i almost got shot!!

Post by iThane » Sun Dec 12, 2010 2:30 pm

not really.. but here's a little story id like to share about my experiences last night while on our way to the strip in las vegas..

so i was just cruising down the i15 going south, just changing lanes to pass up some slow grandpa in his f150, when out of nowhere i see a light reflect off a car's rim that was less than 5 inches away from my car.. some freaking idiot was driving with his god damn lights off and i almost side swiped the mother f***er! i had to swerve back into my lane and he jumped to the right, noticing what just happened he decides to roll down his window and stick half his body out of his car just to stare me down.. some idiot gangster in his POS red honda with walmart decals and no muffler, driving with no headlights on his rice burner. i started laughing and down shifted to speed away as my 4 other friends started screaming because they thought he was going to pull out a gun.. even with the extra 750 pounds (approx. 150 lb a person) and a 3/4 tank of gas, i hear him grabbing gears as he down shifts twice struggling to keep up to my bone stock sxt? we're bobbing and weaving through traffic and he wouldn't slow down so i jumped 4 lanes to dive onto the sahara exit, and finally lost him. with the fear of my car being vandalized, i parked in the biggest parking lot i could find, and then we walked the strip. oh happy day :D i just found it humorous that even with all the extra weight in my car, i pulled away from him like i was racing a golf cart in a ferrari..

So many things wrong with this thread...


So he stared at you and you thought he was gonna shoot you?

I don't see anywhere in the thread where you said you saw a gun. Just some friends seeing a mad guy thinking he was going to shoot you guys.

Some idiot is brave enough to stick half his body out of the car, I'm brave enough to see how good of a cushion he makes between the two cars. Argument over.

Me and about 4 other buddies had an ex-military of some sort man pull a gun on us in a parking garage.

He was crazy. We were almost on the top and he climbed up the middle of the thing, didn't walk up.
Got up to the top and was like someone down the bottom said you guys are up here talking about me and starts going crazy.

guns honestly scare me.
how is it legal that people can just purchase guns? i understand reasons
for hunting and such, and its hard to control the use of weapons, but in
all i think guns are just too easy to get a hold of.

Making them illegal won't make them any less popular.
Plus will make things worse for people who abide by the law.

:withstupid: Criminals will always find a source for weapons. Gun control laws only remove guns from law abiding citizens (who should have them for self defense,
and usually undergo training before getting permits).

Other people with guns scare me more. So my solution? When I move into an actual home, since I'm in an apartment complex right now, I will be purchasing a weapon of some sort to either keep with/on me, or at home locked up in case of emergencies. I spent nearly 13 months total in Afghanistan to protect everybody's freedom in America, but I am not going to take it kindly if some douchebag thinks it's alright to come up in my house to rob me or attack my family.

I understand how you are scared of guns, but everything is always somehow messed up because of certain groups of people who ruin it... ya know? I'm not gonna go wave my gun around, hollerin and such. It'll be for my own personal safety.

Glad he didn't actually pull a gun out on ya :thumbup: :rofl:

He allegedly had half his body out the window, your lucky he didn't pull something else out.

DUDE! I was just thinking about you the other day! How's the car?

I've had similar situations, except the guy driving like an ass pulled a badge, not a gun lol.

Ouch :shock:

Everyone was freaking out but I was actually kinda having fun with the guy in heavy traffic. For some reason I don't regularly react to danger.. Like when I was little the mastiff down our street got loose and was charging toward me and all that was going through my head was, "awww puppy!"

Pretty bad assumption. :roll: The only time that I've had a gun pulled on me or was shot at was by caucasians.

my friends lack common sense.. honestly.

and yes i admit, completely idiotic, especially with 4 other people in the
car, but its not like i do it often, which still doesn't excuse me. but at least
i was sober, eh? :thumbup: could have been worse. all in all im just glad
nobody really got shot? and really it was his fault for driving without his
lights on.
