    Not saying had I been in that situation, I would have done NOTHING hoping to live...can't say. Never been shot at by anything of high caliber than a BB gun, lol. I imagine, had I been there, so, too, would my wife, and MY instinct would have been to lay on the floor, and make my wife do the same. Let him shoot at the panicky people running for the exits...but who knows. Certainly not me. ****, I can't even get my mind wrapped around what a possible motive could be for this.
    Even if your family is sitting right next to you, while the rounds are flying?

    So you would choose your life over your child's? Because you can read all over the world about the courageous sacrifices parents have made, including giving up their own lives, to save their kids'.

    Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a strange way to admit to having intimate knowledge on the size of countless penises.

    I was sitting next to an attorney who is also a DEA S/A today at a CLE seminar and he noted to me-some of my friends wonder why I carry at movie theaters, malls and churches. I said i'm going to start carrying more-i normally only carry when I am traveling on the interstate in remote areas, bad areas or very late at night.

    no more.

    same with my wife who just became a certified SW armorer yesterday.

    ROFL! Actually it was an industrial propane tank with a sheered off regulator, around 1500 lbs. Worth and basically enough to take out half a city block. I would crap my pants if I ended up with a Miss. woman......j/k.

    Simply put, I perceive THAT as being OUR best ticket for survival, not me going Rambo trying to kill the guy shooting, in a room in which I can barely see my hand in front of my face. This kid was spraying bullets, buddy. Best way to avoid getting hit by one is to go where he is least likely to be spraying, which is DOWN.

    My child would never be there. She is 3.


    So, yes, I would absolutely take the option that would be MOST likely to result in my coming to see here again.

    There is no real good option in a theater, hard floors so bullets will be ricocheting, plastic seatbacks so little resistance to even low velocity rounds, if he's in the lower decks of seats he can possibly get a lucky shot on someone laying in a higher row. There are so many logistical problems that survival is already iffy.
