    Pulled Firearm Now What???

    Lets say you are in a situation where you pulled your ccw to stop a BG and when he sees the pistol he drops his weapon and runs the other way.
    Now what should you do at this time, call the police to let them know what happened, to give your side of the story before the BG does or a bystander that only saw half of what really happened?
    Basically to cover your butt.
    What would you do???

    I think if you pull your weapon you should be the first to call 911.

    I agree, Call the police a quickly as possible and tell them your side of the story, before the BG or someone else does and tries to tell a different story.

    In this case not only because you pulled your gun, but because now there is an orphaned "weapon" lying on the ground that you probably don't want to take home and don't want to leave on the ground for a kid to come across.

    Agree - Call 911 and tell your side of the story first.

    If you draw you call

    It would seem that if the scene were safe, standing over the orphaned firearm would be prudent, letting the LEO deal with it.

    But if the scene were dangerous and you decide to leave (on your way to rendezvous with LEO to give your report, I assume), do you take the weapon? Or do you let the 911 operator talk you through that? And what if the 911 operator tells you to stay and you're convinced it would be unhealthy to do so?

    Sure seems that having the weapon would bolster the case for pulling yours, but I don't want to get in worse trouble (or shot by one of his associates).

    Another reason to call 911 ASAP: There is a chance the BG has now seen the error of his ways and will sin no more. There is also a chance you will win the lottery. Help get this guy off the streets before he finds his next victim, who may not be as lucky as you.

    This is an extremely important point. And, yes, call 911 immediately.

    Called police every time, they recovered a knife on one occasion. They were great, took a report and later, heard the guy's parole was revoked.

    One of the instructors in my firearms class said that the first person to call 911 is considered the victim. He told of stories where after the BG fled, the BG called 911 and the intended victim had lots of explaining to do.

    Be the first to call...always.
