    So my wife stopped in Union City to pick up something I left at the car dealership. She texts me. "There were just gunshots but we are ok."

    Then she calls me, said she was turning around in QT and somebody started shooting. She left. I asked if she had called 911. "Not yet."

    Hang up and call 911!

    She then saw a car driving erratically and reported that to the police, too. She is out of there and back on the interstate . . .

    There were a couple of news reports in the past couple of days about gas station shootings.

    Driving in crime-ridden south Fulton county, the safest vehicle is:

    1- A HUMVEE with an M2 .50 caliber, but,

    if you want to be more discreet,

    2- the Dillon Tacticle Vehicle with a GE 7.62 mm Gatling gun that pops out of the moonroof.

    Glad to hear that she is ok. There was quite a bit of crime when I left the dealership in Union City 19 years ago. I don't miss working there.

    Kinda tough if you're driving alone. Unless you want to make an "Alamo Defense." :mrgreen:

    My teenage son, who saw one of the men with a gun, seems more impressed now that this is where I used to be a police officer.

    I could be on e and I'd push the car to the next exit rather than stop in union city.

    Glad she is safe! Avoiding that area in the future would seem prudent.

    M&P Shield in 9 mm.

    Sheriff Oconee would approve


    But she did not even look. When the shooting started, she drove swiftly for an exit and left without even glancing to see what was happening. She said all she could think of was getting our children out of there.

    I bought my truck there in February. Had 2 guns and 3 reloads on me. The gas station across from don Jackson was sketchy as hell, and I was glad to be armed and driving a vehicle with no thug appeal.

    I drive through that area frequently on the way to and from Fayetteville and family. Armed is the rule, never the exception.

    Union City has gotten pretty bad. North Fayetteville is not much better.

    Glad your wife was OK. She did the right thing... drove away and called the COPS.

    I always pack when I go to downtown ATL and those areas.

    Changing topic for reading pleasure... There was one time I got lost in the south Ikea area. I stopped at this stop light and next thing I knew, a bunch of thugs (males and females) just crossed over my car... literally climbed over the hood of my car and acted like nothing happened.

    Was your car in the crosswalk? Just curious.
