    So guess I'll have to change my mind on talking or not talking to the BG. Make the shot while he is telling you where to go, after asking him to let the victim go and drop the gun or knife.
    From all of my study on the subject (no where near a doctor's), I firmly believe he is right... Of course, he did say best chance, no guarantee.

    It would be a tough call for me, and I wouldn't try it unless I believed he was actually about to use the knife on her. Very scary situation and I won't say how well I would do, but I would do and not freeze. I of course inserted my wife into the scenario.

    Great to hear stories with good outcomes. These SWAT guys were superb. Training pays big dividends.
