    Carrying a gun always seems like a bad idea. I'm sure some of you know exactly how you would react, but I don't think most people can say how they would react if they got mugged, and if you aren't a badass, there is a decent chance that your own gun gets you killed.

    That's why it's bad to just get a carry permit and a gun. You should get training and practice before even attempting to apply for a permit.

    But I'll never get mugged because I have a beard.

    My rational, liberal sensibilities agree with you. Then my reptilian neanderthal brain considers stories like this, or the random families that are butchered by some psycho in their own home every few years. Yeah, maybe it'd get me killed, or maybe I'd just unload a clip into a deserving asshole (or just as likely, an undeserving guy with a mental health problem).

    Speaking as a guy who has dedicated his training and education to medicine, I get the rational idea that I'd probably do more harm than good.

    However, would like the option to protect myself and my family.

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    A mate of mine was throwing up in an alley when a guy tried to mug him.

    The mugger was like "Are you okay?"

    My friend was like "HUUALARGAGGGAUAGHAGHGHGARRAGH"

    The mugger waited for him to stop and went "give your wallet".

    My friend went "HUHUAHHHAGLLAAHHGHAHAUUHAHRGRHGAG" again.

    And then again.

    At which point the mugger got nervous about how long it was taking and obviously didn't want to get close to the guy projectile vomiting up 3 pitchers and a bottle of JD, so walked away.

    I think I would just throw my wallet at the dude and run. I am about as threatening as cotton fluff.

    That's actually what you should do. Throw it away from yourself and run the other way.

    I don't think the mugger's knife was the kind that shot bullets.

    i've spent a decent amount of time considering how likely death via stab would have been too

    it would've hurt and I would've lost a lot of blood but I'm thinking you could probably last til help arrived

    No! Only the heroes carry gun blades and they don't mug people!

    Not to be confused with the other classic mistake of starting a land war in Asia, or the other other classic mistake of winning a charity auction in SE++ for Child's Play in which some guy named Rainydoodle was supposed to make you a video.

    I got mugged once delivering pizzas. There were six dudes and when I got the pizzas out if the bag one dude king hit me while three others ran off with the pizza.

    I remember quite clearly the first punch and hitting the ground. Because as soon as I hit the ground what went through my brain was, "fuck this" and I got up and started swinging. I know I connected a few and the other dudes eventually ran off.

    Not even sure if fighting back was the best idea, probably was though as those three guys that stayed were probably not hanging around to chat.
