Bob - I also think the actual threat level is pretty low. If they were a serious threat, would they have let you kick them out of the building? They were mouthing off so they can all grab each others' dicks and congratulate each other for being so hard.

That being said, having extra situational awareness (and preparedness) is always a good thing.

Seriously. Don't shoot kids that are armed with paintball guns. Knock their teeth in instead. Why does every thread end in gunplay?

This is your first and best weapon...

At 10pm if three guys point a gun at me I'm not challenging them to a fist fight and I'm not waiting to find out if it's a paintball gun or not.

I'm curious about the geography. Big box store that sells handguns so you are not in Mass unless it's Bass pro or Cabelas.
Where is this taking place specifically or generally if you will?

And I think my reply to their smack threats would have been - "You gentlemen realize I work in a GUN store right...?

Kinda like every answer in a French Cuisine Forum is "Top with Bearnaise Sauce"...
This statement is terribly, terribly wrong on an immense amount of levels. French cuisine has at the very least FOUR recipes that I know of, that do not involve Bearnaise.

OP, if you have to shoot them, remember: dead men tell no tales. If you leave only one of them breathing, you'll find yourself swimming in a vast ocean of shit. And no, I'm not serious. About the Bearnaise anyway.

If felons, aren't they breaking both state and federal law by handling ammo? Who am I kidding, they'd get a judge that would rule they only doing it to sell, not use.

I would have open palm bitch slapped him as hard as I could right across his mouth
then enbloc would be making you brownies to bring up on visiting day while you serve your 6 months. that brother bitch would be screaming assault and tossing the race card as far as he could. with the 3 amigos taking cell phone video and giving witness statements.

you think getting in a fight is 6 months in jail?

Sadly I can't eat enbloc's brownies on the keto diet.

Glad that worked out for you but in this day and age I'd never have a conversation w/ LEO about.....
My PD knows me very well. My point was let them know about the threat. In my case the inspector opened the topic.

Quick funny. She stopped me one day for speeding. Walked up to the window then yelled at me for buying a new truck. Said she wouldn't have wasted her time stopping me if she knew. Not all cops are dicks.

My bet is that it is BP (only big box in area with ammo out in the open) in Foxboro. BP/Cabela's won't give a damn if an employee gets smoked, but they will care about their anti-gun policies.

I'd take the threat very seriously and likely these thugs are from one of the ghetto towns around. Wouldn't surprise me if they've been involved in shootings/stabbings before. And the judges will just let them go with little or no punishment.

Cameras, documentation, complaints, etc. are all well and good so that the PD won't have to search very hard to find the perps, but all that is "after the fact" and after the damage is done.

So the OP MUST do what he can to protect himself, as nobody else will do it for him.

Good luck.

But I don't always think things through.
Shit,a couple of days ago you were all ready to beat a photographers ass. You sit and binge watch Rocky movies?

Yeah I'll beat anyone's ass who wants to take fap pics of my wife or kids. Keep that shit in that thread.


And if three violent, known to be felon homies are surrounding me and threatening to kill me I'll take that as a credible threat to my life and sure as f*** won't wait for one of them to strike first. YMMV.

So I work as a gun shop manager in a big-box sporting goods store. Tuesday a group of 3 yoots brushed closely past me as I was stocking product on a shelf, on their way towards window shopping the handgun counter. Well-dressed, but obviously not employed as they were in the shop at 11:00 am, which is their usual visiting time. They have been buying paintball equipment recently, which I understand is a new trend among urban yoots as a non-lethal means of intimidating their "enemies".

They are known felons and shoplifters, and under 21. I allowed them to window shop all they wanted, that's not a problem.

When they went to the handgun ammo display and started handling boxes although they can't legally buy handgun ammo, I walked up, said "Good morning." They answered, "What?" in a challenging manner. "Good morning, how can I help you today?"

"Why you following us? Leave us alone, n-word. We gonna slap you." "I'll smack you around."

From there, they escalated their language, including, "You better have good life insurance, because I"m going to get you," and "We'll see you outside." "I'll be waiting for you, n-word." Lots more n-bombs and f-bombs were hurled at me as I escorted them to the door.

So even if they have been banned from the store and told by local PD (who instantly recognized them from the video clips we sent them) that they will be arrested if they try to enter it, what do you think the probability is that they might wait for me one night as the store closes and attack, or follow my vehicle and attack me on the road or at home? Or is it merely big talk from urban punks?

It's funny how life changes on the borderline between "communities". Now my head is on a swivel constantly, and I scope out the entire parking lot for stalkers before walking to my car. I'm living in Condition Orange. It's stressful.
Since you didn't do anything to them, they probably forgot you already. Those with low IQ tend to have short attention spans.

this....


and most likely they're a couple pussies with no actual gang affiliation. Probably middle class black kids who listen to rap and go around acting tough but would literally piss themselves if a gun were ever pointed at them.

Wait, do you work at Dicks? If you do, disregard any useful advice, 'cause NES is boycotting Dicks. [wink]
Can't be a MA Dicks, since that's all tucked far away. But OP didn’t say MA and we all know this isn’t MAShooters.

Practice your draw and carry always

Thanks guys. A fistfight is not for me, being over 60. You know how it goes, too old to fight, too slow to run... Also I don't believe in close-up altercations that guarantee I'll receive damage. If you are in a fair fight, you have a bad strategy. I much prefer long-range rifle tactics. But the geographic and other circumstances dictate that a concealed pistol is the only appropriate tool for the job if needed.
Pig stick the first one, the rest will think twice. No need to fist fight. But, if you'd rather, just double tap his ass.

.
Surrounding towns: Walpole, Sharon, Mansfield, Plainville - NOT ghetto towns. There are certain areas, mostly apartment complexes, where they may inhabit, but I highly doubt they are from the area. If they are from an immediate surrounding town, they're just wanna-bee's. If it is BP in Foxboro, the only way they are getting there from a ghetto town is to steal a car from WM or the Walpole Mall cause the bus from da hood ain't be going any further South or from Emerald Square Mall in No. Attleboro cause the bus headin North don't get there from here eithah.

Anyway, I agree with Len, that you should take their threats seriously and be vigilant. One never knows what anybody will do these days.

Sounds very similar to what happened to me 4 years ago on the 4th of July. Girlfriend and I were going to the local fireworks. Parked at town hall. Walked down a well known lane/ alley. Four guys around 19 or 20 are hanging out with one on the cell phone. Guys starts screaming at me and says I'm listening to his phone conversation. Tells me how he and his boys are going to f**k me up and then F**k my girlfriend. They all laughed. I sent the girlfriend ahead. Ring leader walks to me and in my face again says, I'm gonna F**k you up old man. I borrowed a line from a movie and said, you planning on talking me to death, or are you going to get busy. Now his buddies laugh at him and he begins to back step, telling me how he guesses he can't hit me because it's a bigger crime to hit old guys. I could see that he had a knife with a clip in his pocket. I tell him start swinging or start moving. He moves along with his boys. End of story. I was happy that they moved on. I sure didn't want to shoot anyone and spend the evening explaining it to the police, while the girlfriend waited for me at the fireworks. She'd have been pissed and you guys all know that we surely don't want a pissed off girlfriend, all because of some kids.
