Walk away, why bother to argue and rumble with a drunk? The gun is a tool of last resort nothing else. A great singer once warned that "hand guns are made for killin', They ain't no good for nothin' else, And if you like to drink your whiskey, You might even shoot yourself". (I didnt totally agree with the next line that says to dump them all to the bottom of the sea). He and his band parrished in a plane crash, not a shootout!

Life isnt a Western, fighting is something thats vestigial unless your lifes in danger then watch out!

Let him be the fool in the eyes of the other people, not you.


Another consideration. I would rather be referred to as the wuss, than as the defendant.

I'll take a wimp walk anytime.
I will defend my life and family, if necessary, but if a wimp walk works, then it preferable to getting involved with loosing my gun to the law while the merits of my choice are examined.
I have pre-established my decision levels for fight or flight.
By the responses from others, it appears that gun-owners that enjoy aspects such as forums are similarly self regulated.

1. Why are you at a birthday party with drunks?
2. Why does it matter what some random person thinks of you?
3. So a drunk tries to start a fight anddddd does he pull a weapon? Does he do anything that makes you think your life or the life of others are in immedate danger?

Me i don't hang out with drunks. I don't go to places with drunks. If people are drinking that's cool first drunk I see I split. I don't care if someone thinks I am a *****, wimp, sissy, or yellow for walking away. I know that I am smarter and better than that drunkin fool.

Or just do a quick throat punch and be done with him as he lays on the floor wheezing.

If you must carry, don't attend those types of parties. If you must attend those types of parties, don't carry.

About the time I hit my mid 20s, places that attracted arrogant, drunken, aggressive douchebags pretty much lost their appeal. Rank in the USAF was too hard to come by to have it go away in some useless alcohol soaked altercation. NCOs are supposed to know better. People carrying should as well.

unless you are fond of jail time, walk away.

a fight is a willinging engagment between two individuals on an equal basis. example "you wanna fight? me too, lets go outside..." if you engage is a fight, it should be understood that this is a willing fist fight between two individual & no weapons are involved. even cowboys would set aside guns for fights.

you simply cannot be a willing participant in a fight, and then change the game by drawing a gun!! this is murder imo.

to me, it boils down to one main difference. concealed weapons permits are for defending oneself from AN ASSAULT.....not a willing fight.

if you don't want to walk away from fights, don't carry a gun & let your fists do the talking. if you want to fight, use your fists and accept the results. if you don't want to fight, carry a gun and avoid fights.

if you just FEEL THE NEED to do SOMETHING then call 911 and complain about a belligerent drunk. let the jerk find someone new to play with. being drunk and a public nuisance is against the law in most municipalities ive ever heard of. then sit back and watch the show.

i also just dont frequent places im likely to encounter drunken jerkoffs. ive generally got better things to do with my time and money than hang out at over priced bars full of degenerate drunkards

It is your job as a responsible CCW holder to walk away from a situation like that.

A gun is for life threatening situations only.

Walk away if at all possible...but what if the fight is unavoidable, non life threatening, and there you are with a gun under your shirt...fight back and take the chance of it being exposed or even falling out in the scuffle or take a whoopin and protect your firearm?

If I am carrying a concealed weapon at a friend's birthday party where there are drunks and alcohol then I am at the right place, but at the wrong time.
