i was backing out of my spot in the parking lot, after looking to see that it was clear. i hear tires screeching and look back to see a guy in a minivan skidding to a sop behind me. i think he ws going ~25 mph. he honks at me, and drives away... or so i think. he stops about 10 yards away, and i have pulled out, thinking we are going to forget it and drive away. he gets out of the car and screams at me, yelling about how he is a convict and he will fuckin kick my ass. i flip him off and then ignore him. a few moments later he gets out of his car and is running toward mine. he looks furious. i grabbed my ASP (well, the knockoff one Jago sells) and jump out of the car. when i extend it he is about 5 feet away from me. he stops dead in his tracks, pauses to look at it, and tries to play it off "ive been hit with worse, im a fuckin convict" followed by "you know what man, your not worth going back to prison" turns around and gets back in his car, drives off. after running the event through my mind a few hundred times, i feel that i would have definitly been attacked if i hadnt pulled out the ASP. i think the sound of it got his attention. im very glad i didnt have to use it, but im also VERY glad i had it with me.
