    I've always trained 2 rounds, evaluate threat, repeat if necessary. Always CM. I train to STOP the threat. I advise all to have the same mind set. JMHO

    I read this quote a long time ago. It was from a "gun guy", but unfortunately I can't remember the name.

    Seems a stupid debate indeed. As an armed civilian, you shoot to stop - death is one variation on that theme, one potential outcome - but you are shooting to stop the threat. I was in danger and had to stop threat to my life.

    And to be honest - meaning no disrespect to my fellow veteran - that email seemed to be babbling to me.

    Very true, my thoughts exactly.

    If I fire my weapon at a person, it doesn't matter to them whether I intended to stop them or kill them. I am using lethal force, and will most likely not hit the exact spot I aim for - assuming I have enough time to aim at all - so a shot that was intended to wound could very well be fatal.

    By pointing my weapon at a person and pulling the trigger, I am accepting the possibility that they will die. If I am not able to accept that then I have no business carrying a weapon in the first place.

    Because I'm Politically Incorrect, and because a person who has doubts is thinking about two different things at the same time and can't make up his mind about anything, I would never point my gun at anyone threatening my life or the life of a loved one that I didn't intend to kill.

    I have never aimed a weapon at another human being with the specific intent of killing them but I have aimed a weapon at another human being with the specific intent of shooting them.
