    Surviving an Armed Robbery

    I found this item on a google search on how to survive an armed robbery. The premise of this site is that you are "unarmed" at the time of the armed robbery. We all at one time or another have not been able to carry our CCW weapons for various reasons.

    I tend to agree with the general theme of how to survive this difficult situation. Of the four robberies I experienced the first one was the worst. Here is why I say this.

    The first armed robbery I didn't know how to react at all. I suppose this applies to any given situation. Being the victim of an armed robbery for the first time is an extreme example. Here is how I dealt with the aftermath of my first armed robbery.

    The moment the BG was gone I called the local LEO's. My 2nd call was to the general manager of the hotel. The police arrived within 3-4 minutes. When they arrived & I gave one of the officers a clothing description as best as I could recall as well as their mode & direction of travel. The BG was wearing a stocking mask so all I had was a clothing decription, general size (height & weight), etc. Long story short, then never caught the BG.

    Now as to the "rest of the story" to borrow from the late Paul Harvey, for the next 2-3 weeks I relived the robbery every night as a bad nightmare. Most of those nights I woke up is a cold sweat. As time passed the bad nightmares became less frequent.

    With a bit of help from a friend who also was robbed earlier in his life we talked alot and he helped me thru the stress of being robbed. Talking with this good friend help me come to terms with that first robbery. Talking about this bad situation help me realize that the robbery could have gone much worse. At this time I was just thrilled to be alive.

    This first armed robbery made me realize that life is wonderful. We shouldn't let bad experiences make us see only bad. Find at least one good thing in your life EVERY day! I do.

    If you were up to it...it may be interesting to hear how it happened, what was said, what you did, etc.
    Did you begin to know something wasn't 'right' prior to the event?
    Did you ever feel as though the guy was going to shoot?
    What conversations took place?
