    Texas of course
    I would have drawn and shot in fear of my life. How stupid can people be???

    YouTube - What Would You Do If ? - Elevator - ( David Spates )

    If someone shot this guy dead I can't possibly see any DA in the country prosecuting it. Especially with the video evidence of him chasing people with a freaking machete!!!

    Honestly, he probably would have caught me off guard and I would have run, LOL.

    I'm usually in la la land on elevators.

    Would have scared the sheet out of me. I bet he wouldn't be doing that for very long if he had been doing it in Texas.

    The stupidity of some people baffles me. I wonder if he even realized he could have gotten shot?

    I think it's most likely all the other guys were friends of his. I kind of doubt he just went into public and randomly did that to people. You could clearly see that any of the guys pressing the button to the elevator would have easily seen him, as in there is no possible way he was hiding behind that 1 foot corner. ;)

    If that situation were real, what I would like to think I would do is the support hand flies up to sacrifice itself unless I'm able to deflect the slash, while simultaneously moving off the line and primary hand drawing the gun. No shots to the body, mag dump to the face. At that range, body shots are too slow to disable, and a head shot is the only thing that can nearly instantaneously stop someone when done correctly. In reality though, I would most likely jump up and scream like a little girl, probably piss myself, and maybe blow a hole through the floor as I try to draw with my finger on the trigger, and the crime scene techs would probably spend a decade trying to figure out how I fired 25 times (single stack), including 2 reloads, without hitting a damn thing even at 3 feet. :rofl: lol
