide eyed scared look on her face, the guy tried his best to look inconspicuous. I go in, thinking that was odd, and hear them arguing while i am in there.

    I come out, just in time to see him slap her. I say, "dont you think that was uncalled for?". He pulls a knife, and says "why dont you get the F outta here before i slice your ass off?"

    I am thinking "seriously"? The girl starts crying and pleads with the guy not to do it. I pull my gun and say "why dont you just stand there while i give your girlfriend my phone to call 911 for assault?"

    The girl has a "Your busted" look on her face, now, and they guy has a "oops, i messed with the wrong dude look on his face. I asked her if she wanted to use my phone, she said yes, now the guy is still just standing there, all he had to do was run away, she is calling and he is begging her not to, i am no longer pointing the gun at him, its by my side.

    The cops got there in 5 min.

    "DROP THE GUN" he says, i set it on the floor, he comes and checks my id and license and his partner grabs the guy, the girl and i get interviewed seperatley, and she must have filed charges on him too, he wet bye bye in the police car. after that i put the gun in the car, and the wife and i had a drink

    Great job....being that he had a weapon I would have ordered him to the floor and kept my weapon trained on him. I still think you handled the situation properly and with great care and restraint and should be commended. Hopefully the girl is no longer associated with him in any manner.

    Yep, I would've done the same thing... Or, at least I think I would have. I guess one never knows how they're going to respond when something like that goes down... But, great job by the OP!

    "Great job....being that he had a weapon I would have ordered him to the floor and kept my weapon trained on him."

    ^^ Yeah, I would not have left him standing. Ordering him to the floor would have made his running off more difficult and increased everyone else's safety.

    I won't say shoulda/coulda on your actions, but maybe a call to 9-11 before speaking to him might--and I mean might--have been a better initial course seeing as a battery had already taken place.

    All in all, things turned out well for all but the guy, and kudos to you.

    That's the way to stay calm and in control.....but if he would have lunged at you or her the scenario would have had a different outcome I'm sure....good job.

    Thumbs up

    I think many of us can think of things we'd have done slightly differently.

    But there's a big difference between kicking back at the keyboard and reacting in the moment. You were there, and made a string of decisions that lead to a good outcome.

    Nice work!

    Until the knife is out of play, the gun stays centered on his chest. You could be stabbed before you could get your gun back in play.
