SITUATION SUNDAY: Your Car Has No Place To Go

Welcome welcome! Today is the first article in a new weekly series called Situation Sunday. With this series, we will be throwing out a hypothetical situation that someone could encounter during their daily activities and more importantly, how to handle that situation with a firearm.

Here’s how it works:

1. Read the situation below.

2. With the provided information, comment below in the DISQUS comments section (you can login with Facebook if you don’t have an account) and tell us what you would do if faced with the same circumstances.

3. Feel free to add things to the situation that we don’t mention. Eg; after you draw your firearm on an attacker (if needed), they still continue forward towards you. Now, you’ve got to create a storyboard all of your own. What happens next?

4. Don’t be afraid to take the situation all the way through.

6-28-2015 SITUATION: Your Car Has No Place To Go

You’re out driving by yourself in your car, your firearm is in the location that you usually keep it while driving, and you come up to a red light. There is a car in front of you stopped at the light, and you keep a safe distance between your vehicle and theirs.

In your rear-view mirror, you see a person walking up behind you, toward your car. It’s a man, late 20’s, and has something long in his hand that you can’t make out. Then as you gaze into your right side mirror, you see another man approach. With this man, you clearly see him with a long knife in his hand. They are both about 50-60 feet away and approaching quickly.

As these men are approaching, the car in front of you backs up so that you are now unable to drive forward and around them.

What do you do?
