Some info is I was in the US Navy for a while doing support for them on the weather side.
In 2009 I moved to San Diego. I visited SoCal a lot because of family and friends so I knew the place well. One night my wife at the time were walking home and 2 men tried to rob us via knife point. Knowing how to disarm a suspect reaction kicked in and his knife was dropped and hand disabled. The second suspect took off running and Chula Vista police were called and took a report. The next day I bough myself a Ruger SR9 and started to Open Carry that (when it was still legal).
Second instance was in 2010. My wife at the time left me for my CO after my latest deployment and took everything we had other then my Mossberg 500SPX and my SR9. I had extra money to spend so I bought my 1911. The day I was to pick it up around 6PM my wife called my command saying I had gotten a gun and was after her. Police and members of my command showed up asking about the 1911 .45 knowing I didn't have it I denied them to look into my apartment with out a warrant and told them everything showing them paper work that for another 7+ hours I wouldn't have the gun. They called the store and they said nop its still there and the cops allowed me to file a report against her after a lot of talking.
I got the gun shot it about 300rounds worth and came home. As I started turning on my computers and tv and ps3 I heard a thump and screaming "You dropped my baby" I instantly dialed 911 moved the slide back so I could put in a mag and have the gun ready to go with in a split second. Had my right hand in my pocket with the mag in my hand and my bluetooth on while talking to dispatch. The neighbors door was open and so I peeked in and saw 2 women and a man fighting (the man was cheating on his wife and kid and the wife walked in. the lady that was being played tried to run and knocked the baby out of the wifes hands.) I asked if everything was ok and that police were on their way. The man got very angry and started to walk towards me when I turned to the side to show I would protect my self in which I told him "if he came any closer that I would take his actions as a threat on my life and those around me and use the necessary force to stop him and to keep his hands where I can see them so I know he doesn't have a weapon" (these are always my words which is what my friend down in San Diego thats a LEO told me to say.) He turned away and grabbed a knife out of the kitchen. Both ladys ran in to the bathroom and locked the door in which time I loaded my gun and was ready to defend myself. I again told him to back off and then drop the knife or I would shoot. He broke down and started saying his life was over. He kept the knife close so I stayed on guard till police showed up in which they draw on me seeing my gun and seeing I was the one on the phone and in a shirt that said I was Navy. I told them what I was doing and dropped my mag and took out my round in the chamber and put it on the AC unit.
Both ladys thanked me then started going at each other and for my protection I told the cops bare info and told them if they wanted count by count details to listen to my dispatch record. One wanted to keep my gun but the other sided with me and gave it back.
I finally moved here and love it.
My first in counter was up in the air.
So my girl friend was getting sexually harassed at her job. That has also gotten physical. (Many co workers have also been dealing with the same stuff just were to scared as they felt like no one would support them as they were workers and he a manager) Since I was done mountain biking I had it on along with my video camera to help protect my first interaction with the man. After asking for the store manage as he was just the low end manager he started to get very angry in which I informed him I have cameras audio and video recording for my personal protection. In which he told me to stop recording and walked away. I went to the front of the store and had him called up in which time he said he was going to call the police. Before picking up his phone mine was already dialing. I then went in front making sure I was in camera view of the store and made sure my camera was still recording just didn't inform him.
After a few min other customers were asking about my gun all were happy I supported my rights at such a young age.
I saw Meridian Police pull up to the other store as my friend had also called. Even though I was OCing I gave them my CWP when asked because this wasn't about me it was about her and they were being very polite and respectful (why aren't cops like this every day) and asked why I had my gun on my side I stated I was just finishing up biking at the top of Bogus and always has it by my side. They then asked about my side of the story and said to just keep my hands away from my gun when confronting people in which I responded that why I have my camera it protects me in that way. They told me to go wait for a response from my friend in which they shook my hand and said keep up the good work.
My girl friend was very unstable so I went to the gas station for some OJ. I had 2 men behind me talking about my 1911 behind me in which I was getting a little nervous so I turned to make it harder for them if they where thinking of being stupid. I hurried out and sat back in my car and started to talk to my friend. The 2 guys came out and one of them said hey congratulations on the open carry. Which made my stress go down and kinda be happy.
My latest was very hot.
July 3rd around 2AM
I just bought my new company car a Subaru WRX that has been modified. Only had it for a week and some one tried to break into it. So I started parking it in my front yard while I waited for a aftermarket alarm to get shipped. I just got home from riding my bike at Bogus and was calming down to get ready for bed. I hear some noise out side so I grabbed the 1911 put the hammer back and held it behind me as I opened the door. 2 men one about 4feet away and another trying to unlock my door of my car about 10feet away were just standing there. The one on the look out and closest to me pulled out a knife and told me to go back in side or my car wouldn't be the only thing hurt. I laughed and draw my weapon and kept my finger off the trigger but still in side as I have it set for a 4-4.5LB pull as the old mechanism broke while I was changing holsters earlier this year and discharged into my floor at my house. The man started to move away from my car and next to his friend in which I moved to position myself to have a better eye on them both, behind them was brick so if my hallow point went through it was go into brick and not someone and so I wouldn't have to adjust a lot if they did charge at me. After a few words were exchanged I remembered who one was and identified him. They both knew it was over and dropped the knife and ran. Police were called and I told them what happend. And they went and had a talk with them. The next day I saw them both in which they said they were sorry and gave me their story. I warned them that they could of been in a body bag and they both turned ghost and said it would never happen again to any one and that they were thankful for getting a second chance. All shock hands and went our own ways.
Well enough of me writing this book.
I'll withold comment on the rest of it, but I am curious about this: how the hell did u manage to "break" a 1911 trigger ?
