4. Oh yeah. If you're going to flash a weapon like that, you need to show the finger.

3. So THAT's what those guns are used for.

In this case, I approve.

5. Exactly. He didn't fire it (didn't have to anyway) and there's no indication it was loaded.

 

When I was young and stupid (okay, maybe I'm still stupid, but you get the point), I had a ring-cap gun that looked VERY real. That was before you had to have an orange tip on them. Some asswipe was being beyond obnoxious. Note: I was in my '68 Galaxie and could easily have blown him off the road. I stopped at a light and he pulled up next to me. The passenger started yelling obscenities (apparently I wasn't speeding enough). I watched the opposite traffic light and just before I got the green I just held up the handgun and waved it. Then I took off at nowhere near the possible acceleration I had available to me. The road narrowed to one lane and they illegally passed me. What they didn't know was that I knew the roads better. I skidded to a stop, threw it in reverse, and then dove off onto a little known access road to get under the highway. I was home five minutes later and never saw them again, but it still amuses me. Today it would probably get me shot.
