    Say someone comes up to you like a damn ninja and puts a gun to your face and says give me your money. What would you do?

    I've got people on another forum saying concealed carry is pointless because if you were put in that situation your gun wouldn't save you.

    I'm not Chuck Norris, so I think in this situation I'd cooperate versus risking getting shot since it's pretty damn obvious they have a gun and a lot better shot on me than I do on them, what with my gun in my waistband and all.

    What about you guys? And for the love of God, please keep this civil, it sure wasn't on the other forum. :rofl:

    well, i guess the best rule is to not let anyone get that close. but if someone does manage to ninja their way into that position, i would comply- better to lose my wallet than my life

    I'd give the guy my wallet, shoot him in the back, roll him over, and shoot him in the front.

    At that point you should probably just comply. In any event, you need to be totally aware of your surroundings at all times, so that you notice a suspicious person before they already have a gun to your head. Granted, most of us (all??) get distracted from time to time and let our guards down when we shouldn't.

    So their arguement is that if you can't prepare perfectly for every possible situation, you shouldn't prepare for anything at all?

    I've been robbed with a gun while I was carrying a gun.
    I gave up the money and we went our separate ways.

    Throw the money on the ground and then shoot the guy while he was picking it up.

    I would not put myself in that situation by any means possible.

    But if I was in that situation unexpectedly, I'd fork over the cash. Then come to the internet and tell my story.

    edit: what other forum? :o

    That's like saying when you are biking you shouldn't wear a helmet because when a semi hits you, you won't survive anyways.

    Or don't wear seat belt because when your car plunges into a river that shit can kill you.

    I think the better question is... how do you carry your gun while biking? :x:

    I was trying to get TB to carry a gat when he rides.
    There's some sketchy motherfuckers in ATL.

    We were torn between a handgun on a handlebar mount or a lever action Cowboy Gun in a leather saddle holster

    Avoid places and situations that might result in this.

    If you can't and this did happen... comply.

    If the criminal gets everything he asked for and is still acting like he was going to harm myself or family... it is all situation depended. I am trained and I will be fighting to the death.

    stick my finger in the barrel... take the gun away... rape his ass with his own gun... make him do ass to mouth on the gun... then pull the trigger to release my load in his face.

    Having a gun in your face would constitute protecting your person, did you think of what would have happened if you didn't have any money what would he have done to you?

    I would have shot him in the back and said "when i pulled my gun he tried to run"

    Gun wasn't in my face. He knew I had money - I was making a cash drop from a bar.
    A good robbery is a business transaction.

    this is exactly what i was thinking.

    i would ask if he would like my car keys, too. then reach for it, draw and shoot.

    just say that, he had your wallet, and knew you were compliant
    he might've gotten a bunch of his friends to come rob your house

    seriously though... when i worked graveyard for a c-store, i was robbed at gunpoint... i did not look him in the eye, i let out camera's do that for me... when he yelled he wanted all the money in the drawer, i asked if he wanted a sack with that... he gave a puzzled look, and cocked his head for a bit because i caught him off guard... it was enough for him to lift his head, to get a full view of his face on tape.

    nonono! "it all happened so fast" and "he dodged this way, I dodged that way"

    Never say "he tried to run and I shot him."
