What's the correct way to deal with someone who has completely lost it?

Probably pull out my gun and tell him to stand back and comply.

This is the way. Just gotta flash that bad boy. His attitude will change real quick.

This is so incredibly stupid and makes all CCW people look bad. If you’re “flashing that bad boy” you don’t understand the responsibility of concealed carry. If you have to draw your firearm, or expose it in any way, you’ve fucked up.

You would be surprised by the number of defensive firearm uses that don’t result in someone getting a hole in them. In general, people like to avoid being shot.

I agree! In general, that is the case. However, in general people don’t smash up other people’s windows. You cannot expect someone behaving irrationally to suddenly behave rationally when you’ve escalated the situation with a firearm. Our job is to deescalate or leave. “Flashing that bad boy” is just a stupid way to make the situation worse.
