    Interesting "what if". The liquid, before or at the outset of it being thrown, could be plain water, yet your "presumption of imminent danger of great bodily injury" is clear and unmistakable. Sounds very much like the perp reaching for a cell phone or a toy gun and nothing that can really harm you yet the "presumption" is there. Guess it still comes down to your instincts and your self-determination of your abilities and responsibilites having a CCW. This all could come into play if you have done everything you can to avoid the problem but are now in that dead end alley with nowhere to go.

    I think it all boils down to how much money you have for a self defense lawyer.

    Tough scenario. If you dont draw, you risk serious injury/death;; if you do shoot, you risk doing time, especially of you're wrong.

    Hey n3ss: Always, at least in this country, someone can always sue for just about anything. Why last week here in Charleston, a lady brought suit over a several year old bra whose black straps supposedly discolored her light brown skin. She is also suing for punitive damages. In SC, though, if it is deemed a "good shoot", the law specifically provides immunity for civil suits. That word "if" in my last sentence ends up being the key, but, bottom line is if you really feel you may die or be seriously injured and all you are thinking about is the lawsuit, you probably should not be CC and maybe you should not even own a firearm.

    In my state, (and in many others, check local law to be sure) we have no duty to retreat law that specifically states that if a shoot is found to be a good shoot, the defendant nor his family, friends, or accomplices can sue. And this is valid law on the street or in your home.

    I may start carrying my swim goggles around with me. If I get into condition one, I can slip them on quickly and it would protect my eyes. Of course, almost all of these attacks come without any warning. Maybe I'll just wear them everywhere. That will make my wife happy. :)

    Recently watched an episode of I Survived on Bio channel and a gal had acid thrown in her face...twice, about a month or so apart. Bad news. SA needs to be high as well as prepared to act swiftly and violently if situation demands.

    Due to one eye being overly sensitive to sunlight, I usually wear sunglasses almost all the time when out. The particular type of sunglasses I prefer cover a lot of the eye area and wrap around to my temples. Maybe this would help protect me in a situation such as this. I hope so anyway.

    the real solution is keeping a high SA level going all the time.
