A NUT CASE WITH A GUN-ACTIVE SHOOTER!! You are UNarmed because it IS a bar. What is your response? Improvised weapons? Edged weapons? Broken beer bottle? WWYD?

I'd probably grab the closest pool cue, yes it may break but tis a good long weapon. Maybe I'd grab the 8ball, use it like a brass knuckle.:D, if the pool table was too far..I'd just use my beer mug and wallop it over their head.

haul a$$:eek:

If your being attacked by multipe attackers in a Bar and you need to fight your way out, you grab whatever is available. Otherwise, you just leave the bar. It is not like the movies, unless you feared for you life, you might be charged with assault, possibly assault with a deadly weapon.

In Minnesota it's not against the law to carry in a bar if you have a PCP. (permit to carry a pistol) You'd best not blow over a .04 (1/2 of a DWI). The BEST thing is to drink a soda.. Gain distance, get out if you can, use your EVER PRESENT CELL PHONE while your carrying. Only as a last resort draw/use your weapon. And stop the threat!!

What would Chuck Norris (http://www.chucknorrisfacts.com/) do?


February 5, 2006, 12:30 PM

I would throw darts at him with accuracy and precision.

If that failed, I would break a bottle over the bar and say "You want me to cut you?"

If even that failed, I would jump into a full roundhouse kick which will at once incapacitate him, and disarm him!

Blast 'em with the fire hose!

...What fire hose?!

Oh crap!

February 5, 2006, 02:01 PM
Run out the back door. There isn't a back door? Where do you want one!

February 5, 2006, 02:03 PM
Yes, let's make a back door and vanish in a flurry of fire extinguisher haze...

There isn't a back door? Where do you want one!

LOL. Awww...man. My eyes are tearing up laughing. That was good.

February 5, 2006, 11:21 PM
In all seriousness, I'd evaluate the situation and likely haul outta there, unless I was close enough, and the shooter was focussing on something else so intently that I could deliver a devastating enough blow to their head to make them go unconscious.

If I am reading this "scenario" correctly. There is a guy in a bar with a gun and is SHOOTING it. There are pool sticks, ash trays, beer nuts etc to choose from as a weapon...not sure about the rest of you, but I am Outta There!! Best hope is to throw some pork rinds into his mouth and hope he suffocates on the dry mouth or better yet, a heart attack from the cholesterol clog he would get from em.
Seriously, any reply other than getting the hell outta there and calling the police is absolutely absurd!

February 6, 2006, 07:24 AM
My list, in order of preference:

- Get out of the kill zone;
- Take cover;
- Fight back;
- Die like a man.

February 6, 2006, 08:10 AM
I used to own a boat named "OUTTA HERE" I think I'd be looking for it!

February 6, 2006, 01:09 PM
Someone has a gun, firing it wildly, and you don't? No brainer. Its time to GTHOD.....

February 6, 2006, 01:47 PM
You are UNarmed because it IS a bar.

I wouldn't be unarmed to begin with. It's not illegal to carry into a bar here in NH, and I damned sure wouldn't go into a bar unarmed. If I lived somewhere that I couldn't carry into a bar, I just wouldn't go into the bar to begin with.

... in some cases the only thing better than presence of mind is absence of body. Car wrecks and shootings both spring to mind.

I do not go to bars where (a) I cannot carry my sidearm, or (b) I see a possibility of an armed assault. Obviously this is a strain as I am not precognitive, but I try to be aware of the places I frequent.

Be aware. Know where you are and the general tenor of the environment - the people and circumstances surrounding you. Know if and where the emergency exit is located. Do not be so 'involved' (drunk) you cannot see what is happening.

In short, be aware.

If one cannot keep reasonably sober and retain normal brain functions, perhaps one should hire a few bodyguards who will. I'm just not that wealthy.

I would pose a very vague, hypothetical question. Then, while he was trying to formulate a reply that covered all the possible scenarios, I'd finish my onion rings and stroll away into the sunset. ;)

Weeg, the chuck norris link is great, that is some funny crap.

As for the bar, I'd do whatever seemed best to keep my hide in it's best condition.

February 9, 2006, 06:08 AM
say "hey buddy let me buy you a drink" it might calm him down. you know because it will show someone understands.

February 9, 2006, 08:15 AM
Been there, done that.

First, if he's "on" you, resist enough to free yourself. Then get the hell OUT and don't come back soon.

Anybody who'd attack you in a public place is either drunk/drugged or nuts to start with. So keep your comments to a minimum as well.

Oh, and a really good place to go directly after leaving the bar is to the police station to report an assault. Nobody's likely to be arrested, but you got paper in case the attacker later remembers you.

February 10, 2006, 02:08 AM
I am not sure some of you are reading this right...the guy is FIRING his weapon wildly in a bar! I sure as hell am not gonna ask him if I can buy him a drink! I am not gonna ask him anything or be able to ask him anything...because I ain't gonna be anywhere near the nutcase .000001 seconds after he pulls out his weapon and starts shooting!!

February 10, 2006, 07:12 AM
Oops! My bad. I guess when I see all caps I find it hard to read so my mind skips it.

In that case, unless you are in some sort of special position, like behind him and he isn't aware of you, you must concentrate on finding enough cover to GET OUT and get as FAR AWAY from the bar as you can as quick as you can.

Once you are out of his earshot, make a ruckus or call 911.

If you happen to be in a safe and good position, grab the hardest, heaviest object nearby (forget it if that's an umbrella, better if it's like a bowling pin) and come down on the top of his head as hard as you can possibly muster.

Then go change your underwear.

One more reason that I think a responsible person should not be worried about carrying ina bar. Its not illegal in my state, and though some are high and mighty about alcohol and guns not mixing, I carry. No one knows, no one will.

Well, I guess you all know, but that doesnt count :p

February 26, 2006, 12:41 PM
If you can get a drop on him, pull out that pocket knife you better always have and plunge it into the side of his neck, saw quickly and cut his throat or break his neck, remember 55 ft-lbs is the magic number. If you can't get the drop on him get the bloody hell out of Dodge.

February 26, 2006, 10:07 PM
The person who asked "back door, where do you want one?", reminded me of a bar in South Texas in the '50's, a drunk fell over backwards and wound up with his head out in the parking lot and his body still in the bar, really do not need much of a building where the average temperature in January is 65'.

February 27, 2006, 11:22 PM
umm...improvised weapons.....only if there are more than one and if not, if he's armed with something less than a gun...my course of action: Possibly talk some sense into said attackers, but if i can't get the words out in time.....Bar Stool, Pool Cue, Beer Bottle, Pocket Knife, another Bar Stool and possibly a pool cue in that order. But most likely the Bar Stool, a nice hefty blunt object which causes sufficient force to persuade the attacker(s) to rethink their next choice. Which is why you should always frequent a bar with non-bolted down bar stools. And mentioned before, if all else fails, just go drinking with Chuck Norris. Because as we all know, The chief export of Chuck Norris is Pain. -BamaXD
