My girlfriend and I were sitting in the back of her truck in front of her home last week around 10 pm when we had a kid pull a pistol on us and pull the trigger. A white car drove by us, then made a u-turn and turned off it's lights while it crept towards the front of us. My instant reaction was to reach for my 45 GAP I had strapped inside my shirt which is what I did but I did not draw my weapon. I was thinking, "who does that anymore, turn their lights off?" I had a feeling that this was some joke being played by some kids and it turned out it was but these kids had a gun pointed at me. It was dark and before I realized it was actually a gun he pulled the trigger but it was empty, they just drove off laughing. I didn't get a plate but the make and model which I did pass along to the police, they told me I was the third person that night who called about these kids. Afterwards I was just so upset with myself, I went over what happened over and over in my head. It wasn't fear that stopped me from drawing my weapon but I can't figure out why I froze like that. I was in my right to draw and fire, there was a gun pointed at my face. I was thinking that if I did shoot some kid was going to loose his life because he and his friends thought it would be funny to try and scare random people. Someone was going to loose their son or brother because of stupidity. And you know I wouldn't have regretted doing it for one second, only for the loss of life but not for defending my self and someone else. I just want to hear what you guys think about this. Have you ever been in a situation like this and froze the way I did? What kind of advice would you offer and what else did I do wrong? I know I wont allow someone to get a chance to get a shot off again.
