    I was just thinking, It's one thing to say you would fight if the gun were to your own head. But add the gun to the wifes head and suddenly its not your own life we gamble with. Thats the point I am going after, would you hesitate before acting because the gun were to her head and not your own?

    NP, I was in a goofy mood last night anyway. These are quotes from my wife.

    If he's behind me, I'm grabbing your gun and shooting him. If I'm carrying and he's behind you I'm shooting him.

    My gut says shoot as soon as I can. Hence the lunge at him to distract and try to deflect the gun while getting mine into play. Seems the better half is with me on that.

    Again, it falls into the "don't let a BG move you" idea. And no way I'm letting an armed BG separate me from a family member if I can stop it. And yes, it's a more difficult decision when it's someone else that pays for your mistake. But my fear is they will pay for my inaction as well. There is no good outcome in a situation like this, only less bad.
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    BG in back seat already. His gun to her head, if his finger is on the trigger, likely is if she his the gas hard, she gets shot due to his finger jerking from the sudden movement. Maybe he misses. If I draw, and he doesn't see it, maybe I kill him before he kills her, but maybe he kills her as he's dying. If she complies and drives, maybe I choose a better spot to kill him - if not, the situation can't worsen. I wait to shoot until the gun is away from her head...or...I take the shot and she takes one for the team. Guess it's good I'm not married.

    Being married most of my life, her taking one for the team will be avoided if at all possible. Prior to shooting him, his gun has to be pointed at something other than her. Whether through having him move it through anger toward me or deflection, it needs to move befor I shoot.

She has already started the car and rolled all windows down. You get into the car, and right after you get in the car, a man with a gun gets into the backseat and points his gun to your wifes head. What do you do now, All he tells you to do is drive.

    If your window's are down why is the A/c running????

    besides that... ask the BG what he wants... then give him something he doesn't

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
