No, it will not stop me from carrying a 1911. If he pulled his pistol he should have fired it. Hindsight being 20/20 as it is...
I am glad he is OK, I hope I do better if I am ever in that position.

Agreed. He should have turned the other way, but most importantly should have engaged the threat a lot sooner not negotiate to go into a room with the bad guy. Doesn't matter what pistol this guy had he was going to get shot. He wasn't trained enough to use this weapon, when there is a problem you're to bring the gun up in your work space which is in front of your face to see what going on with the weapon. This is all in hind sight which is 20/20 and I wasn't there but I'm glad he lived to tell this story.
