depends on the situation. I think you did the right thing from the description of the circumstances. If the guy looks high as hell and the gun is literally right in my face with in an arms reach i would maybe take my chances going for the gun when he says give me your wallet. Thats my cue to fake for the wallet sidestep and put him in an arm lock and put his own gun into his guts.

If he was 5 feet away i would have just given him my wallet and cell or keys or whatever, not worth it for a couple hundred bucks worth of stuff. And i dont have a CCW or even a handgun so i would be SOL if he was smooth and wise about it.

Lastly, i always try to look people down to let them know i know they are there. I KNOW MUCH HARDER WHEN YOU ARE DELIVERING STUFF. But at 5:40 am there wasnt likely many people around, so i would have positioned myself different not turned my back etc. But thats all hindsight so since you walked away from it with just a few dollars short of when you started i would say you did all right.


Oh one more thing i could have jsut as easily added to the whats your fear post. I am scared of wrestling with a junkie and getting poked with an AIDS needle. YIKES!! I would not belive the tests and not sleep well for months.

i'm working on getting my ccw right now, and with the police academy coming up soon, i don't plan to be unarmed...but for a few bucks and your cell phone, that was the right move, no great loss, and you can go home and see the family, glad it worked out for you without injury

be prepared in case this happens again, dont carry alot of cash, just credit cards so you can cancel them, and remember that these things dont just happen at taco bells, people run the risks of having this happen every day, try not to put yourself in that position again...ie travel in groups of two or more, and take other precautions. good luck, keep a level head, and you will be fine.

Get some pepper spray with the staining die in it ...my wife travels to a bunch of stores throughout the day and night and I got her some of this at Joes army surplus , but I know you can get it anywhere ...at least if you get the thug in the eyes he / she cant see you and you may have a chance to escape .

Just a thought and the law would never say you used excessive force such as a bullet to the head would do.
