Naturally my first priority is protecting my family and myself. I'd do what it takes to save my family, including begging. Being armed, I would be trying to size up the situation, environment, back drop, odds, etc. Most stores have isle type layouts that limit your available cover / concealment. I would assume the BG's are there solely to steal money and get out before the police arrive. If my family / other people were in my direction, the last thing I would want to do is draw fire from the BG'S. I wouldn't want to be responsible for escalating a robbery into a shoot out. Personally, I believe I would have to be convinced without a doubt that death / serious injury were imminent. It's one of those scenarios where good judgment can go bad?

Please read my previous post. I explained some very real personal concerns that affect what actions I take.

This is one of the biggest lessons I took away from a personal defense class almost 30 years ago. Pre-plan, practice, and evolve. In other words, use your head, maintain your skill set, and remain flexible in both thinking and skills.
My job is to keep my family safe, NOT play mall ninja. I'm going to do whatever it takes to come out of this situation alive with my Family intact. I am physically unable to run so any action I take is going to be as ruthless and expedient as possible. I have no other choice than to end any violent encounter quickly and efficiently. HOW I do that or IF that action is even necessary depends on the actual encounter.

As long as they are taking the money and leaving, let the leo's deal with it, hopefullly that is all they want, if they want more. I carry my gun to protect me and my famlily, I would hope all the training, double tapping, and engaging more than one target would kick in, when the first set of double taps sounds off would already be focusiing on bg 2 n hoping he has no idea whats happening untill he feels the second set of double taps, at this point any shot on the bg is a good shot, back of the head,center mass, whatever it takes, n have one extra bullet to boot.....

Very scary situation indeed. If they are looking to get out with the money and nothing more it would be best to let them do so. If it goes beyond that and the situation escalates, i.e, gathering people up or looking to shoot/harm someone then your choice has been made for you. No harm shall come to the innocent.

I agree with everything except the part about hiding behind my son. I am not going to hide behind my children, they will be pushed behind me.
