Sitting in a barber chair with the sheet on me when a guy started ranting and raving about the cops being after him and he either had to give them a reason to find him or get some money to leave. I pulled my 38 out of my pocket and held it under the sheet. The barber, who apparantly knew him pretty well. talked him down.

I put the handgun away and the barber finished the cut. Damn glad that is all it was. Probably should find another barber, but like him, and just try to pick times that these knuckleheads are not there.

Like Cane, I try to be aware of where I am, and who is around. I also am old enough that I am rarely out late or in the areas that things have a higher probability of happening.

Another time a similar incident occurred was when I was sitting in a guard shack. I don't consider it "drawing" because it was my Mossberg. Both weapons I used to deescalate situations are in the same pic in my album. The movies are all true, once the scumbag is looking down the barrel of a nasty sounding lead dispenser he immediately becomes your best friend.

First, let me say that I'm 65 years old. I have had the misfortune to
be involved in two shootings. Both times I was fortunate (and quick)
enough to fire first. Both individuals survived, how I don't know. I
learned a lot about what a person does when shot. Not like TV at
all.

Default Didnt draw

But I have "displayed" in the holster with my hand on the grip in 2 seperate instances. That was enough to discourage the would be bad guys both times. Each incident involved multiple bad guys. One incident was 2 and the other 3, both times in parking lots. Criminals are like hyenas, they wait until they perceive their prey to be distracted or vulnerable. Thing is, I'm a pretty big guy, but I believe our society has been so twisted that a lot of criminals know that people are, in many cases, afraid to defend themselves for fear of the law coming down on them. I did have an incident in the service many years ago when I was forced to use a knife to defend myself against (again) multiple assailants. I was cornered and the only othet option was being robbed and suffering a severe beating or worse. I chose to defend myself..i will say this..no one died, bad guys scream like little girls when stabbed in the armpit, and the Gerber Guardian is a damn fine defensive tool.

Sound like the liability type to me. But, to each their own. I had a dog that absolutely hated black people and Jehovah's Witnesses. Both groups just learned to stay the hell away.
