    This story reminds me that I've been meaning to pick up a couple of extra magazines for my guns lately. Maybe I'll get around to it sooner rather than later.

    I'm glad he did what he did.

    My guess is that by the second round everyone but the wounded are gone. Just the sound of crickets and a somewhat funny smell left by the mob. I carry for worst case scenario, but most shootings are over after a couple shots. Civilians in running gun battles is the ultra rare exception. Like cockroaches scattering when you turn on the light, they loose all bravado when the shots start coming their way.
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    I am happy to hear that Mr. McBride was able to react to a situation, that could have been a lot worse, and have a positive outcome. My question is, when are we going to put an end to the overall level of disrespect, and lawlessness that seems to be the accepted norm of the younger generation? Everyday I read more and more stories about situations like this happening. Our legal systems needs to address this issue, and it starts with WE THE PEOPLE!

    Amen. There is sometimes a fine line between the philosphy of 'avoidance' (as being a responsible CCW citizen), and being a victim. I'm dealing with my own gang situation right now, and while walking that line, have started pushing back. The local LEO's are entirely supportive, but just like us, they have to choose their battles. It only took my request for assistance to draw their support and attention.

    Good Luck with the resolution of your problem. Those types of problems, in addition to being dangerous can be a real PITA.

    Glad the creeps did not push it, as they would have just become a martyr in the hoods eyes. And cost the homeowner time and money in the court system. I would not mind being on that jury. But, just hope that in the future the punks don't come back when they have the jump on him. Cause, you just know how roaches can take over.

    The neighbor had it right... "These kids... They just wanna be thuds."
    (should be sung to the tune of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper)

    And, I am pretty sure he said thuds, not thugs... And, if they were en masse, throwing stones at me, a few of them might make that sound as they hit the ground. Especially if they caught me wearing my blue kilt???? wassup with that?
    All that said....
    It could be worse.
