IMHO, if you elect to carry a gun, you must commit to taking even more of that without reacting, no matter who you are in front of.

If what you're worried about is your looking cowardly having a negative effect on your son's perception of you, nip the problem in the bud and have a conversation with him about why dad needs to act the way he does (the legal ramifications in addition to Matthew 5:39). That way he won't see it as "rationalizing" for appearance of weakness on your part if you have to explain ex post facto should another similar situation arise.

As an extension, though, sometime you may have to deal with something calling for less than lethal. A twice a month boxing or some"martial" class would get you in a toussel, and let you get used to taking some hits. Even fencing can be practical, if you put some thought into it.
