    Shoot or Don't Shoot?

    Scenario A-- You're walking in a parking lot with 3 co-workers when a four door honda sedan drives up. You have your concealed carry weapon with you. The car stops in front of your group and out pop 3 juveniles and one of them has a handgun and demands your group to hand over wallets and purses. You position yourself for a clear shot that will be away for your party and no apparent collateral dangers down range.
    Shoot or don't shoot?

    Scenario B--Same as above only the juveniles only imply a weapon.

    A. Shoot
    B. Draw and if any further escalation takes place...Shoot

  6. A. Shoot

    B. What's the implication? If the BG has his hand in his jacket pocket, thrust forward pointing through the pocket, it may not be an empty threat. Hesitating to shoot may be a losing bet. I think this one comes down to the basic principle of self defense: If you truly believe the threat exists, react to it.

    Next scenario..

    You walk into a connivence store and you see a guy with his gun pulled on the store clerk and he's shouting obscenities. This has all the appearances of a robbery. His back is toward you and he doesn't notice you coming in.

    In my State...

    1. shoot until empty

    2. walk away
    - would not show my weapon unless I plan to take action
    - if you pull and hold your weapon to confirm, they can have first shot , no Mexican Stand-offs
    - force them to brandish weapon
    - confirm for your target(s) and shoot away if confirmed

    Shoot or don't shoot?
    1. You are in a place where you have a legal right to be - public parking lot.
    2. You are meeting force with equal force - the felon has produced a method of generating death or serious bodily injury to any/everybody in the immediate area.
    3. You are dealing with an immediate forceable felony - armed robbery.
    Fire at person with gun until threat is stopped, then start watching the hands of the rest of them.
    Call 911.


    Scenario B--Same as above only the juveniles only imply a weapon.


    Shoot or don't shoot?
    1. You are in a place where you have a legal right to be - public parking lot.
    2. You are meeting force with equal force - the felon has NOT YET displayed a method of generating death or serious bodily injury to anybody in the immediate area.
    3. You are dealing with an immediate forceable felony - armed robbery.
    Get the weapon ready, but out of sight to the vermin.
    Start watching the hands of all of them.
    Call 911.
