In the immortal words of Stryfe....

"a guy in a gas mask carrying a suppressed pistol through the mall what would you do?"

We saw the reaction of the screaming sheeple in last nights episode of 24, acting like a bunch of no-brain idiots. But in reality, if you were in the mall, or a grocery store, or at a sporting event, etc., what would be your immediate reaction to seeing a guy in a gas mask running down the hallway, carrying a suppressed pistol, yelling "Get Out" - - what would you do?

Um...get out?

I think I would listen to him.

Draw Down!!

Hah! I lauged my ass off at that.

"Please evacuate the mall in a safe and orderly fashion", the friendly PA system says.


Jack walks out with a gasmask and a gun and doesn't have to say a word and that place is empty.

Me? I'd run. Good guy or bad, there's a reason he's wearing a mask, and if he, for some reason, thinks he needs on, I want one too or I want the hell out of there. I don't think this is a matter of sheeple-ness so much as a matter of smart decisions.

Shoot him and take his gas mask and suppressed pistol.

Not go to the mall. Get out or get my kids behind some sort of cover. What the guy does next will tell me whether I pull my handgun and drop him or not.

M-m-m-make like a t-t-tree and GET THE FUCK OUT!

Yea, This mall didn't have what I'm looking for.

I'm leaving.

Ask him what his handle is on ARFCOM. You never know he might be one of us.

who's Jack
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 5:38:11 AM EDT
I never go to the mall.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 5:38:37 AM EDT
hard to say. I would probably shoot the pistol out of his hand. take his mask and then sell the pistol on ebay pawn shop

Oh, back on topic. After taking a second to figure out what kind of gun he is carrying and how cool it would be if I had a silencer, reality would set in and I would GTFO.

Cower in the fetal position and shit myself uncontrollably.

Scream like a child and wet myself until my two year old slapped me and told me to run.

What? That's not a plan?

­


Seriously? Well, I get the fuck out. I'm not the mall avenger so I'll get my family safe and then decide what to do from there. If he's shooting people I may act and then get the fuck out but if not, I'm just going to go and call the cops.

Gimme 3 steps, gimmee 3 steps,Mister. Gimmee 3 steps for the door. Gimmee 3 steps, gimmee 3 steps, Mister, and you won't see me no more.

Get the Fuck Out!


Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:16:07 AM EDT
My general philosophy is, gas mask or not, suppressed pistol or not, if someone is suggesting a course of action that does not put me or mine in greater danger, and potentially takes us out of harms way, I'm going to go with it. There's a difference between being told to evacuate and being lead to a secondary crime scene. This is the kind of situation where you don your best sheepleflage and go out with everyone else. Sure, there's still a risk of something bad happening outside, but that's why you don't lead the group.

Luck favors the prepared. If you don't have any idea what you would do in a weird situation, you're likely going to freeze. Fight or flight response is a myth. Most people confronted with something totally unexpected will freeze up. If you're trying to avoid being noticed by animals that sense movement, that may be a good idea. If you're confronted with someone hunting people, you're a stationary target. Generally, i would not expect many animal related threats in a mall.

Sure, prep is good. I'm not saying it isn't. It's just I have to listen to the 24 crap in the office all day long today so I think it's funny.

You need to re-read the question. No one asked anything about your typical first date.

I avoid shopping malls like the plague, but if I were to find myself in that situation, I would take the guys advice and leave immediately.

Hell, with my track record if that's all that happened on a first date I'd consider it a phenomenal success.

Everyone here doesn't have a gas mask in their vehicles? Go get yours and come back, draw down, and help! What happened to the American spirit of helping others in need?

Make sure you have your atropene with you too! You know, that GW1 surplus stuff...

Look for the nearest Fire Corridor and exit stage Left/Right
