Moving to the parking lot does not necessarily mean leaving. Out if sight is not "gone".
An armed felon moving away may be moving toward another victim, signalling for reinforcements, or going for the heavier weapons.
The threat may change, but it's still there until prey or predator is completely gone.
Moving to the exit may allow a better view of the situation, and better decisions from that point.
Chasing is generally a bad idea. Overwatch of their withdrawal, not so bad. Getting descriptions and license plates, good.
I would have to agree.

IMHO staying inside the Restaurant and not trying to observe what the BGs are up to can lead to fatal consequences.
Your eggs will be cold when you get back to your table and nobody likes cold eggs - certainly not the Oldgringo. Just shoot 'em on sight, what's the problem?

BTW, I normally carry my STI Trojan in 45 ACP and two extra mags (if I am wearing cargo shorts like I do most of the year, I sometimes carry two more magazines in my cargo pockets for a total of four extra mags). This time of year when I wear pants I also carry my LCP in an ankle holster with an extra mag. To be honest, I would be reluctant to do anything until I was convinced they were going to harm someone. I know it may be hard to tell since they can shoot someone in a split second, but I'm not taking the chance of hitting an innocent person unless I am forced to. I also realize I am not a police officer and I am not a superhero so I am not obliged to protect the world. There are just too many "what ifs" to sit here and say what I would have done. The first thing I would have done was to shield my family and draw my gun under the table. I guess it would be a stressful waiting game after that for a few seconds until I determined what to do. Maybe others think this is an easy decision, but for me it is a difficult call.

Right answer! Give the man a cigar, Bill.

:iagree: but I still don't want nobody messin' with my breakast/lunch/dinner unless they's payin'. Know what I mean?
