I’d like to suggest one walk away even if your antagonist wasn’t drunk.

Even if you don't have a gun try and walk away. You have nothing to gain by fighting a drunk.

Walk away. There is no shame in it. Even when your aren't carrying.

Once you let a bullet go there is no stopping it no do overs, its path of projectory is permanent the smartes thing in my opinion would be to walk away forget trying to be macho. With great power comes great responibility if I have the power to take a human life I would never want too unless my life is REALLY endangered
Your gun deserves much more respect than some intoxicated drunk. If someone is trying to fight with you, or if there is a drunk person in public, you should call the police.

Make sure the person gets home safely by all means necessary.

I have only had to stand my ground twice when alcohol was involved. I was sober both times. The first was when a "gentlman" broke a beer bottle over the back of my head, then tried to gut me with it. The second was when my cousin's husband came home drunk one night and mistook her for a punching bag. Both incidents were deemed self defense. All charges were dropped against me in both cases, but they still made it hard to get my pistol permit. I had to go in front of the sheriff and the county judge and have a long talk with them. In the end, I was deemed safe and given my permit.

Nowadays, I don't drink in bars, and limit myself to no more than 2 drinks at parties. When at said parties, I have a DD, and I do NOT carry. If someone starts trouble, I walk away and remind myself that the drunken D-bag is not worth the jail time and the loss of my rights. Don't get me wrong, I will fight if I have to defend myself and my loved ones, but I feel it is better to walk away. To hell with what others think, I don't have to fight to prove that I am a man,

With great power comes great responsibility. The responsibility we have when we are CCers is far more that that of the average man or woman on the street. Bear that in mind when a situation arises.

Axxe and C3 are right on the mark here.

No need to prove anything at all, if your life is in danger by all means win the fight. If your life is not in danger then walk away, let the BS roll off of your shoulders and live life knowing that you are the better person for it.

If it still bothers you draw a pic and tape it to a target and shoot the ears off of it, Group therapy can cure many ills.

I would hope the answer to the OP's question would be more than obvious to the people on this site.

That appears to be so.

Walk away. walking away does not always mean a fight will not happen. but at least you tried. i can count the number of fights ive been in on one hand.. all of which i walked away from at the start... and all of which i won.. i WILL NOT instigate any fight.. but bet your ass i'll fnish it. as those poor guys learned.
