This happened to my nephew as he was leaving the Point of the Mountain Prison in Utah. He was going to the range to practice to qualify for his test to become a police officer. If not for already having his conceal carry permit he might not be alive. He had stopped at a grocery store and was going back out to his vehicle when 2 guys jumped him. He was still in his uniform and these 2 had been released from prison 4 and 6 months before. They got him pretty good before he broke free enough to get into his vehicle and get his gun. Whole different ball game then. He suffered a broken finger and a bruised and bloody face and hand.
