Shoot/no shoot

1013 Views 8 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Powderman
After some practice and though on the matter it seems to me that the longest part of your reaction to an attack or possible impending attack is the mental recognition of what is taking place. I can practice rapid presentation and firing from concealment as much as i want BUT how do you become more proficient in making shoot/no shoot decisions, and how intrusive do you allow certain "just to be safe" type techniques to be in your day to day activities (ie crossing the street if a group of shady looking characters is walking up the road towards you, not getting on an elevator with people, etc) that allow you more time to make these decisions should the need arise?

there are several videos available at your local gun shop or even the NRA on this. You really have to be careful b/c what may be a threat to you may not be sufficient for you to discharge your handgun.

Remember you aren't justifying the discharge of your gun. You are justifying the homicide. If you are wrong you will be charged accordingly. With that in mind you must use any "just to be safe" techniques that you can think of.

Definately research this if you intend to carry.
