Funny enough, I was held at gunpoint, except the kid holding the gun was on a bike.If the gun had a red cap on the muzzle I wouldn't have given him the bike and I would have have beaten him down with a rock or something, knowing I wouldn't get shot.
The gun was a Beretta pistol, identical to this
It was dark out, and I considered that the gun might be a fake (although I lived in New Orleans, so I doubt that) or I could just have knocked the kid down since he was on a bike.
The only downside if I was wrong is I would have a bullet penetrate my skin, so I gave him my stuff.
Afterwards I heard plenty of stories about taking guns away, but since I am still telling my story, I will always think I did the right thing.
P.S. The cops caught a kid a few hours later. It was not the same kid, but I think it was the same bike.
