OK, maybe not a Kobyashi Maru scenario but let put forth this scenario:
What would you do if you are in Store, large government building (Post Office), large business center and it was taken over by terrorist. You are legally armed (or not ) and you are not seen. You take out a terrorist but can't get out of the building. The remaining terrorist now know that there is an armed GG and call out that if you do not surrender they will kill a child. Then they will kill more after that until you come out.
A- give yourself up
B- stay in hiding
Caveats: you are not Jack Bauer nor any other fictional character that can take out 20 terrorists with a handgun.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
How many remaining terrorists?

100% chance I would not be carrying the Post Office.
I'm not surrendering, and if it is one-on-one, I won't be hiding.
They'll kill the kid anyway, make them work for you.

The Totalitarian State in America will not arise at the point of a gun. It will come with a message of
"We only want what's best for you. It's for your own good."
"We ain't givin' up our guns. Only chance we got is with these guns." -- Charley Waite, in the 2003 film Open Range.
Make them leave the building.......time to start a fire!
"If you can do it, you damn well better be able to look at it!".....Matt Helm
Hmm. I would steal the two way radio from the terrorist I killed and then listen in on the conversation of the other terrorists. I would then occasionally taunt them and draw them in to various booby traps I set using normal household items I gathered from around the building. I would save the head terrorist for last so that we could have a drawn out fight.
But seriously, I would not give myself up. They're terrorists. They have every intention of killing everyone for their terror. You're not saving anyone by giving yourself up.
If you're talking about a media terrorist i.e anybody with a gun and hostage I probably wouldn't shoot the 1st guy.
If you're talking about terrorists making a political/religious statement then UAL 93 applies. Lets Roll!
