    May not have been random... But drugs were not the reason (maybe)..

    A whole slew of stories on this here

    Now, aside from the rule of stupids... how do you defend against something like this...

    Let's say you and another couple are out for dinner... in town... and afterwards this guy with a gun and a machete slinks up to your car, just as you're about to drive off... tries (or succeeds in) to open your driver's door...

    As with anything, train and keep your SA up when out and about. I competent, confident and determined attacker if difficult to stop.

    Not parking in a dark alley on a Saturday night would be the first step in avoiding somthing like this.... just sayin'.

    I tried to start a discussion on access in another sticky post but no one seemed too interested there. There's a new company that was started by a SWAT guy, called TradecraftUSA. I just bought one of their holsters for this reason. There's a video on presenting from a vehicle on their website. Tried to figure out how to post that here but, I don't know how. Anyhow very flexible, very fast but it doesn't look like a normal holster. Do with it what you will, I'm pretty much done trying to get anyone to discuss this with me. Hope it helps.

    and the video showing car carry:

    Last paragraph to follow. What is wrong with theses people?

    "Last month, authorities said they were trying to determine whether a contaminated batch of PCP was going around town after a child was decapitated and two other children's throats were slashed by people believed to be on the illegal drug. A man charged in the attack admitted to police that he had smoked "wet," a combination of PCP and marijuana."

    Looks interesting. About $25 delivered, comes in both right and left hand. Easily adapted to a wide variety of firearms. I'd consider getting one for left and one for right, and several caliber anchors.
