This may not be so in ALL states. Check your local laws.


Florida law justifies use of deadly force when you are:

Trying to protect yourself or another person from death or serious bodily harm;
Trying to prevent a forcible felony, such as rape, robbery, burglary or kidnapping.

What if I am in my vehicle?

A. A person has no duty to retreat in his lawfully occupied vehicle against a person who was in the process of unlawfully and forcefully entering or had unlawfully and forcefully entered an occupied vehicle or had unlawfully and forcefully removed or was attempting to remove another against that person's will from the occupied vehicle.

Most folks that get mugged are 3-5 seconds into the mugging before they realize it. Be aware of what is going on around you, keep doors locked. 357 Mag is about 450 ft lbs on energy- Toyota is about 10,000 ft lbs of energy. USe the car if you need to- you can push a larger vehicle out of your way, and most muggers. Drive thru the red light, over the sidewalk, leave paint from your car on whatever is in the way (you got insurance, right?) Yes, I carry- but first action would be to attempt to put distance between me and thee. I wear a cross draw holster- problem with hitting the steering wheel with barrel using right side carry. Can you draw while seated, with seat belt/ shoulder harness in the way?

I've heard the latest trick used by carjackers is to put a piece of paper in your back window & then hide nearby. When you get in your car, start it & then check your rearview they hope you'll jump out to clear away the paper & they have free access to a running car. Better to drive away & clear off the paper later.

My first post here. Pleased to meet y'all

that can work, the area i live in though, a 35% tint is all that is legal on the front windows, 20% on the rest. and cops are strict about that. my friend had 10% and they made him scrape it off on the side of the road.

another problem with tinting over 20% is it makes it real hard to see out of your car at night. id rather be able to see a carjacker coming, then have him not see me. its easier to plan for what you expect than play off a situation that takes you by surprise.
