    Very glad she's ok and the encounter ended well. If he was that close it could have gone poorly...but obviously he figured she was enough of a threat to him to bolt. Thank God for that! I can't and won't say she did the wrong thing, but I certainly understand and share the concern. He could have gone for her weapon, and the element of surprise would have been his. Alternative action: drop the leash, create quick distance, hand on gun (still hidden), ask him to 'please leave.' Make sure she's not followed back to her room and at least call the front desk when she gets back to report a suspicious character. If her gun was clearly seen, call the police so hers will be the first call.

    But she did identify herself as a dangerous person--there's gotta be something to be said for that. BG's like easy targets. Glad she wasn't one!

    I do believe that dog means business!

    Right on bro... we are all learning everyday we carry.

    Maybe a solid command from her like "this conversation is over, now leave me alone" as she backed away or something simular would have told that guy she didn't care for his remarks and then if necessary, like the guy starting to pursue her, she could have armed herself at low ready. Just brainstorming.

    I have used the phrase as someone undesirable approaches me, "I can't help you!" With my off hand raised in a palm out, stop right manor. The person usually stops too!
