In the Parking Lot, at Home, and at Work- More Self-Defense Gun Stories

Louisiana –-( Here is some news you won’t find in the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend themselves and the people they love.

Self-defense instructor David Cole joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they trained and prepared?  What can we learn from their experience? Listen and find out. (21-minute audio)

These victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun..and a plan.

First story-  Are you armed as you drive and go shopping?

You’re waiting in the car as your wife finishes her grocery shopping. You’re 58 years old. It is nine o’clock at night when two strangers walk by the car. The 21-year-old man waves to you and says he hasn’t seen you in a while. The strange man jumps in the front seat and the 19-year-old woman jumps in the back seat. That is when the man says “I’ve got a gun. I’ll blow your head off. The next words out of your mouth I’m going to send you to heaven.”

You are a concealed carry holder. You have your gun with you. You draw your firearm and point it at your attacker. Both of your attackers run from your car. You don’t fire as they run into the store. You call the police. They arrest the pair after fighting with them. Both of your attackers are charged with aggravated robbery and resisting arrest.

Second Story-  Are you armed at when you go to sell your motorcycle?

It is almost Christmas. Some of us need cash to buy presents. You decided to sell your motorcycle. You found a buyer on an online application. You agreed on a price and a place to meet. It is 8 at night when you arrive. The buyer looks at the bike. Then the buyer points a gun at you and says, give me the keys.

You’re a legal gun owner. You’re armed. You move, draw your firearm, and shoot your attacker in the chest. Your attacker drove away with his friend and was arrested at the local hospital. You stayed at the scene and called the police.

Third story- Do you have a gun nearby when you wake up unexpectedly?

It is 8 in the morning when you hear something happening in your garage. You get up and pull on your pants and your gun. You walk to the center of your home and hear someone at your front door. A stranger says, ‘No one’s home.’

Your front door is kicked open and two men rush inside. You shoot them. One runs away. You back up to your bedroom and call the police.

The second criminal was arrested when he was dropped off at the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Fourth story- Are you armed as you work at a cell phone store?

Here are two stories with two different results. In the first story, you’re a young woman getting into your car while you’re parked in a Walgreens parking lot. A woman points a gun at you and tells you to get out of your car. You jump out and the robber drives away.

The next day, a different person is working in a cell phone store. A man dressed as a woman comes in and points his gun at you and demands you open the cash register. You’re a legal gun owner and you’re carrying concealed. You draw your gun and shoot your attacker. He runs out of the store, firing his gun as he runs away.

Your robber dumps his stolen getaway car. Both the robber and the female carjacker drive to the nearby city. They are arrested as they drop the wounded man off at the hospital.

I like the first one where the old guy pulls a gun on the 19 yr.old that thinks he is hot sh!t. That is a definite moment of truth for the young, cocky low life. It is time for him to change occupations because he is not good at this one.

Based on everything revealed in these brief accounts, if it was in Michigan, none of the ‘victims’ would/should face charges. All of the victims acted in prudent and justifiable ways. And if none of them were injured, they were very fortunate.


I was taught when I became a Marine over fifty six years ago you don’t just shoot once, you keep shooting until the bad guy is down. Ammunition is cheap, your life is precious. Don’t let the bad guy drives away, wait for the police take their body away.
