Here is what I would have done

A few options (said in jest please don't freak)

A. Ever seen a pickup fly? I think I would have pounded the gas so hard that I jumped the whole scene.

B. I would have waited till there was a line of em and shot once hoping for a pass through

C. Switch to hand grenades? I guess I'm going to have to start towing my trailer to bring along all the tactical stuff I will need in a given day.

D. Not said in jest.......I WOULD DO EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID EXCEPT I WOULD CALL THE POLICE. I don't understand your aversion to LEO's then again I did not have the experience you did in Alaska. Frankly that situation sounds more suited for a QRT or Swat.

The LEO's of the world are there for a reason and guys like the ones who posted previously here are to be respected and commended.

Kind Regards, Vermonter

Rule numero uno

Your personal safty comes first.

It is imposible to do anyone any good if you become another victim. All you have done is create another victim.

I as a firefigher have actualy had situations where we arrived before law enforcement, and waited a safe distance away until they cleared the scene. If I had rode though a situatoin like the OP described I would have driven a safe distance away, and called 911. I can assure you the dispatcher you talk to will advise you not to return to the scene.
