Guns for this situation.. Who need courage when you have a gun.
"I have a gun. No one will bother me anymore because I have this" Guns give cowards balls - dude, you don't need a shotgun to make people pay attention to you.
Mr. Big muscles likely just wanted to feel like a big man by bossing someone smaller who looked like they would'nt (and physically couldn't) put up a fight. Man, don't you know Martial arts? Do you know it well enough so he couldn't land a blow anyways even if he wanted to?
Hit the weights in the gym, seriously. In High school I was short and pudgy and had to get out of everyones way. I hit the gym and I am pretty lean and muscular now, and now no one bothers me. Do you think that fella would have bothered you if you looked like you wouldn't put up with crap like that? No likely. Sounds more like an attitude change and a gym membership would do you better than a double barrel. A gun wont stop people from walking all over you. YOU need to stop people from walking all over you. And thats that.They are good for taking those people out, but they wont prevent these things from happening.
that makes no logic
I didn't mean to say that having a piece on you is a substitute to knowing how to handle yourself. I just meant that when some jack*** is threatening to harm you and your loved ones, sometimes you can't always outmuscle them. Remember, there is always someone out there that can whip you. It doesn't matter how much you hit the gym or know karate or think you are untouchable. An attitude change would help, but likewise it would also help the clown that was honking at him. If I were in his situation my first instinct wouldn't be to grab my piece. I would ignore his honking and take my time to pump my gas. THEN if he had a problem and looked like he was going to roid-rage my face into pulp, I would have no qualms about using whatever means necessary for survival. Guns don't just give cowards balls, they give the underdog an upper-hand. I'd rather be called a coward with both my legs intact, then to be "courageous" and get jumped when I knew I was going up against my odds (and end up in the hospital). lol, getting beaten up doesn't mean you have courage.
he was threatening to harm me, idk bout my loved one. the only time i would EVER pull out a gun is in a situation that involved danger.
I practice on my own which isnt enough. I know enough to defend myself against my 6'3 buddy but thats also in a controlled enviroment. And with certain limitations.
Its not the attention i want but more the lack of...make sense? As to the weights i probably should but homework is a pain and i need to graduate on time to...well its kinda personal but hw is important. I would love to go to a M/A school but same situation. i have weights but the ones i made probably wony benefit me much...
Instead of pulling out a gun, avoid the situation by not flipping off the jerk. It's like the old saying about getting in an argument with an idiot. First they drag you down to their level and then they beat you with experience.

Homework is very important but just starting out you would'nt be lifting for very long at all because those guys who work out an hour and a half need to work out that long because as you get better you need longer and more complex training. Just starting out, 45 minutes tops -likely less- three days a week isnt a bad start if you do the right workouts. Most people spend more time watching TV. Weightlifting does'nt need to be an everyday thing.
that makes no logic
I think you're missing the point. Working out is good, regardless of the reason, but the PROBLEM is not that you're a skinny weakling or you don't have a gun. The problem is that you started this when you flipped him off. He honked is horn. That is pretty normal. You flipped him off. There's a difference.
It's like poking a dog with a stick, then complaining when it bites.
i use resistance bands a couple times a week........not even terribly seriously and i have already gained back the muscle i lost after switching jobs from hauling furniture to running printing presses 6 years ago..........if yah want perfect definition yah need proper diet and constant exercize.....if all yah want is more practical working muscle that doesnt take alot of work, especially on your arms.......main thing to keep in mind is your body gets used to a routine, and once it gets used t it you start loosing ground.......dont do the same workout over and over........mix it up on a regular basis...........
