Really though; let's say the county sheriff or state police guys are anti ccw. What's the worst case on me from them?

i dunno, i think where you live could make a huge difference.

i am fairly certain in texas, a display of your weapon is considered use of force, but not use of "deadly" force. in my interpretation of the law here, you were threatened with force, and you responded with force to dissuade the threat. i couldn't see any charge that is reasonable being brought against you. but a lawyer i AIN'T!!!!!!

i mean, who knows? charges like "disorderly conduct" and "disturbing the peace" exist so you can be charged with something when you haven't really broken a specific law....

legal counsel may be the wisest course here imo.

Yes, give them all descriptions. (As long as you're good for CC)

It is instructive how the thug used Spanish on purpose as means of intimidation.

Most of all, congrats. The gun just paid for itself. I remember your thread. You saw it coming, top notch SA.

if you're legal to carry, i can't see where that would make any difference in reporting an averted possible criminal act.

they were going the opposite direction, turned around and followed you, then one of them approached you, yelling at you in a foreign language and carrying a piece of pipe?

IMO, i think you acted in a reasonable and prudent manner myself and showed great restraint and good judgement, since you didn't shoot the guy. which IMO, i think you might have been justified in doing.

If it happened the way you said it did, you were justified in drawing your weapon. You should report it.

Yes I agree, but ESP. If you have a good relationship with the CLEO, I would. I have developed a good relationship with my CLEO and his officers( all 9 of em) as well as some of the county officers. Accident took place not long ago just outside our development on a state road. We "just happened" to be there.....

They'd have no cause to seize the firearm.

1. Refuse consent to seize

2. Sue the balls of the jurisdiction if their officers foolishly take it by force.

I agree with Axxe, report it so good cops can be on the lookout for these thugs... and have your attorney ready to deliver an attitude adjustment via lawsuit if you get happen to get a Badged Barney.
