Thread: What would you do?

  1. #1

    Question What would you do?

    This video is great, I have it on the homepage of the sheepdog site.

    What would you do if you come across this scene?

    Video: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540...11901#28511901
    It takes only seconds to call the police, waiting for them to arrive could take the rest of your life...

    Well it would be different I guess. Instead of fighting for the gun I would place the cold steel of my .45 against his head and let him know I would turn his head into a canoe if he didn't let go.

    On the other hand seeing him pointing a gun in the female officers face would be enough to justify deadly force, put two in his chest, give a statement and call it a day!

    I think that I would have shot him and then forgot about it.

    I've been carrying for over 9 years, 24/7, and I have one rule I intend to always go by. If I ever pull it I'm going to shoot it, no words passed.

    In the situation shown in the video I would have just shot him until the threat to the officer was no longer present.

    Statistically firearms are only fired in 1 out of 30 times they are presented in a self-defense situations. There may be incidents where deadly force is justified initially but changes rapidly once a firearm is presented. I used to be of the same mind-set until I received some advanced instruction in a class taught by John Farnam. The class made me rethink how I would respond to various threats.

    For example, if someone is approaching me with a knife, yelling he is going to kill me, and is 20 yards away I am going to draw my firearm even though he may have only Intent and not Opportunity and Capability to harm me. If I wait for him to get closer before presenting my firearm I am being foolish. Seeing a firearm he may change his mind. If he doesn't I am better prepared to defend myself. We need to keep all options available.

    I agree, I would have taken a shot if it were clear.

    I can hear his jail conversation now, "How did they get you?"
