Could have caused you serious problems once you took your gun out of your holster. There were two of them to testify against the one of you. Glad that they didn't do the MWAG routine on you. As suggested, you need a better method of dealing with your "friends".

:iagree: but only partially.

No need to meet - avoid the drama. Leave the camera at the police station. Also no need to make the comment about her deleting your contact info.

Think of conversation as throwing a ball back and forth- you throw a statement out & that prompts a reply. Dont throw and dont catch. Dont reward an instigator with a response.

Indifference is the best tactic & cruelest blow.

Just leave it at the police station as a found item. She can pick it up from the police at the station.

No guns, no cops, no worries.



^^^^^^ There you go!

Once it has been established that it is OK for a person (acting on her behalf) to take the camera, hand it over and shut up!

Absolutely NO need for further discussion, particularly concerning the woman.

I'm curious about this statement. What made him say that? It seems out of place, like some part of the conversation is missing.

Also, I'm not to sure that if two complete strangers under these circumstances asked me if I was C-dub that I would say, Yeah. I might say, "Who? Never heard of him."

While I agree with WildBIll, I didn't actually post that quote. :tiphat:

Some folks always come with drama and trouble baggage. Successful avoidance of situations like the one in the OP starts with avoiding any involvement with these folks at the get go.

Avoidance is the best option. What does "MWAG" stand for?

*Edit: My guess is it stands for "Man With A Gun".

I agree with the majority, avoidance is the best thing you could have done differently. You felt the need to draw your firearm for your safety with you being outnumbered and unsure of what they would do.

I am not sure if the question was answered but was the OP boxed in at the scene?

The good thing is nobody got hurt, and everyone went home to their family.

You should've mailed the camera instead. Property disputes with the ex or in this case the ex's agent often turn deadly. A coworker of mine was killed over a bbq grill.
