If someone stops short in front of me and GETS OUT... I'm hitting "Reverse" or going around as quickly as possible. I'm not sticking around to see what happens next.

Precisely! Avoid, evade, escape is always my first plan unless cornered, especially when at the wheel of a several thousand pound weapon.

There will be times where you won't have that option because of cars all around you

Obviously. Whether that was the case here, or not, was not revealed by the story.

So, yeah... obviously, if I CAN get away (escape / evade), that's my FIRST choice. If I'm stuck, then I'm stuck. But, I would not rule out ramming the car in front of me (or even behind me) to make room to drive away. If lives are on the line, some damaged cars are worth it.

What the heck is a dash compartment? Is that the PC name for glove compartments?

So, that brings us to a hypothetical defense situation. Say, if your stuck where you are, for the sake of argument and this guy jambs brakes, comes to your car , yells a bit and says " I should kill you, then walks back to his vehicle, then comes back toward you, apparently with nothing in his hands. What would be your response ?? I know what I would do but am curious to other opinions.

Ol Grady Judd (sheriff of Polk) is pretty clear that he likes his citizens armed!

“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one. Become proficient. Get a concealed firearms license and carry it. And if you need to shoot someone, shoot them a lot.” -Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

Really, I love this guy!
