    "Shoot to stop" means to end the danger. Trying to "shoot to wound" doesn't do that. If you shoot someone and the danger ends good, if they keep coming shoot again. I know you said you're playing devil's advocate, but I believe shoot to wound is doing that. For one you're leaving yourself open to a law suit. For another the danger may still exist. Always "shoot to stop". Remember we're talking deadly force here.

    I've seen Marines, do the same thing.
    Some, never recover.
    Would I kill again? Yes.
    I assume you did this as a matter of duty in the military / or as a LEO....

    In a dire situation as the scenario discussed in this thread, do you think that you are actually ponder that thought? NOT!!
    The dead tell no tales! A traumatic and sad event having to take another humans life? Yes it has to be....absolutely! Have I ever done this? No and hope to never have to. Could I and would I if needed? Yes.
    So, my question to you is this....
    Would you rather be traumatized and sad and your loved ones safe? Or at room temperature.
    An ARMED individual is a CITIZEN! ...An UNARMED individual is a SUBJECT!
