What Would You Do If You Had A Gun Pointed To Your Head?

    Happened to me like twice. The second time, the dude told me the only reason he wouldn't pop me was because I wouldn't beg, and cry like most usually do. He said if anyone flinched at him, he always popped them. His very words "popped". He beat my chest for me and said, "Guy, you're a man. Guy, you're a man!" If only he knew it had nothing to do with minerals. I was just numb. Ha!

      I've had a gun jammed into my ribcage and I was so stunned I went numb.  I just remember thinking, "He's not going to do anything."  I shudder when I think of what might have happened.

        Funny enough, it didnt happen where I live. It could have, though. But the dangerous people wouldn't shit in their own backyards.

    Well, I haven't had a gun pulled on me, but I had a knife pulled on me on several occasions while working in loss prevention.

    Since I had a jump on them, I tackled them.

    Does that answer your question? haha

    Actually, I'm more of a talker in general. (Have you ever heard of verbal judo?) I'd probably try to talk my way out of it.

        Although I haven't read the book called Verbal Judo, I was taught at my LP job how to verbally deescalate a tense situation. At least they tried to teach it to everyone...I just chose to actually use it.

        But again, when people had a knife out, depending on the situation I would usually nab them quickly. Of course, if I didn't have help coming or it was a 1 v 1, I'd always let them go.

    The first time it happened, I froze and did exactly what I was told.  The second time, I kept my wits about me, memorized his face and identifable traits and did what he asked.  When I was safe, I called the police and he was arrested, charged and jailed.  smile

    I had that happen to me once.  I punched him in the face and knocked the glasses right off his head and ran.  Of course he grabbed my long pony tail when trying to make my escape.

    Got a face plant into a picture on the wall.  Kicked him in the nuts and ran again.  Then he tripped me but I got a hold of the phone to call for help.  He grabbed my ankle then it became a full on fight!

    After a while I got very tired, and woozy because he grabbed my tag watch on my wrist and blood started oozing from it so I bit him until until a piece of his flesh was in my mouth.

    By that time I was so disgusted I nearly gave up hung on long enough for the police to come.

    Sad part was I was the once charged with assault.  It's a strange world we live in.

      It certainly is a strange world but you are one brave Lady.  Sometime ago in my region a man shot a burglar who came to his house and the man (not the burglar) got sent to prison for shooting the burglar. Talk about injustice.... That sucks.

        I read about that. TMG is right.  I think it happens more then people realize.

        -edit: when I asked why I was being charged, they said that it was improbable that a 5'2 110lb. girl would punch a 6ft 200lb black man with a gun in your face.

        I said What!! You want me to just sit there.  My dad taught me unarmed self defense for a reason.

          Good girl!  It sucks that they charged you, but I'm glad to hear you stood up for yourself.  If more people did that, we'd have less scumbags preying on people.

    I wished I was making this up, the only time I have ever faced crime that wasn't military conflict was in Orlando, FL around 1992.

    I bought me a cool looking dog chain made out of gold.  Anyway I was walking down the Orange Blossom Trail hitting all of the really respectable establishments.  Anyway, two ass clowns stepped out on the sidewalk and one pulled a gun and asked for my chain and my wallet.

    I went to my wallet and pulled my ridiculously huge knife (Crocodile Dundee was big then) and took a nice rake on his arm.  The other dude split instantly and like I kid you not 3 seconds later the cops rolled up tackled me and beat the bejesus out of me and arrested me. 

    They thought I had attacked the other guys and that I was the menacing threat (Apperantly wearing a really pimp necklace and holding a big ass knife over a bleeding man doesn't look good).  Anyway after a long night in Jail and statements and what not, they let me go and kept my big ass knife.  I have never forgiven the Orlando Police for this incident, and often plot my revenge.

    I've had a knife pulled on me a few times in the street and I just kept walking.

    I've had a chain wrapped around my neck while I was at a payphone, but I got free and the d1ckhead just laughed. That same guy is so fat now, years later- so I just laugh at him!

    If it was a gun, I'd say, "Go ahead. Make my day."

    Nowadays I'm the one who usually carries a knife(s) with me.

      My mother drives to work very early in the morning.  This morning she saw a dead body lying in the street.  The poor man had been carjacked and the perpetrator shot him for a car! My mom had stopped at the same gas station he was stopped at just two days prior to the incident.  I was held at gunpoint by a crazy ex-boyfriend.  You never know what situation life will put you in.

    To be honest I would do what most middle class 17 year olds would do...panic.

    I don't think anyone could honestly say that they would instinctively think to do anything other than pray that it's not loaded and think (if no act on the idea) to run.

    It'd be like:

    "Luke, I'm pointing a gun at you"

    "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

    I decided to take the bus instead of drive my car a few months ago. Well, that was the one and only time! LOL. This guy sat down next to me and kept 'displaying' his gun to me. At first, I wasn't sure but then by the 3rd time I grew afraid and stood up and walked to the other bus stop where others were. The bus stopped there 1st so I told him and the bus driver drove right past him. Flight or fight? I'm all about flight!!! ;o)
