Responsible gun owner here...
IF... that's IF
I were the BMW driver... I would not have egged on the idiots, taunting them etc.
However, had I been chased down a dirt road and been cornered I would have spun the car sideways, jumped out, using the car as a barrier, leveled the gun at the rednecks and told them to turn around and leave now.
Last Saturday I passed a line of cars on a two-lane curvy mountain road. One of the drivers appeared to take exception. Before my wife could pass the guy pulled out and tried riding on my tail. I left him in the dust but he was really trying to keep up. Via radio I told my wife to just stay back and not try to pass for fear that he'd try to run her off the road.
I got a little distance on the guy (by now I'm maintaining 90 mph and he's doing around 80). Using the K12's excellent braking power, I found a wide spot, pulled over and began pulling my Glock out of the tankbag. Mr. badass was unable to stop so he decided to keep going.
We sat on the side of the road for a few minutes letting the adrenaline drain off and then proceeded with caution in case the guy had some more games in mind.
I think he'd have been pretty darned surprised when my wife pulled up with another gun pointed at him.
We are both former LEO's and are licensed concealed gun-toters. We take classes at least once a year at a local school
and practice regularly.
Because of our education and intelligence, we avoid situations at all costs for fear of having to resort to pulling a gun on somebody but... if I feel like a momma bear protecting her cubs, somebody is going to be looking at the wrong end of a gun.
