Lessons Learned At A Convenience Store : Personal Liberty?
An interesting read.
'Cept if you start shooting and the rest of the criminals don't all of a sudden decide to try for a softer target you will be in deep doo doo. It won't be like a karate movie where only one attacks you at a time. More bullets may not always be enough. But then usually more can't hurt.
One of the comments suggested that after shooting one or two of the muggers an inquiry as to "who is next" might be a solution
as one commenter pointed out, there were any number of mistakes the writer made, both before and after the first encounter.
the best "solution" IMO would have been to decamp at that point and look for another gas station, not to continue on as if everything was normal, much less leave your wife out there alone while you used the bathroom. he was lucky she was still there when he came out.
sorry, but this guy did a lot of things wrong beyond not having enough ammo.
There was no issue here.
Speaking as an instructor, this "story" would make a great teaching aid.
I'm glad the author is retired.
I'm curious why there was no mention of what these 10 gang members did? There was no end to the story. No resolution. Or are we to assume the guy and his wife are still in the bathroom hall of the convenience store? What Illegal activity took place in the story? I didn't read anything about any one being robbed or pushed around. Only that the guy and his wife were afraid of the "gang members"
Not saying it wouldn't be a scarry situation I just would have thought finishing the story would have had a benefit.
I'll give ten to one that it's because nothing happened.
What are you an instructor of? Sepuku?
Gas stations are a great place to ambush someone.
