How far was the fall? ~12 feet to the ground? Was is on to dirt or concrete? Well, I'm no Steven Seagal but sure would have been looking for a bushy shrub to cushion my leap. Even if I broke an ankle, I think me & my G19 would have been right down there amongst it. I COULD NOT have stood by & I'd have shot every single one of those dogs if they were the LAST ONES known to exist in the WORLD. If leaping was out of the question, from the platform I'd have put my little red Crimson Trace dot between the shoulders of the top dog and worked my way down the pecking order.
