I've been carjacked. At the time, I was armed. I let them have the car.
My point is that a weapon is not an "anti-carjack defense weapon", it's just a weapon.
I got my car back about forty minutes later, the bad guy went to jail, everyone who mattered was happy.
I teach that weapons are for the defense of life, and that each episode must be judged on the spot, separately and accurately.
If you can get out of a situation by giving up your car, your wallet, your keys, your hat, I teach to do so.
If that won't work, you need a weapon. And at that point, I wouldn't want a .22.
