what could i have done better?

A car started following me and even after several turns and attempts to get away from them I pulled in next to the local train station. Thinking they had already kept going I went to pull out back onto the road when it came out of nowhere and blocked my truck from leaving. I was scared and I truly thought they were going to hurt me. i had my M500 12ga in the back of my truck, Would lethal force have been justified? what about pulling the shotgun out?

Are you joking? Did I miss the part where they got out of the car brandishing weapons and surrounded your vehicle?

Do you own a cell phone? Next time, if you feel as strongly that you are in danger, call the cops while you still can and make it plain to see (to them) that you are calling someone. Don't get out of your car until you have to, as that is your best defense as well as means of escape.

Red Flag....

Hmm, sounds way too fishy here.

No detail as to what started this and way too vague as to what happened. Poster has only 5 post? I'm not buying it.

Agree - don't answer this post.

You may think you were blocked...but unless you were surrounded on three sides by swamp filled with alligators, you werent really.

"...in the back of my truck..." As in behind the seat? You have to get out to get to it?
"...Would lethal force have been justified?...what about pulling the shotgun out?..." No.

This reads like a bad short story. Fabricated. Made up.

No it would not have been justified and the little pedal next to the big one would have been a better choice if this was even a real situation.

Don't pull into a spot that didn't allow you a way out. Call the police on your cell.
