    Yep. If I am wearing a jacket there is a 642 sans holster in the left pocket. I am perfectly fine with a 12 pound trigger all by itself in a coat pocket so I can fire it without messing with a holster.

When the would-be robber observed my hand was in my jacket pocket with good reason, he lost interest in us and moved on.
    I had a somewhat similar situation last year though it was daytime. I had just come from the County Clerk's office, registering a new pistol and had parked at our downtown office (not my normal office). I had stopped for some street meat and a can of pop. Anyhow, the lot is surrounded by a wrought iron fence and there was a bum near the entrance. As I came closer he clearly was "squaring up" to block my way. Me being a older, grey haired guy in a shirt and tie probably seemed like easy pickings. I was planning on offering the half can of pop if he hit me up for change but when I saw that action I switched the can to my off hand. I still didn't really expect anything to happen but the strangest thing did. As I came within maybe 10-12 feet he all of a sudden kind of 'shrunk down' and looked to the side a scooted past me and on down the street. I think he noticed the bulge in my pocket from my carry at the time, a Kimber Micro 9 and concluded that me freeing up my hand meant he should get the hell out of there. In hindsight
    , perhaps I should have had my hand on it, just in case he was going to pull a knife or some such thing. Lucky for me it ended well for all.

    Alternatively, you could just fire a couple of rounds into the air, like Joe.

    Cops like pizza too so either way you can't lose.

    Call the cops, telling them you'll have pizza delivered. See which gets there first.

    But that痴 what you carry for.

    The numbers are irrelevant to me, because as soon as I shoot the first one in the face, their game is no longer fun for them.
    THAT is the correct way to handle it...then it is time for them to put some skin in the game, too.

    This concept of the gangs ruling streets only works if the victims allow them to do that. Serious resistance by those being victimized will have an impact every time it is employed...

    What to do in case of a pack attack?

    Well, apparently, if you can hold out long enough there's pizza and donuts.

    Beer?

    Although beer and donuts doesn't really sound too good

    Multitask.

    Order online while speaking with the cops, find out what toppings they like.
    Ride hard, shoot straight, always speak the truth
