    First, I didn't reach for my pistol -- My hand was in my pocket as it pretty much always is.

    Second, I said he was older, not elderly. I am 38 -- I'm guessing he was 50-55.

    I do see the point here you are trying to make.

    Long ago in a state that was not Texas I was told you can use the force that is used against you - meaning if a knife is deadly force then you can use deadly force in self defense i.e. firearms.

    But, in this instance all you can do is hope in karma and if he would have attacked you maybe it would be better to have your hand on a stun gun or pepper spray cause a .357 against bare knuckles won't measure up to most juries and I wouldn't want to risk the outcome in a trial.
