Remember the story of the big bully who mastered unassisted human flight after picking on the wrong guy last month?

The victim in this incident contacted us.

Well, his name’s Jack and here’s his story.  It all began with an email:

First off I would like to say I’m not a “little guy” that fat [fellow] was just giant so I looked small.  I’m 5”10.  I just wanted to let you know that it was ruled self defense & to give you any information you would like. I also have 30sec of video that is cut from the beginning of the video that shows how it started.

That got our attention.  So we traded emails and he sent his story.  There’s a lot to be learned for all of us.  Jack did a VERY good job defending himself in far from ideal conditions.

As Paul Harvey would say, here’s the rest of the story (edited slightly for readability):

The incident happened in Pueblo West, CO right outside a dispensary (“The Dispo”).  The full video (above, linked to Rumble) shows how it started.
The owner of the car had some $4K rims on a crappy little Honda.  This big guy saw them and when the guy passed by us he was smiling at the rims.   I commented, “You like the rims, Homie?”  For whatever reason, that set the dude off.  As you can see, he came straight to my car door yelling all aggressively.
The video kind of speaks for itself with what happens after that.
I am a HUGE Active Self Protection fan (on YouTube) and I’ve been watching his videos for years.
In fact, I used one of the techniques he talks about in his videos. When my attacker went for my gun, I fell back into my car in an effort to pull away to retain my gun.  Then I had to shoot with my elbows out and my gun back against my chest in order to defend myself.   If I hadn’t trained and practiced that I probably wouldn’t be here today.  I had bruises on my chest for a month.
This is the only post or article I ever saw about it:
Another thing I can share that isn’t in any report or video.  The cops showed up, as you might expect.  Then my attacker’s brother showed up not even 5 minutes after all the cops got there.  He brought an assault rifle and it took five cops to restrain him.
After that they took me to the station & talked to me for a few hours while I explain what happened.  My lawyer took care of everything and the DA ruled it self-defense after that.
First rule of self-defense:  Have a gun.
Train with it.  Practice.  And practice avoidance, and deescalation.  But when all that fails, have that gun and know how to use it.

  1. Does this make me fitst to comment on GSL 2.0?
    Good job, Jack! Glad you’re okay. That guy was huge! He should have practiced kindness instead and he would be alive today!

  2. Welcome back! We’ve missed you.
    Did he tell you if he had insurance? He had a lawyer on it pretty quick. He doesn’t look like he’s flush with cash, though I could be wrong there.
