When I was growing up in WV, my best friend's Dad serviced Gas Wells. I went with them in his real army surplus jeep several times, dropped the tubes in the wells and stuff shot out the top of the well. I'm still not sure what that was! The only trouble I ever heard from him had to do with bears, and winter driving, not people. That was in the days before crack cocaine and meth. You had good presence of mind, both to identify the situation and to take the actions you took.
I'd consider two -- a M4 version of an AR and a legally short pump 12ga.
OTOH -- You did good and what you should have, even if you had long guns, IMHO. Albeit, you being from Texas, you did have other options, which I don't have under Virginia law.
No one wins in a gun fight -- some just loss more than others.
BTW -- do you have a company radio in the truck?

I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

I have a very nice M4, but the problem is I'm not even supposed to carry in a company vehicle and an M4 may stand out just a little. Yes, I know all of the different feelings on that subject, but here is mine. I can find another job if it comes to me blowing my cover, by having to use my weapon; the way I see it, I was going to be on the local news anyway if it gets to that point.
The company gun policy was briefed with a wink and a nod at the field level, so we all pretty much practice the old concealed means concealed principal. If they were to do a shake down on us field hands, I'm sure they be able to fill a feed sack with the weapons they'd find.
Well done John!
Hope they catch the slimy little van driving worm.

Sounds like you did good. This is exactly why I never head out into the woods or sticks unarmed. It can happen anytime... anyplace. Not just your stereotypical inner city robbery.
Good job. Glad everything turned out okay.
I know how you feel I used to work as a cell site tech and I can tell you, they don't put 300 - 500ft towers in nice places. I had my fair share of close calls with shady characters. I had to pull my gun more then once.
Good response and thought process.

Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.
