So, I work at a hospital that is surrounded by some fairly shady neighborhoods. After working there about a month I bought my first pistol(Glock 19) and started keeping it at my bedside and in my car to and from work. Fast forward about 6 months and I'm at a red light heading home around midnight. An urban male in his late teens/early 20s on one a bike flashed by my driver's side window and turns in front of my car and keeps going like he's circling me. Grab my Glock and start checking my mirrors and he flashed by my window again. I punched the gas through the red light, almost hit him, and got the frick out of there. I couldn't tell if he was carrying or not but it scared the shite out of me.

I honestly do not know. I purchased my XDs out of anger. I wanted a .357 sig M&Pc but could not find one. I saw that they had the XDs and said frick it. I know at the time they were cheaper than Jims (I checked Jims prices after the purchase) but I dont know how they are on everything else or now that all this shite has happened. But its owned locally and the service is top notch. They deserve a few more bucks.

I don't have a story of drawing a gun, quite the opposite. I was shot at(about 5 rounds) leaving the Varsity one night when I was at LSU. For the older crowd, I had parked in the "Murphy's" parking lot, and was walking in the street where Chipotle is to my truck @2am. I hear a commotion and look to the left and some grungy, gothic looking dude has a semi-auto pistol drawn down on me and my friend. It was so surreal we both just kind of stood there like--"huh, look at that dude with a gun". Well, when the first shot went off we snapped to it and and I ran 4.3-40 speed to the nearest car in the parking lot, jumped over the hood and took cover on the other side. Luckily we were about 75 yards or more away when the first shot went off, and QUICKLY covered another 50-100 as he was rattling off rounds. Never saw the guy before, never saw him again. We didn't call the cops---just got the F out of there.

The thing I want in an altercation is space, however that is achieved that is all I care about.


That's why I followed up with the second part of my post saying I don't know what I would've done and I can't pretend that I would've known. I just know it's smarter to have the gun chambered 24/7, that's all.

And Sammich, you could've gotten an M&P40c and bought the 357 sig barrel. But, I feel like I've already suggested this to you before and you said you wanted it to have matching marks on the slide...

Never been fired at but Ive had two guns put to my forehead on two different occasions and its not a fun feeling. Once a shotgun and once a semi auto piston (no idea what kind). I hope and pray Im never in that situation again, but not likely since Im not as stupid as I was in college. The shotgun was a gun stopping a fight where the other guy was losing and I really never thought he was gonna shoot since I quit when he said quit, but still scary. The pistol though, I really thought I was dead.

spring of '09 was my last semester at LSU and I was living in the garden district on Tulip Street, our house was on the corner and so my bedroom faced the side street. I always slepped with my twelve gauge pump under my bed and had a couple of boxes three and a half inche buck shot at the ready in addition to the two in the magazine. Anyways, my bed was right next to the window and I was woken at about 3 am with a middle aged drunk black man banging on my window saying "it's you neighbor let me in" (i had fallen asleep with the TV on and assume that's why he knoced on my window). his face was not but 18 inches from me and i could see him clearly through the half open blinds.I nearly crapped my pants and I have never moved so quickly in my life. i rolled out of bed picked up my shotgun and jumped all the way across my room in a matter of half a second racked one in the chamber and proceeded to run around my house like a mad man making sure all the doors were locked in just my boxers and benelli nova pump. the guy proceeded to move to my front door and was banging on it asking to let me him in. i had my phone was standing at my front door with one hand on the trigger and the other about to dial 9-1-1 (still dont know why i didn't) shaking violently i told him to go away i had a gun and that i was calling the cops. he ends up going away but my curiosity go the best of me so after 10 or 15 minutes i proceeded to patrol the neighborhood looking for him. i found him stumbling in the streets and he tried to flag me down. at this point i decided best to just go home and slept on the couch in an interior room near no windows with the shotgun curled up next to me. the first thing i did the next morning was move my bed away from the window. glad nothign more became of it and i didn't try to come through the window.

That is scary as shit!

I used to sleep with 2 windows literally right next to my bed since it was pressed up against a wall. I always feared of something like that happening.

Fresh out of LSU, I went to work in Mansfield, La with a large paper company. My wife and I lived on a state highway about 5 miles out of town. We lived in a house built in 1900 that had no A/C at all so we slept with the windows open. The house had a front porch across the front and our bedroom was on one side of the foyer with the LR on the other side of the foyer; front door in the foyer. If someone walked up on the front porch, I pretty much heard them. Several times people came up to the house at night but I never let anyone in. The scariest time was when two young thugs came up and wanted to use the phone. They kept insisting they needed the phone. I kept a loaded 12 gauge pump under the bed. I told them out the window that they needed to leave. They kept on about using the phone, so I told them to wait one. I walked to the door which had a glass portion in it. I turned the porch light on and let them see the gun at port arms. They left in much haste. Didn't sleep much the rest of the night.

looking back on it, it's a funny story to tell especially the idea of me running around in nothing but my boxers like a maniac but at the time i literally feared for my life.

You did right, man. You always think you are going to bust a cap at someone like it's cool to do. But no one in his right mind wants to do that for the wrong reason. I will shoot if I feel threaten. Don't want to but damn sure will.

Not me personally, but my brother, about 18, awoke to a guy with our dad's shotgun pushed in his cheek. The guy told him if he moved an inch he'd blow his head off. He finally ran out with 3-4 of our rifles, so my brother ran outside with his pistol only to see a po-po car speeding away. (shocker, but they never found the perp)

Very strange story, but this was Shreveport(Cedar Grove, 1988) when the place a mad house. So it was a dangerous time and place. We moved soon thereafter.

All I have is a false alarm. I was renting a house recently after Isaac near Pascagoula. The drive was flooded so I parked on a nearby hill. The local handyman my landlord uses assumed I was gone as my truck was gone. At 6 am he stopped by to check up on the house (2 days after the storm). We both realized we weren't alone about the same time. His eyes were as big as golf balls when I climbed out of the bed in my boxers with my pistol. Thank God for Cintas uniforms or who knows what would have happened.

I had one pulled on me recently when I was unarmed walking around my condo grounds.

There is a gate to the restaurant/bar next door and a retired military psyco sumbich living in a unit near the gate. A discussion with him about who put a pad-lock on the gate turned ugly. It was his lock, he did not ask the board if he could lock it. (I'm on the board and would have said no.) He refused to give a key to us or the other owners and threatened to call POPO for destruction of property if we cut the lock. As the discussion devolved he grabbed a shotgun off his porch, racked a round in and said he would kill us if we did not move out; he ain't allowing young people to take over. (I'm not young but an immature 47 with grown children.) I took "cover" behind a pole while he aimed at my friend. I snapped a iphone photo and called the police.

NOPD took two hours to arrive. They would not call it assault with a weapon in the police report. Apparently pulling a gun and threatening two neighbors is just "disturbing the peace". They did take his shotgun.

The moral of this story; Don't buy a condo.

Guy threatened to shoot me, reached into his truck for something and when he looked back he saw Team 1911 pointing at him.
Had to eat my breakfast at Toddle House with that thing stuffed in my disco pants for fear he'd come back.
