What would you Do it
you were to find yourself in the following situation? Please, no bravado Rambo
tactic type responses. Think seriously about what you think would be the best
course of action.
A friend once told me a story of a real event that happened to him. Think about how you would respond to a similar situation, after having read this story.
This is a Hold
My friend Joe exited a Walmart store at night, walked to his car, and opened the trunk. He was bent over leaning into his trunk when he felt something poke him in the back, and a male voice said, “this is a hold up”. Joe (not a concealed carry holder) turned around to see a young male employee from the Walmart who he has come to know from his regular visits, laughing. To him it was a joke.
I know to us concealed
carry holders it would not be a joke. But think that this could really happen
to you. You could shoot an innocent stock boy who thought it would be fun to
play a joke on a customer he felt he was becoming friends with.
Is there maybe a way to test the seriousness of the threat before taking lethal action?
