So, I'm a Cable Tech, and was on a job tonight in a not great part of town. Thought I was done but then realized I wasn't. Luckily, I had all my tools in the truck when I heard the shots. Sounded like a nine - and from not far away. I heard 3 to 5 that seemed like a block or two away. Then they got louder. I looked toward where they were coming from and saw the muzzle flash of three shots. I was hauling *** around the truck at this point. A pause in fire made me run into the customer's home (block with brick face). My CC was in the truck. I debated for about 2 tenths of a second about going for it before I ran like a little girl for the house because the truck was locked and the time it would take seemed like a bad idea. My carry wasn't on me because I strip everything I don't need off before I climb the pole. The shooter was (Thank you Google Earth) ~260' from me and not shooting in my direction, but about 70 degrees off. Less than 5 minutes later I was away from the scene. The customer watched me (from inside) get to my truck and I drove away with my traffic cones in the passenger seat. Happened around 8pm EST. Still a bit wound up. The bourbon was supposed to help me relax. I called 911 as I was driving away to report it. I cannot identify anyone. I have no idea if anyone was hurt. My hands didn't start shaking until I was away. Took them a while to stop once they did though. Initial thoughts: An LCP at that range is less than useless. The gun may do it but this shooter won't. With a tool belt and safety belt on, there's no effective way to carry anything useful. What's the cost factor in open carrying a C-130 gunship? Your thoughts?
