I was in this bar in Tibet one night when a bunch of Nazis walked in with MP40s and started blasting. I had to take cover behind an overturned table and I returned fire with my Hipower and the endless magazine. I set a fire too.

Yeah, but even so...

... your woman had to bail you out.

For a hottie, she can drink and throw a good punch, WA.

I learned a long time ago that alcohol gives people "false courage" and tequila makes some people mean.

Best to avoid the places all together...

Run is the 2nd best option... moving targets are harder to hit.

Especially if they are a little drunk
I know from experience chasing drunks through Korea when I was an mp

1) they run faster then they think there running
2) there is no such thing as a straight line or even close to it
3)its normally easiest to pace them and wait for them to run into a telephone pole/parked car/ fence that just jumped right out in front of them

back on topic if the shtf in a bar I will go out the nearest exit no matter what kind of exit it is window firedoor back door through the kitchen

on the note of hiding behind someone I am 6'3 There aint very many people I can hide behind where my head aint above theres
And death climbs the steps one by one, To give you the rose that's been burnt by her son, Point me to the sky above I can't get there on my own, Walk me through the graveyard Dig up her bones

I usually pull my wife in front of me and use her shoulder as a rest.

When the shooting commences, I calmly order another drink (usually a double), sit back and watch the fun. That's why I like bars with big mirrors behind the bar... don't even need to swivel my barstool around....

.... "more pretzels please!"

Years ago in my Dads bar I was bouncing, a little teeny dude was whipping rear on the pool table, a guy lost and wanted to beat his head in the teeny dude gets behind me grabbing my shirt pushing me at the big dude. I was laffing so hard at this, the big guy circling me trying to hit the teeny guy who is trying to keep me in front of him. I made em play the game over, teeny guy won again, big guy left in a huff.

Bar fights are usually over some stupid event like losing at pool. or looking at a guys lady too hard, had to break up a lot of em, next day all involved (cept me) act like they knew it too.

Never in my life seen a huge brawl like the movies tho.

Had a guy claim he "cleared" bars, but when he hit me upside my head I found he was easy to put down never met a tough drunk yet.

This thread had potential. It was a good and reasonable question.

It deteriorated into a contest to see who could be the most silly.

Closed for high noise, low signal.
