    I half expected that story to end with the two guys being held at the muzzle of a Walther PPK . . . I kinda like the shotgun version better, anyway, this taking place out in the country an' all . . .

    Great job! I'm proud of you!

    It was well said earlier: I am glad I came upon this thread now so I didn't have to wait through the nail-biter intermissions! Thanks for the excellent writing and recounting of the experience.

    Just found this thread today...
    What a well-written story! It was great to read through the whole thing.
    Thanks for sharing...actually, you could have made it one loooong thread, but it would have kept me reading...

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    I see your point and agree, though I didn't own a PPK at that time.

    After checking my house with the shotgun, I put it back in my pickup, but didn't store it in the case behind the seat as usual. I just put it muzzle down, on the passenger side floorboard and seat to save time, plus having it ready for the very slight chance that I might need it quickly. As it turned out, having it ready like that was a significant factor in the unanticipated encounter with those two guys.

    I think that the fact that it was more menacing-looking than a .380 pistol helped me dominate the situation plus motivated those guys to be compliant, which prevented the situation from escalating. I really like my new PPK, but that short-barreled 12 gauge quickly got their full attention.

    Yes, sir, we know that. That's why he's no longer with us.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
