Just out of curiousity, op, was the guy bigger than you were by quite a bit? If it wasn't because of that it was because he had his friend there with him, so it's just a typical person trying to be tough.
Similar height but maybe a bit more built. His friend was 6 inches taller than him and the girl was average height. He was just testing me, I know. I've been tested before at the bars. Same situation about two years ago and there again it was a team-up situation.
I wish the law didn't go after people who need to defend themselves. I'd like to equip myself better but am also afraid that I'll be going to jail if I need to use violence against someone else. I trained martial arts for a short while and learned some legitimately lethal moves but being outnumbered sucks no matter what and I've not trained in a while (couldn't afford it anymore).
3 people = 12 attacking limbs, 1 person = 4 attacking limbs.
3 people = 3 weapons, 1 person = 1 weapon.
If I got to my truck though, and really lost all sense of rational thinking, it could get ugly. Just sucks that defense is such a gray area. In reality, he'd escalated it to a point where force could've been justifiably used by me IMO. Not lethal force mind you, but some force.
