Had to "Brandish" twice, once was certainly a major threat, the other merely veiled.
Was out with a friend in the mountains at a shooting range in Colorado. We had ALL of our weapons out just havin a "Plinkin party" Sitting at a stoplight carload of,,well not so nice fella's pulled alongside. One hung out of the passenger window with a snub nose .38 told my friend who was the driver "Hand me your wallet or I blow you up" I reached over the back seat and pulled out my 12 gauge reached it behind my buddies head and damn near touched the bastid on the nose and told him" drop the gun or I blow up your whole damn car" They smoked their wheels running a red light almost causing a pile up.
The second time I was in my Van with my wife and two kids in back. Again at a redlight. Van had a CB in the headliner. Fella pulled alongside said "Nice CB ya got, think I'll just take it" Reached down into the "boot" of the Van told him " Well here take 240 grains of lead with it" Again,,the same reaction smokin tires into the intersection. This time there was a collision, I just drove around it. Wonder if he gave an excuse to the cops like,,a fella threatened me with a gun?
