* You want to be the first to call 911 - it does seem that the first caller is the most believed, at least at first
* If they are causing trouble - you may save someone else's property and/or life by alerting the authorities
* If it was an emergency and they just needed help - police are better equipped in that situation to get them help

Your situation is a little different in that you didn't draw and no one but these two saw it. So it isn't likely that you would have a bystander calling 911 for a "man with a gun" and a description of your vehicle and license plate. But what if one of these two guys did - just to get back at you? I would never have thought of that until it was brought up here in other posts.
Everything you said makes sense.
Do what you say you're gonna do.
