    Yes I definitely agree. If you are going to carry, you need accept the responsibility that you may end up taking a life even if it means you saved one or two or three or...

    The way I see it if you make the choice to shoot to wound you are still choosing to use deadly force. When choosing to carry a gun for protection you need to make the choice to stop the threat.

    In North Carolina, which is a "Stand Your Ground" state, there are four conditions that all must be present to justify use of Deadly Force in self-defense:

    •There must be an real and immediate threat of death, serious injury, or sexual assault such that a normal person believes Deadly Force is necessary.
    •The threat must be otherwise unavoidable.
    •You cannot instigate the dispute: "If you start a fight, you lose your rights."
    •You cannot use excessive force.

    And that's the way it is here in NC!

    Is she really ready?

    If your fiancee is not yet emotionally ready to accept the fact that she may have to take another persons life then she she is not ready to carry at this time.

    Suppose she did shoot to wound and hit their femoral artery, the BG bleeds out and dies. What does this do, emotionally, to your fiancee?

    More likely she tries to wound, misses and is killed by the BG.

    Could she even fire to wound? Would she freeze up?

    These are all questions she must find the answer to before she starts to carry.

    Sorry didn't mean to be a downer here but this sounded serious to me. I hope it all turns out well. Perhaps this would be of assistance. Cornered Cat - Making the Decision

    I always shot to wound....

    I just find that the most effective place to wound is the center of the chest.

    I was taught to wound in 2 round volleys. My first is some what low right center, second is exactly in the middle. It's s rifling thing........

    I was taught to shoot the threat until it stops being a threat and, if you run the gun empty, to reload and continue as long as necessary. Self defense shooting is automatically considered as working under Comstock Rules.

    Remember, if something's worth shooting once, it's worth shooting TWICE- just to make sure.

    Seriously, shooting a couple times and stopping to see how you are doing is a bad habit to get into. You could end up in a situation where that time would best be spent shooting instead of looking. I ain't saying 'spray and pray' because misses won't do you any good, only hits do. I just think if you are gonna lug one of them high capacity guns around, there no more sense in being frugal than there is being wasteful.

    Shooting to wound only leaves the BG around to testify against you. Eliminate the threat with extreme prejudice. My opinion.
    In any situation I can: Say nothing..which is cowardly, Lie..which is immoral or tell the truth..which will upset people.

    Leaving posts like this lying around the internet only leaves your own words to testify against you.

    And don't think for a second that if you are ever involved in a less than pristine shoot (or you have a DA who wants a reputation as being tough on "gun crime" ) that these words can't come back and bite you square in the ass

    Just sayin.
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    There's a reason why all discussions regarding ammo are in terms of "stopping power", not "killing power". We don't think in terms of ending anyone's life, it's all about stopping them from doing what they're doing. They may or may not die, you can't predict, or be concerned with that. You only want to stop them, nothing more.

    Please rethink your attitude.
