OK, I have a story for you. My wife and I were approaching the intersection on our Harley where we turn right to go home. A car suddenly cuts in front of us, missing us by inches. I respond in my normal fashion - by flipping him off. He slams his brakes on, almost causing me to rear-end him, and jumps out. He comes at me, arms waving wildly shouting at me in spanish. I suggest he do something that is anotomically impossible and tell him to get back in his car. He continues towards me. Next thing he knows he is looking down the barrel of a .357. He keeps coming. With my thumb on the hammer, I tell him once more to back off. After more curses in spanish, he does get back in his car and squeals off. The story should end there - but doesn't.
About 20 minutes later at home, the dogs go nuts and the doorbell rings. I answer the door still packing. I open the door to Mesa PD, who asks if I ride a red motorcyle and have a gun. To which I answer yes to both. He asks where the gun is, and I show him. He asks my wife and me tostep outside and hand him the gun. We walk out to seefive Mesa PD cars and a helicopter circling! Apparently someone witnessed my altercation earlier and reported my plate number. They questioned my wife and I separately. I was advised that I may not have been in a position that deadly force was required to prevent bodily injury. I assured him I felt that my wife and I were in a life-threatening situation. After about a half hour they returned my gun to me and all left. No arrests or warnings or tickets issued.
Generally OC'ing a Rugar .357 is "defensively displaying" enough!
