Thanks for explaining @Dan17!
I’ve been in one of those - in a non-emergency type situation at a concert. I was picked up and moved across the entire stadium by pure body pressure. I knew what I was in for when I went to the concert (I was much younger).
I don’t know if I’d shoot in that type of situation now - I don’t know if I’d be able to get to my weapon. I think the best means of self-defense in this type of situation is to avoid them if at all possible. If you’re crushed under or between people, getting to your firearm may be very difficult and I’d rather not pull a knife in such close quarters.
I’d disagree with that given the examples @Dan17 stated, @WildRose. If there’s a flash mob you could very easily be caught up in it and carried away by it, especially if you have little ones with you or can’t move quickly.
I’m going to have to think about that situation some more. Interesting perspective, @Dan17. I’m glad you brought it up. Please remember text doesn’t always come across right the first time, follow up questions are welcome.
