I would of paid money to see the porsche guys face when the kid stepped out and said may I help you,I bet he had to go wash his drawers out

The one thing to pay attention is the gun was in the glove box. This shows that you don't always have to have it on you and be a quick draw for a gun to be of use, just having it available can help sometimes.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
What a nut! I would imagine people are all the time trying to find businesses in Hilton Head (I know I was). They have most of them obscured by trees and it is a vacation spot (so there will be a lot of people that are not familiar with the area). It is really pretty not having businesses "in your face" so to speak but also hard to find places. You would think that the locals would know this, assuming the freak was local, I can't imagine getting that riled up on vacation.
Not to jack the thread but if you carry a baseball bat in your vehicle in Texas you should also have a glove, balls and other equipment or you could possibly be charged with an illegal club.
I'm thinkin a couple bullet holes in the Porsche would have been a fun side note.
I had an incident in very heavy slow traffic and my car died. Sat there for probably 10 minutes, flashers going, the works. People going around me then I look up, here is a Porsche Cayenne sitting 2 inches behind me, honking his horn. Proof that you can have money and own a $60,000 dollar car and still be dumb as a box of rocks.

As a fellow El Cid alumni, I'm glad the situation worked out well for the student. I sure would have given anything to see that Porche owner's face when he saw the business end of the Glock!
No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
The kid probably could have shot the idiot and claimed self defense and not have been charged! I hope I never have to make that decision. I might shoot first and ask questions later!!
