    You were a bit confrontational, and let them get a bit close, but otherwise did great. Nice job.

    I think you did pretty well considering the surprise and adrenaline aspects, which I think are being somewhat ignored. I would not have done nearly as well as you, calling me names is no big deal, however, threats are my weak point and things would have escalated from there (not saying that is right and I have gotten MUCH better since acquiring the responsibility of carrying). One thing that I really struggle with is the view of ignoring these types or hiding out in the office or avoiding all confrontation etc....Ya know its my country also and right is right, wrong is wrong....

    Oh, BTW, it apparently slipped past most everyone here but 5 feet might be a bit close

Since you did not identify yourself, they know you're not one. They decide to give you more crap, which you did not like, of course.
    +1. In retrospect, looking at it from the other guy's viewpoint is always a worthwhile task.

    5 feet might be too close but this is the real world, not the ideal scenario world. I think you handled it very well.

    Was the man 5 feet away AFTER you backed up? If I were that man and you were only 5 feet away, even if I was unarmed, I believe it would not even take 1/2second to knock you down good.

    Yea, I would have done that too, save me the trouble.

    So those men would not have legal recourse to sue him? What if he was in court and he said "that man sprayed me and I did nothing threatening" (and what if there were no witnesses to hear/see the per sieved threats?

    What if the guy had asma and almost died, I guess he could sue you just as well if you pulled a gun on him.

    I'd say that the only thing you did that I would not have done is let the scum bag get with in 5 feet of you. That is too close for me.

    Other than that, I'd say you did well.

    What ever there business was it sounds like it was quick and they were in a hurry. The 5' thing...hey, they kinda popped up out of no where. The smack talk: I like your return warning. It says give me a little respect and don't under estimate me and returned the focus to move the car.
    I agree with another commenter that said nobody's giving you credit for the surprise, thinking on your feet, speaking clearly and the adrenaline rush ect... you know what else...They won't be back!
    Thanks for sharing, you can see what a great training exercise this was for the rest of us.
