Okay here's what happened, I was driving home last night, suddenly someone cut me off and then stopped short. I was inches from hitting the car so I started to beep my horn, and the guy jumps out yelling and screaming at me. I told him to calm down, that it was not worth fighting over yet he said no it was worth it. So that's when I knew it was going to be a problem! As I am still trying to down talk the situation, he went reaching for something in the car, so naturally I went in my glove box and put the
magazine into my 1911. As I was doing that, he pulled out a bat, so I put my gun back in the glove box and jumped out of my car. Seeing that he didn't have a firearm, I knew I was safe... this guy was really puny. I just had to get the bat away from him, I didn't want him to hit my car or me with it. So, I thought really fast my CR2 8X blu-ray keychain on my keys should do the trick. As I was fishing it out of my pocket he started to charge me, screaming with the bat raised over his head like a scene from the movie 300!
All I did was shine the unfocused 8x at his face, and it stopped him dead in his tracks. He immediately backed down and was like what is that a f**king taser?! I started to laugh, and he didn't do anything else after that. He then got in his car and left . So thats how my 8x saved my ass !

Dude, a moron VS a Marine??

You don't need a laser brother!

Actually, any time a situation can be dissolved without violence is a GOOD thing.

Excellent judgment call.

Thanks for all you do for our country!!!

I love it! It is amazing how blinding and disorienting an 8x can be when unfocused and shined in your face. I've tried it on myself. The effect is very effective.

Awesome story!...now I can tell my friends and my girl that laser pointers/torches aren't only for pointing, burning or playing around with!(well that's what i mostly do with the ones i had/have)...good call with the gun btw, if it were me, i probably pulled that out instead :eek:...

now if it were a 12x...

Oh ---- a 1911 is a STOPPER. At my age, my 380 would have ended it with a double tap. Glad it ended well for you.

Too bad a friend couldn't have caught it on video. LOL. I loved the one you posted with the 3 second KO.

Great call there, buddy. Nice to know you avoided the fight :)

Also, so much power in such a little host... Didn't you feel like Will Smith on MIB when they gave him the uber little gun?

Good thinking, good use, and thank you for your service! I hope that wako doesn't arm himself with anything greater, for his sake.

if diesel lived in any other place than nyc, i would have called bullshit.
but this is 100% true.

i almost got into a few fist fights a couple years ago when my main mode of transportation was my bike.

good shit diesel.

I don't even live in the city folks, and one time a driver flew by me, screeched to a stop blocking the road, got out of his car and tried to engage me just for passing him in a legal passing zone.

New york has some douches running free, that's for sure.
