Scary for sure! Glad everyone is OK! My wife and I have been discussing getting her a pistol when funds allow. I don't like leaving for work and leaving her empty handed! She's on the small side (5' 1"), so not very intimidating. The shotgun scares her, so we're thinking another XD9 = compatible ammo, and no second guessing operation in a stressful situation.

Definitely scary. I've gon outside once to find my truck broken into. I didn't have anything in there to steal, so I just ended up with a broken window and my paperwork from my glove box scattered around.

Since you all have indentified a need for her to be escorted to the car in the first place it seems like it might be time to look at a new lease somewhere else if you are not purchasing a home.

Also, knowing that the area is dangerous it seems like a good time to consider doing a quick inventory of the car before going inside and locking it up for the night. I'd try to leave it as empty as possible. I definitely wouldn't leave a wallet in there or anything else that a druggie would think that they could pawn easily.

Glad no one was hurt.

the part that worries me is they saw your wife and were still getting out of the car! that part would scare the hell out me, if it had happened to me and my wife. only after seeing you they took off! that in itself is very scary.
Yes it was.

Or they were additional opportunists? I certainly would be looking in to personal CCW personal protection & defense classes. And get your wife one of the new Tasers if not a Pistol of her own. Another thing comes to mind regarding past experiences. When confronting either intentionally or by accident anyone in this fashion, know your surroundings and have a pre-mental plan. This means mentally "What If" training in your mind and practicing for an occasion before it would actually happen. Which would include the location of cover in your yard, safe observation areas and the like. We had a man in Indy who approached two individuals breaking into his car and they shot an killed him one morning. So use extreme caution and always be prepared "In Advance!" Mentally train and plan ahead so you will respond effectively if an event like this should ever occur again. We pray not! Being in the open with no cover is a bad place to be should they have a weapon.

I had a low car in between myself and the guys. I already planned on using it as cover

Yes. For sure. We have plans to get away from the apartments as soon as $ allow us to.
