held at gunpoint.
fuckers stole my friendīs car (2002 Fiat Brava), my friendīs cellphone, his girlfriendīs purse (with cellphone), my girlfriendīs purse (with wallet and cellphone), and nothing from me.

iīm still fucking scared.
it was 7pm, and it was RIGHT IN FRONT of the building where i live. The sons of bitches even saw where i leave, beause they saw me leaving the building, and when i opened the door of my friendīs car to go into, i was pushed back, when i turned to look, i just see the gun right on my chest, i turned slowly, and saw a guy behind my girlfriend with a gun, while other was jacking the driverīs seat.

how the hell do i not feel affraid after this ?

i already cancelled the bank cards (that was inside my girlfriendīs purse), need to go to the bank and ask for another one.

but at least noone got hurt, no one reacted to them, so they went without shooting or hitting anyone.

Not quite the same thing happened to me many years ago, but it was still scary.

After the event, I went to the local pawn shop, bought a gun, took the required courses in the proper use of a gun, the ngot a license to carry the weapon on me in public.

The assholes that robbed you are really cowards, and they go after what they perceive to be easy marks. Showcase the heat and they will give you a wide berth, because they don't want to engage anyone that will be able to fight back.

Well all i see lost here is a couple dignities... the brava and cellphones are good riddance. Maybe a little sorrow for the wallet but it wasn't yours so no biggy. But yes that is something i hope never happens to me, i think i would freak out and get shot

No need to die for anything material.

Are you in Brazil or was this in Europe?

In this fucking country, not getting killed on a robbery is already a strike of good fortune.

I know it's fucked up right now, and nothing can be said to easen the pain, but hang in there, time heals you know. Take some time, but try not to shut yourself from the world, there are still some decent people in it.

That's crazy, man. As paranoid as I am, I'd be moving out of that place as soon as possible. Did you call the police? I think they can track where the phones are if they are turned on. It's not as accurate as GPS, but still.

It's really unlikely they'll come back. A good thief knows to quit when they're ahead. If it was personal you would have recognized something about them. If you're going to rob or kill someone, the best victim is someone you don't know. If there's no connection betwen the suspect and the victim, it makes the suspect incredibly hard to find.
Since the sucessfully got what they want it's doubtful they'll risk coming back, especially if they think you're waiting for them.

That being said, it's time to change your habits. Park closer to the door, talk to your neighbors and form a watch group. Also keep your drapes closed so no one can see what's inside. Maybe aim your webcam out the window. Even if it's not post signs that the property is under survelliance. To be safe re-key the locks if any keys were stolen.

Putting a (fake) camera on the outside of the building in an obvious place is one way to make thieves look for easier target.

Sooner or later, you might get pretty angry at the mo'fo's, and you won't be able to take it out on them. My advice - buy a punchbag so that it doesn't get misdirected...

Kudos for staying cool - you couldn't have done anything differently to get better results.

Sorry about that.

Don't worry about the stuff & money, you are all fine and that's what counts. Unless it's a videogame, playing hero is the dumbest thing.

I don't know about your bandits, they sound calm and professional from your words. Crazy thieves are the most dangerous, because they lack the nerve and can make a mess out of nothing. Some years ago a friend of mine was threatened by a junkie waving a syringe in the air asking for money. My friend, seeing he could get infected with AIDS and heaven knows what else, dropped the wallet and run away before it hit the ground.

indeed, there were no financial losses.
The cellphones are all replaceable, and the car was insured, so no major losses there.
the documents though are a PAIN IN THE FUCKING ARSE to get them done again. Getting in huge lines (like i did yesterday) and get close to nothing done. Itīs all a bitch to get done. I already asked for a new bank card, should take 10 days to get done.

Well, we stayed cool, and tried not to move, but the fuckers were pretty nervous, which added a lot of stress on our side. Also, my friendīs girlfriend started crying from nervous, and one of the robbers, passed his hand on her face and said something like "donīt worry, hottie, noone will get hurt, if you donīt move or look up" (i donīt quite recall)

but yeah, itīs more a traumatic experience than anything.

oh and yeah, iīm in Brasil, not Europe (someone asked).
but i live on what is considered a pretty safe city and neighboor, but yeah, iīm still pretty jumpy from all that happened.

And don't stay angry about it. It's done and over and there is nothing that can be done. As all the others have said, the loss of material items is nothing compared the the safety/well being of you and your friends.

If it's any consolation, I know a priest who is from my hometown who is a missionary in your country. He's been mugged three times I believe and it doesn't deter him from doing what he does. I know your gut instinct is to wish you had a weapon and to attack back, but in the end, it's not worth putting yourself at risk let alone the others around you.

my feeling is of frustation.. i couldnīt have done anything, after all, someone could have gotten shot. But i donīt have the instinct to buy a weapon and try to defend myself. My instinct is to have more and more care to avoid ANY kind of risk, and i am locking and checking all my doors windows since it happened.

Also, they didnīt stole any keys from my place, so no need to re-key the locks.

But yeah, iīm starting to calm down..
just a bit jumpy of other people on the street.
