    Jeremy, sorry this happened to you. People are really jerks, period. And for him to threaten your life by sicking his 2 large dogs on you because he door dinged you is ridiculous. I can't even imagine how pissed I would have been. Glad you got his insurance and everything will probably be worked out for you.

    This is exactly why I use my handicap placard everywhere I go. My wife would rather me leave the handicap space open for some really old messed up person, but I love my truck too much to park amongst the riffraff.

    I got door dinged at a bank parking lot a couple months ago. I was in my truck when the guy nailed my bed with his door. I was on the phone at the time but did make a few exchanges with my hands. The guy didn't care just went inside. When I went inside turned out he was an employee and I quickly made sure to tell a manager about his employee's door opening skills. I didn't car or have time to make a big deal about it. But your situation sounds alot worse. Mine was black on black car contact and my truck was so muddy I think the guys car got more damage than I did.

    I feel your pain. 2 weeks ago we had 3 days of high winds and I got dinged in the chiropractors parking lot. POS impala parked cockeyed in the spot next to me at the end of the lot, when I got there the closest vehicle was 3 stalls away. Unfortunately I didn't notice the ding until I was back at work. Perfect 'L' shaped crease, 1/8" deep and white paint center of the pillar right behind the rear door. Fortunately a PDR tech got it almost totally out, just a small paint blemish is left from the metal being stressed. It's too bad people can't own up to damaging another's property. I would have been far less pissed off had someone come and found me and taken responsibility or left a note with contact info instead of finding it after the fact and having no recourse. $75 later the ding is gone but I haven't let it go, so the girls at the chiropractors office are keeping their eyes out for a white Impala for me. I'm with you on the CC too. It's bad enough that people don't care about the belongings of others, but to react that way after being asked to own up to the mistake and do the right thing and instead take a threatening stance is exactly why I carry.

    And whatever happened to owning up to your mistake like a man when you get called out! These days people just get pissed and act stupid.

    The only reason I have S/S running boards is to help try and mitigate/prevent door dings. I think it does help. My recent install of the TT 3/1 lift and a little taller tires also seems to help. I also try and park far enough away that the lazy non caring "folks" would not dream of walking that long of a distance. I like the excersise.

    So many people are totally clueless and careless and don't give a dam about others.

    I'm sure most guys on this forum (which from what I can tell, the majority are gun owners) feel as you do. Guns are a last resort, but when you have guys like this assbag out there in droves, that deliver threats like that, it's a good deterrent to fall back on in situations where a witness and a cool head can't prevail.

    Tacogrande, if it helps, I used some flitz to remove the white paint from mine and went over it with some finishing compound. That got rid of the scuff. The PDR guy that removed the dent got the dent all but completely gone and mine was pretty deeply creased. $75 PDR vs my $250 deductible that goes against collision and he came to my shop to do it. I just shopped around for a reputable guy in my area and am very happy with the results considering what it looked like.

    They don't call him Law for nuthin'! I would never pull a concealed weapon unless I felt threatened, had no recourse, and intended to use it. Our local concealed carry class simplified the equation for us: Does the person have the opportunity to do you or someone else bodily harm? Does the individual have the means to do you or someone else bodily harm? I don't know how big this asshat's dogs were but I would feel threatened if he told me he was going to sick them on me. That said, I would stay close to my weapon in that situation.

    When I was issued my cc, the judge that signed it said don't ever draw your weapon unless you plan on aiming it, and don't ever aim it at someone unless you intend to kill them.

    If this jackass opened his door to "let his dogs out", if returning to my vehicle wasn't possible only then I'd draw. A trip to the body shop isn't worth the legal hassle of discharging your weapon even if you're in the right and justified.

    Sorry you had to go through that man. People are assholes.

    So, this situation turned much for the worse. But is anyone else surprised someone called 911 over a door ding?

    Yep and i dont regret my choice one bit. I suspect that if i had not, the guy would have still driven off without giving me any info at all and i would be the one getting screwed. Now he is the one dealing with a legal issue! Did you not read why my decision to call?

    I don't fault the OP one little bit. Especially since he was threatened by the jackass who threatened to sick his dogs on him.....

    Agreed. The OP acted reasonably. And kept a cool head. If the offender flat out refuses to give you info, or tries to flee the scene of an accident you should absolutely contact *law enforcement* regardless of how small. I take care of my stuff and treat people well. I'm not gonna bankroll assholes.

    Agreed as well. I work very hard to have a few nice things and I'll be the first to admit that I'm obsessive about my truck. I'm also a responsible, insured adult who has some respect for others and their property and would own up to damaging another's vehicle. I expect the same from others in return so when someone immediately turns confrontational I'm not going to back down.

    Honestly I first thought why am I calling cops ...I just had a bad feeling with how junky the other truck was and I always go with my gut feeling...always.

    It amazes me how far people go out of their way to mess up other's stuff. Literally the same thing happened to my fiancée's cx5 and my truck, both while at Lowe's. I didn't call the cops but both times I sat there and waited. I was lucky enough that they both had family with them and acted all sorry about it. Got both cars fixed but man, I was livid. If someone parks far away, don't park next to them. How hard is it?

    Now that I think about it, a lot of scrapes and dings take place on Lowe's parking lots. My last minor incident also took place at out local Lowe's but I didn't get too bent out of shape because it was my old Ford F150....Now, if it had been my Tundra, it would have been a different situation.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I still had paper tags on my truck when mine happened. Probably saw it was brand new and did it on purpose. No other reason to park close enough to someone to give them a door ding in an empty parking lot.
