On my way to work and just got a gun pulled on me. Called 911 and followed until I lost him. Going to pull video when I get to work. Freakin crazies.

sorry that happen to you. I had a few encounters on car rallies where someone pulled a gun out on the group. It not a good feeling at all because you feel completely powerless.

I teach aggressive retreat. Last thing you want to do is escalate a situation.

Holy Crap!
Yeah, I'm not sure I'd have followed him, at least not further than it took to get an ID. I don't know the circumstances though so waiting for the video.

Gosh DANGET. Stupid blackvue dashcam hasn't been recording for 3 days. Despite the dashcam LEDs showing powered on and recording lights. You have no idea how ticked off I am.

No I couldn't get the guys plate because he was too far away. When I realized what had happened, I slowed down to follow him as he immediately took an exit off the free way. So I slowed down, waited for it to clear, then drove over the dirt to get to the exit ramp and follow him. He saw I was following and took off. Lots of cars around made it a little unsafe for me to go as fast as I would have liked to. Speed isn't the issue, but I didn't want to cause any accidents trying to catch up.

And BlackVue, they can suck it. Worthless POS camera. If the lights say recording and the dashcam says "BlackVue for your safety. Exiting parking mode". It should be recording, right? Well nah. Camera is a total POS. I am super annoyed. You have no idea how bad I wanted to have a chance to get this psychopath arrested for assault with a deadly weapon (pointing a gun at me). I would have showed up in court and seen it through to the end.

I carry too, matter of fact I had two with me. One on me, and one in my vehicle. But escalating isn't what I would want either. I didn't follow for a confrontation, I followed to try and get a plate. It's funny, the thought of me being armed never even crossed my mind. That's a good thing, I think, as it shows that under duress I don't have violent tendencies.

Oh, and by the way, BlackVue is a POS. AHHHH. Hate these dang cameras.

Oh man, glad you’re okay! That really sucks about the dashcam! These things have to be reliable... I just had an A119s fail on me this weekend (after my A119 got bricked) and this is getting annoying...

Yep. No videos at all for the 9th or 10th, despite me driving both days.

I'm glad things didn't get worse too. I don't get people like this guy. How crazy and psychopathic do you have to be to pull a gun and point it at someone.

Yeah, he was road raging. I was totally chill, wasn't having any issues at all. He came up really fast from the back in his black Ford ST racer and was two lanes over to the left, but apparently was doing maybe PSL +30 while I was doing the PSL. I had my signal on and did a 5-6 second lane change after waiting 3 seconds and making sure it was clear. He I think got upset because I think he was trying to go diagonally from the left to the right crossing like 3 lanes at a time, to get around a car in front of him. I wasn't trying to beat him or anything. He just was crazy. So he ends up going in front of me and then coming into my lane and hitting the brakes hard, which I need to point out there was tons of distance for him to pass me in the left lane between him and the car in front of him in that lane, so I really didn't "cut him off". But I suppose when you don't have a good brain in your head and are going Traffic +30 and crossing 3 lanes in a single swoop, what more can be expected of you? So after he's done brake checking me he moves to the right, slows down to get besides me, pulls a silver pistol on me, and then takes the exit ramp right there.

Glad your ok.

Yeah the Blackvue's are completely useless. I don't know how many times I've had an EPIC SAVE or just a general clip I wanna reflect on, but the SD is either curropt or there's no volume. I literally have to format every few days with every SD I've used. For the nearly $500 price tag I paid for it, I really expected more.

I'm glad to hear you're safe though, unfortunately we can't carry in Canada and this is something that has always scared me..

Yeah I learned the hard way myself. Cheap cards = no video in a short period of time.

What SD cards have you used? I've been lucky that mine doesn't need formatting every few days or being corrupt or missing files.
