So you saw a gun in his hand yet you did not draw on him.Originally Posted by XD in SC;541538
He starts to talk, and as I see his right hand is behind him, I ask him to keep his hands in front of him.
He keeps talking and brings out his right hand with handgun by his side.
You waited till he drew on you first so he got the drop on you.
First shot to the throat. You probably never would have even been able to get a shot off had it been real.
Don't do that in real life!

Remember gang, this is in the Tactical Scenarios topic, NOT the Tactical Training topic. We weren't there for training, we were there to see what an LEO may face on any random call during their duty.
I don't claim to be trained in any of this. I now have a better understanding of it, but I am certain I will not be clearing a strange house, full of strangers at any point in my civilian life.
I have no problems with the way I handled it. I was asked afterwards to sign up for a position as a Reserve Deputy. I think I did well enough.
