Have you ever drew a firearm on someone?

I was reading this exact thread on another forum asking people if they had ever felt the need to draw on someone and I was surprised at the sheer number of people who had drawn and the wide spectrum of scenarios people felt the need to draw and or fire.

For me personally, no I've never needed to draw on someone. We used to live very near a college campus when we were broke poor though and had two instances where drunk students we didn't know barged into our apartment at night and had to be shown the door (we had no AC and we used to leave the door open with the screen storm door closed in the afternoons before going to bed, but never when we were actually in bed), but there was never a need to draw. On another occasion I heard a crash as another drunk college student tried to hop our fence and then passed out in the backyard, upon regaining consciousness the kid didn't know where he was or how he got there and then proceeded to try to open our back door. Rolleyes I've had a couple instances where people have road raged out on me and I thought they were going to try something stupid at a stop light, but it's never come to that point.

Either way if nobody wants to share any stories the results of the poll ought to be interesting.

Nope, never. And I hope it stays that way.

I've drawn twice since I started carrying, but I've never had to shoot anyone. I have had to beat, bludgeon, slash, stab, and otherwise harm people by other means, but thankfully, it's been a very long time.

Never had to draw but I've had my hand on it while taking evasive action in my car to avoid a carjacking. I too have been surprised by the number of people who have drawn. Initially it concerned me when I realized that a seemingly high number of people have done it and I imagined gun owners pulling their guns all willy nilly just like the media loves to report. That is until I had my own close call with my kid in the car. My outlook changed substantially that day. I had people question my actions, and I didn't even draw.

The world is a scary place and there are a lot of bad people out there. The antis love to tell us stuff like "the odds are so slim that you will ever.....(insert finishing statement here)". I beg to differ, the odds are not all that slim and anybody who pays attention even to the liberal slanted media should realize that.

No, i have not, nor do I expect to. I will be perfectly happy if the epitaph on my tombstone at 90 says "carried a gun every day, never needed to use it". But more importantly is making it too 90 which carrying may someday ensure.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

No, I have not had to. I will also never just draw...if I feel threatened to the point of drawing, it will end with me pulling the trigger to stop the threat.

"To infinity and beyond" are the number of times I have dreamed of wringing the neck of some fool who richly deserved it, or worse. But draw or fire? No.

And although this is in retrospect, I honestly can't recall a time living in Maryland that I needed a firearm on me, even though I had them at home for decades.

Maybe that's cheating though. Who is to say? On some rare occasion, would I have decided to draw if I did have the legal ability to carry in MD, but absent that, the chance never presented itself?

The only time I wished I could rest my hand on a CC weapon and prepare to draw was in a nearly empty train station just outside Chicago....but....no gun, therefore no resting hand on my weapon to think about drawing.....

Otherwise no.

I thought I was going to have to once, but fortunately I didn't have to. All I have to say is fuck Philadelphia and their subways.

I drew a butterfly on someone once; thank god it wasn't a permanent marker.
