I donít believe you know me well enough to judge me like this; I am the last person in the world that is looking for a confrontation. I have never, ever challenged some one after being cut off or run off the road. But if you run up to my car wanting a fight, you will find you have bitten off more then you can chew.

I know itís a bad habit, and the Glock is the safest weapon to care chambered, but it only takes a few thousands of a second to chamber a round

There is just something special about watching a teenage kid go from thinking he is a bad *** to pissing his pants, when he is looking down the barrel.
I make it a habit not to get myself into confrontations like this. His was likely completely unprovoked but still, ya know?

Maybe the kid had a severe case of RoidRage (like, Steroids...) and Littlemans syndrome, but I'd say 99% of people would back down at the *SIGHT* of MrGlock without a need to even chamber one.

Then again I've been known on more than one occasion to get out of my vehicle in traffic to confront someone whos ******* with me or really pissed me off.....

even if you're crazy enough to get out and confront the guy and/or pull a gun you have no idea how crazy he is. Maybe a gun won't scare him, maybe his friend has a gun. You don't know. Why risk it. Maybe you'll escalate the situation and actually have to fight/shoot/possibly kill someone and then be in a whole heap of ****. I would hope pulling a gun on someone is an absolute last resort, not a machismo device to humble others who confront you...I would have done the same Sav, just avoid the whole mess and have a funny post for the forum.

Why, because if you get into a confrontation or challenged to a fight you just immediately pull a gun out?
