Mugging situation.... lethal justified?
New to forum, but plan to participate and give any and all input that I can. But I wanted to start things off with a scenario that constantly runs through my head every time I walk our local trail. The primary question here is, when would you personally use lethal force in a mugging situation?
Imagine an armed individual. He could have a knife or a gun (I will assume gun here because I feel that is more difficult to assess, but feel free to compare both). Sneaks out of the bushes, points his pistol to you and demands your items.
What if he sees your gun and demands that?
What if he gets distracted or his gun safety is on, do you feel your life is in danger to draw and use lethal force?
At what point would do you consider yourself in imminent danger?
Do you assume he just wants your items and will leave after, posing you no real threat??
