The light turns green and we all turn left onto the road, the lanes merge from 2 lanes into 1 almost instantly so im stuck behind the ford. The speed limit on that road is 55 mph and the ford decides to drive at 20 mph...so i decide to pass him on his right in a normal manner.. (the road is very wide, enough for 2-3 lanes easy, don't question why there is only 1 lane..California for you) the driver sees me starting to pass and instantly turns hard right trying to ram into me i accelerate and avoid his attempt into side swipe me. I get in front of him and hes either trying to tail gate me/go around me/ or ram into me i wasn't able to find out because he was to slow. He starts chasing me and we approach a tight hair pin in his attempt to catch up to me he takes the corner way to fast and brakes hard almost running into the train tracks/off the road. After that i never saw him again.

Situations like this really open up your eyes and make you appreciate the fact that we are able to conceal carry/stay armed here in the U.S. Very thankful and happy that the situation didn't go down a different way. Thank you APR!
This is a good argument for conceal carry. I always ask people, that want to outright ban guns, if they have ever been in a situation they didn't think they could handle. I gave examples of multiple dudes running up on you and your girl, and they said basically they would fight and not be a pussy. It's not that black and white in the real world. You come in contact with the wrong people, and you are at there mercy, Idc what type of fighting skills you have. You have a gun it becomes a whole different situation though. I have been in a situation where I thought I was going to lose my life, and I didn't have a firearm bc I was too young at the time. Stepping off the soapbox. Glad you guys are ok.

Thanks, absolutely agree a lot of people who i know that want guns banned and VERY anti-confrontation and would do ANYTHING to avoid any awkward social situation if it actually every happened. In the real world horrible things happen and we don't live in a "safe space" like many people think.

I shared my story with some friends and strangers and a lot of them spouted "OH i would just fight them"...not sure what world people live in or if people think we live in a movie, but when your with your wife and a its a 5 vs 1 situation your going to lose 99% of the time, I've been in fights before and can defend my self like a normal person, but i know for a fact i would not stand a chance in a 5v1 situation like many people think they can.

Yeah Florida is pretty simple. A 2 hour "class" which is just a safety briefing that goes over some of the laws and then you pay the state and they send your card.

Not at all, California laws to just PURCHASE a firearm are ridiculous. Getting a CCW is a nightmare of its own. Gun laws here are on a whole new level of crazy as well.

Guns are not illegal in California, but it sure damn feels like it. The easier it is to get a gun the better.

They do a full background check and you're photographed and finger printed..
So its not just a walk in and out kinda thing. But it is rather simple.


Plus there is a reason were nicknamed the "Gunshine state" (For those that dont know Florida legit nickname is the "Sunshine State" )

That's not something I'll ever understand. There's way too many idiots and way too many kids that can't control their feelings and their actions.

speaking of cop karma, here's a story from last year.

I was commuting to work, in county's old town, means extra careful of cops. I was doing exactly the speed limit, because of the motorcycle cop was in front of me. All of a sudden, I saw a first gen Scion tC flying to my ass. She's a skinny lady in her 40's whose probably not doing good in life, given the car's condition and how she's dressed. I saw her in rearview mirror giving me move over or speed up gestures, and not aware that the cop was right in front of me. She therefore, passed me on the middle turning lane thing, involving yellow lines (if i'm trying to make sense), if I sped up a little bit, she could've scratched my bumper. So I honked my horn, then she stook her head out of the window, yelling at me, flipping me. I had to yell at the officer who was 400 feet away from me. He pulled up to a turning lane, I slowed down to let him go and pulled the scion over. When I passed her, she gave me a double middle finger as I smiled her passing by

It took me 6 months to get my CCW in Cali - had prior CCW in Illinois and a veteran, which sped the process up. It's a nightmare here in Cali.
