    Thankful for you and your son that you were prepared.

    Glad things didn't go differently. Road rage is a very real threat that can affect anyone. It is easy to forget that driving in traffic is a social interaction where you deal with hundreds, and even thousands of different people. We all hope that everyone is just trying to get where they are going, but you just don't know what another persons state of mind is. Unlike when you decide not to go to certain neighborhoods, or areas of the city because they are unsafe, The highway isn't an environment you can "control". Everyone drives on the highway- from regular citizens to murderous criminals.

    When someone uses a multiple ton vehicle to threaten harm to others, and it comes to a confrontation I don't find it unreasonable at all to introduce a firearm into the equation as a means of protection.

    my best to you,

    P

    Thanks, everyone for you positive feedback. I am traveling, so I don't have much time on the internet. Thank you all for watching the video.

    Have a safe rest of year if I don't get back to the group,

    Good video. Glad it turned out with no one hurt. Hopefully, that jerk learned his lesson, but I kind of doubt it.

    Like the way u did the vid :). Thx for
    Sharing.

    Also wanted to add that i was told in a situation like urs, after the altercation ends like urs did, that you should call the police and let them know what happened before the other person calls them and says you threaten them with the gun first. Any input?

    Agree completely.

    I've had a few close calls, but so far I've been able to either defuse or avoid the situation before drawing my gun became necessary.

    The worst of those situations left me unarmed because of GA's good old "public gathering" law and my concern about leaving a gun in a vehicle at the venue.

    So you can't carry your sidearm if you are at a public gathering in GA?

    Didn't you know? Criminals hate public gatherings and crazed gunmen never go to a crowded place and start shooting. :rolleyes:

    Great story. I hadn't owned a gun till just a few months ago. Now I take one with me everywhere I go. Obviously, this world isn't getting any better! Better to be prepared.
