I was threatened yesterday afternoon...

    My ex came over yesterday afternoon to see the dogs and discovered that I had changed the locks. (It was my attorney's advice.) After all, she had stolen my gun collection. She said some really filthy things, and then threatened me.
    She carries a .38 special snub and I expeced it to come out any second. In that split second, I decided that I would just take the bullet if she pulled out the snub. I would never point a gun at her.

    I've had my war.

    I don't know if I'd just "take a bullet." She might be accurate...

    Have you considered installing a video camera for those moments when she comes over? I'd run the show by a judge and request a a restraining order. I certainly wouldn't want someone packing a gun coming to visit that has a habit of getting nasty. What's to stop her from behaving like this with the rest of the family?

    If I was you I would look into getting a restraining order against her. If you don't sooner or later she will cause you more trouble, either legally or physically.

    Laura (That's the right name, isn't it?)

    My ex is a very accuate shot with a pistol or rifle. She's a "natural shot".
    I watched her put all five shots into an area the size of a man's fist at 75 feet. Yes--seventy five feet. And that was on her first trip to the range. No practice, no nothing.
    I've been shot before and it was..ah, unplesant. However, this woman lived happily with me for 26 years. It was a few months ago when she had "female" surgery that she turned into...this. My doctor said it was a "hormonal thing".
    No matter what, I could't shoot her.

    Pop- Yeah, you're right. I'm calling my attorney first thing tomorrow morning and asking him about an EOP. Doesn't help me today though.

    i dont blame you, i wouldnt want to shoot her either but if she pulled a gun on me a pistol whipping wouldnt be out of the question.

    Wow, sounds like you're in a pickle! Those "female surgeries" can change a woman. Has she tried medication to counter the imbalance? It's sad to see a marrage fall apart because of an operation.

    I hate restraining orders, but it sounds like you need one. Changing the lock was a good idea. If everything is secure, make yourself scarce to avoid confrontations until this blows over. Be careful mentioning guns around the police and lawyers, that always takes the conflict up a level or two. Remember, restraining orders and guns don't mix, you or your wife will lose them. Make sure she knows if she pulls one out it's jail time, even if it's just for show to gain leverage.

    Sounds to me like you might consider playing the woman's card and express your concern about her means and ability to use her (your) guns against you. At the very least they may be removed from her until the difficulty is over with.

    On another note, I feel your pain bud. I too have been on the short end of the "hormonal problem" stick. It's not pretty and it's not easy. It may even get worse, but there's light at the end of the tunnel for ya. Hang in there!

    Woman or not...ex wife or not...friend after all this time or not.....if my ex pulled a gun on me she'd be in for a long sore recovery.:D

    Del4: Her doctor gave her some hormone replacement patches. She'd put one on and be a different person two hours later. Far worse behavior than without a patch.

    K8ysv: Thanks for the support.

    Navajo: Well, you may be right but the thought of shooting her makes my stomach roll.

    Again, I've had my war. Three tours worth.

    Perhaps some hollow points filled with estrogen?

    You could consider it a "booster shot". :what:

    Seriously, kudo's to you sir for not stooping to her level and for maintaining a cool head.

    I laid in bed last and listened to the phone ring. My "call waiting" said it was her. I didn't answer. Finally, I got up and turned off the ringers. I could STILL hear the upatairs phone. I put in an earplug. (I only need one because I'm completely deaf on the right side.) It takes a very crazy person to forgo sleep just to ring your phone all night long.

    Blues: Thank you for the joke. You could be right. However, I have a very difficult time laughing when my life is in danger.

    Yesterdaysyouth: You could be right too.
    A friend told me yesterday that he wants to divorce his wife (She's "running around" on him) and move to Florida and open a new gunshop. He asked me if I would be interested in being his partner. Naturally, I said "YES".

    Chance favors the prepared mind.

    If she's mentally unstable, her CCW needs to be yanked before she loses it completely and shoots either you or some guy in a parking lot that pissed her off.

    I'd get the restraining order and if she violates it, have her arrested.

    Plenty of women in my family had operations but as my mother was an RN for many years -- I know of none that change a person this drastically, except that she must have been unbalanced for many years. If you don't mind taking a bullet -- just consider, would you mind if you took a bullet in front of your children or grand kids? What a memory they'll have....:eek:

    It's admirable that you wouldn't want to hurt her but if she's willing to hurt you, you have a responsibity to yourself and your loved ones to protect yourself. If she's sick, she's all the more dangerous. Some of the worst domestic crimes by women have occured because people noticed they weren't quite right and did nothing. Bad move. I'd take your friend up on his offer to open up shop in Flordia -- say nothing except to those that won't blab to her and get a restraining order in the meantime to keep her at bay. God help you if she moves to Florida to be near you. Someone acts like this...stalking isn't out of the question.

    Won't a restraining order void her CCW to begin with?

    Glocksman: I hate to do it, but I think I've got to.
    I have a Bonanza on stand-by. If worse comes to worse, I can fly from Louisville to Nashville in 43 minutes or get to Florida in 5 hours. I have friends who'll hide and protect me in both places. I really wanted my collection back before "The Great Escape".
    Sheesh, I just had to take a pain pill. When I'm worried, my back and hip just KILL me. I have canes stashed around EVERYWHERE. It formally was pistols, before she stole them all. The only guns I have left are the Kahr PM9 on my hip, a Colt .22 that my father gave me about a hundred years ago when I was 17, and a Marlin Papoose that was in my flight bag. See, if I'm forced down again, I want a rifle. (Even if it's just a .22) I'm not spending another long cold night with nothing but a Swiss Army Knife!

    Like that would really stop her from carrying? No permit? Doubt it...

    You know Kentucky, what worries me is that I don't think your law officers are taking this seriously just because of your gender. It's times like these, I'd advise a person to move to Quincy, Massachusetts -- they're dead serious about restraining orders and protecting those at risk -- men and women. It's too bad more cities and states aren't as strict. Obviously, Massachusetts isn't an option I'm sure you'd want to take so I'd advise you to move to Florida as soon as possible. It sounds like you're in a lot of danger where you're not even being protected by police.
