    Yeah, I like this idea the best. Of course in Florida having a weapon on mall property isn't an automatic felony. In Miami Dade County the local ordinance says that if you ccw into a mall or other private property and IF you are detected you may be asked to leave the premises. If you return again armed and are AGAIN detected you may be arrested for trespass after warning, a misdemeanor.

    Folks, I'll break anybody's POLICY on ccw in a situation like this in my home county (Miami Dade). In this situation, I think I'm a good witness, but if the perp segues into being an active shooter, then I'm going to maneuver and make the shot where it counts.

    Whip out cell phone, speed dial Gecko 45, then pin him down with cover fire until the mall fast action response team with their stinger equiped .338 larupa armed golf carts show up.
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)

    But what if he yells "HEY" and the bad guy turns toward him and in a panic the bad guy fires at him? Now you have a gun battle.
    One more step and it's on!

    Simple. Neutralize the threat and then eat a sandwich.

    I don't know about the rest of you but in the aftermath I'm going to be pretty shaky and near to throwing up dinner from last night, breakfast and probably lunch is going to be the very last thing on my mind. I don't think I'm going to be ever sooooo cool as Bond, James Bond. :c)

    Geeze, it sure sounds like 007. I have seen and participated in some nasty stuff in my life, from being a first responder to a horrific night time car crash where I had to render first aid, to seeing a friend auger in with a total 'chute failure on a HALO drop to body recovery after a Blackhawk crash and worse. None of them ever left me anywhere near to being HUNGRY. Still different strokes for different folks, I guess. We all handle high stress differently.

    I hear you. I have seen people shot, stuck and cut on every part of the body, some dead some alive. A child knocked thirty feet out of his shoes by an armenian schooner, a male who detached the top of his head with an ought six and a male run over and drug in a front wheel well of a car which sanded half his leg off, a kidnapper take an ought six round in the ear at ten yards. I was in a pursuit with a swat unit set up, up ahead. They were going to take out the driver of the veh with a shotgun as we went by at 100+. That made me a little tense. Fortunately we went by so fast they could not get a shot, probably would have killed me. Maybe I'm just crusty.
