    Painful Practical Joke Attempt

    We had a pre-4th BBQ/picnic yesterday afternoon at a local park. Most of the folks there are aware of my 2A beliefs & a few know that I CC. I was CCing my S&W PC1911 in a DM Bullard Bodyguard (45 degree forward cant) at 4 o'clock all under a loose fitting Hawaiian shirt.

    One of my young (24yo) 2nd cousins decided to be "cute" & sneak up behind me (I'm 60) and snatch my weapon...ostensibly to make a point about his skill and/or my ineptitude. Reflexively, I spun left...leading with my left elbow, as I drew with my right. He realized the error of his ways when he was on his back, with a broken nose, staring up at the business end of a 1911. Luckily (for him), the Corps trained me to ID my target before firing.

    It took me a moment to process what had just happened. In those few seconds, he was crying & screaming that it was a "joke" and not to shoot (he later claimed that the crying was a reflex from having his nose broken). Two of the attendees were off duty LE. They offered to arrest my cousin for the assault & attempted theft of a firearm. My "cuz" was frantically begging me to not press charges. No, I didn't press charges. Instead, I made him swear that when asked, he would always tell the truth about how he got his nose broken.

    Not a wise move, even without the broken nose proof.

    He's lucky you didn't smoke him. Job well done, and hopefully lesson learned on his part. Our society today seems to frown on the use of physical pain as a teaching tool, but really, nothing works better.

The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    I wasnt there but I would have hoped you could have stopped your reaction before drawing your firearm.
