Thread: What would you do?

  1. #11
    Shoot to stop the action.

    That phrase is self explanatory.

    If someone (ANYone) pulls a gun - I assume two things very quickly.

    1. It's loaded.
    2. They know how to use it.

    I would be moving and responding accordingly. Plenty of bystanders are killed by idiot gangbangers that can't shoot worth a $#!^ either, but the rounds they loose down range don't care about the skill at the trigger. (Or complete lack thereof.)

    Whether they can shoot or not, or whether it is loaded or not - and regardless of age and gender, matters not. Unless you're a member of the new administration. Then, you'd negotiate with them until they fell asleep in your lap. Or until they kill you.

    I have to agree with GP when the bullets are a flying if you take the time to check for age or sex of the shooter you will die...

    How could you NOT stop an attempt at mass murder?!

    As far as I know it is. A bullet is an equal opportunity destroyer.

    The incident that propelled me to shed my wool and put on a dog collar was getting robbed in my driveway. When the police (finally) showed up to take my statement I couldn't tell them much at all about what the guy looked like but I was able to describe the revolver he was holding pretty well. What I am getting at is when the shiznit is going down I don't know if I would even notice the age/sex of the BG, but I would be concentrating on the threat.

    Wow...was he waiting on you or was it just a crime of opportunity?

    It was more than likely a crime of opportunity I think because at that time I was going to school and bar tending so I never got home at any predictable time.
    There were two things I was thinking of at the time: 1) My pistol was in my night stand which was really helpful to me at the time, and 2) How much it was going to hurt if he decided to shoot.

    My SA was zero. I have learned a lot since then.
