quote="DarkSide"]Well you can carry pepper spray and open the door. Also I'm sure if you pull your weapon out and anther person see you with it; they are going to make you the suspect all of a sudden. you may have a gun trained on you. My Daddy told me don't pull a gun unless your going to use it. My weapon is a last resort insurance problem not a deterrent device boys . Sorry for my spelling. how ever I did not know you could pull your weapon and not get in trouble.[/quote
I have been in enough street brawls to know two things one being if he is getting out of his car stop him by smashing the door on his leg. You have more force being outside then he does and two a big can of pepper spray works wonders and will give him something to think about for miles and miles.
I always try the pepper spray first (standing up wind) and if you can't fight off the attack then the gun. At least this way you tried a less then lethal way to resolve it first; it looks better to everyone. Sometimes that is not always an option but sounds like you had a little time to react
Some parents say it is toy guns that make boys warlike. But give a boy a rubber duck and he will seize its neck like the butt of a pistol and shout "Bang!"......George Will
