It's funny but almost a similar thing happened to me when I moved to Florida. I went to a mall in Palm Beach at night. I parked under a light. There were few cars around and I would soon find out why. As I got out of my car and opened the trunk to get a package I two black teenagers were running toward me. I had just come back from a firing range and so had my Glocks in the trunk. When they were about 25 feet away I saw that one had a tire iron in his hand. Since I did not have a flat tire I assumed they were up to no good. I pulled out one of my Glocks and turned around. They saw the gun and turned around, and ran back to where they started. The next day I enrolled in a class to get my CCL.
