I'm not seeing how "skeering off' guys in push-up bras selling meat out of truck relates to the OP scenario
Years ago, I was a bouncer in a rough bar. I was in the apt upstairs and heard some glass breaking. I go down to look see a guy attempting to get into the bar. He was cut up a bit, told me his buddy was gonna get me from behind. Both went to jail, I had no gun on me.

Another incident at the bar: 2 guys trying to sell some drugs, I walk em both out th efront door, one turns and empties his .25 at me, all missed tho. Both were arrested.

Another time I was escorting a gent out, his brother stabbed me in my neck. Right over my spine, missed the important stuff by a very small margin.

Another time I was out back of the bar breaking up a fight, some dude shot me in my left shoulder, still got pieces in me.

Soooo, what you done?

Constantine, I am doing well these days other than th ehigh cost of feed for me cows and cant get em in to butcher till janurary

Still does not relate to the OP. Maybe you want to brag on how tough you are, but the situation the OP described warranted caution. Ridiculing a 17 yr old for being cautious is uncalled for. Being tough does not mean you should be careless. And being cautious does not mean you are weak. The OP did the right thing not to open the door.

Please try to stay on topic of the OP and not prattle on about your bouncer days. The OP was not at a bar and being paid to handle troublemakers..
