    You have a right to be proud of your student's successful action....congrats to you for imparting the knowledge and to your student for taking that knowledge to a successful conclusion.

    Certainly you should feel proud but also think of how many people you have helped, or will help in the future, that you won't hear from. Your impact goes to infinity!

    always nice not having to shoot someone, maybe those guys will think twice before robbing the next person!

    Good report man. I tell ya you never need a gun until you need one. Stuff like this is good to hear. The fact is that we live in a fallen society and Jesus Christ gives us common since, but for the life of me some Christians feel that they should not carry weapons. Now this is not to start a big religious thing because I respect all people, but just realize that the bad guys are lurking looking for whom they will devour, so arm yourself. Good report love to year stuff like that.

    Hmmm... I can't help but point out the differences between this thread and the "How do you know what to do" thread in Tactics.

    Over there, everybody is sweating pulling a weapon on somebody closing in on them after two direction changes and a verbal warning. Here everybody is congratulating someone who pulled a weapon on three guys he "thought" were going to rob him... no mention of why he thought that, no mention of seeing a weapon.

    Why the difference?

    It sounded like he pulled the gun in response to an attempted robbery. If everyone pulled a gun when someone walked in their direction, the antis would win fast. I'm going to guess that because he was trained, he knew what was happening and reacted with what the training taught him.
    It is possible that the 3 guys were just going to go past him into the jack in the box. Another problem could be they asked if he had any change and he took it the wrong way. Hope not but possible.
