    Buy a box of everything you can find. Some will work and some will not. Those that work, keep shooting them. Those that don't work, put on a shelf for later. After 500 rounds of those that do work,...

    I would do the same thing I did last time I was in that situation, I went to the drug store to pick up my wife's medicine , I was about 6 people back in the pickup line when this grubby looking guy...

    Grab and go? Be a good witness. Start rounding people up or moving through the dining room? I access the situation and if it warrants a more proactive stance to ensure the security and...

    Drawing your weapon before needed is only going to cause problems . Someone sees you draw then they might think your part of it and gets you unneeded attention and you might have a dozen police draw...

    Discreetly draw my weapon, take cover/concealment as best I am able, dial 911 and fill the cops in on what is going on. Next move is up to the baddies. If they leave gently then I let them go. If...

    I would drop under a table and draw my weapon. Like someone said if all they do is take the cash, nobody gets hurt. If things turn violent in any way I already have a bead on the first one.

    It would depend on what they did next. If they just grab cash and run I would let them. They start shooting at people then game on.

    I would have already located all exits (regular and emergency) prior to sitting down. I would use that information and slip out if possible. Call the cops once safe.

    Yeppers! if it slides it gets grease, if it rotates it gets oil, if its part of the striker/firing pin system it gets a dri lubricant. the slides/rails definitely get a good quality grease.

    Because they were offended (no big surprise) at his alleged comment alleging all black people are on welfare and they mobbed him. His lawyer will probably use a disparity of force argument. The...

    People carrying firearms should be the last ones to start an argument. I think 53rd is right; both sides checked their brains at the door. But I expect more from an adult carrying a firearm than I...

    Sounds more like He was confronting them from the beginning. If the story is as the latter account portrays I'd say that the guy should have his carry license revoked immediately. He is a great...
