I searched for a similar thread but didnt find one so here goes. Lets say you are minding your business in your car, lets say eating or waiting for someone and suddenly carjacked in a parking lot of a big store, or a rest stop and the bg has already drawn on you, assuming you get out, and he turns his back to get in, would you try to draw and shoot? If so, is this considered protection of property or life? Legalities?
Well, if there is no one else in the car and his intentions are to drive away with my car, I let him go and immediately call 911.
Now, I do carry a BUG on my ankle, and is likely that if I have the opportunity to draw and shoot while he is pointing at me, I would. It all depends on many factors and circumstances at the time.

They happen so fast you're lucky to get out of the driver's door before he takes off. But yes, if he's dinking around and not paying attention to me, AND I can draw without him seeing it, he'll get plugged.
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
If the bg is leaving you unharmed (albeit taking your car) and you kill him, you might be prosecuted, depending on the p.i.t.a. quotient of the local D.A. I think the safe principle is: if it's just property, let it go. OTOH, if the bg was facing you with a weapon or otherwise threatens your life, he's forfeited any consideration by you. Of course, if the obamanuts manage to britishize us, your only hope is the bg will have a stroke before he pulls the trigger.

the only problem with this holster is that if he has a gun pointed at you, are you going for the gun or are you going to get out of the car and risk your gun going with it? Also this holster defeats my question because this holster is like open carry, you lost the element of surprise, In fact you might spook the BG and he shoot you. (or he may run which is what you hope happens)
Lets say you are minding your business in your car, lets say eating or waiting for someone (I've found myself in these types of parking and waiting/eating situations, and I always try to park in an open area where I can see someone approaching if possible)
and suddenly carjacked in a parking lot of a big store, or a rest stop and the bg has already drawn on you, (if BG has already drawn, I'm doing what he says... until an opportunity to do otherwise presents itself)
assuming you get out, and he turns his back to get in, would you try to draw and shoot? (ABSOLUTELY!)
If so, is this considered protection of property or life? Legalities?
(If BG has a gun, that's good enough for me. I'm not going to assume he's just going to peacefully drive away. Who knows what state of mind the BG may be in. He may shoot me just to avoid being identified)
When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

I would do anything I could to draw on him and shoot him dead! If you point a gun at me, I WILL DO ALL I CAN to stop the threat on me. This does not mean stupidly drawing when he obviously has the drop on me, I dare say that there would be opportunity to draw when "exiting" the vehicle. When I reach for my seatbelt would be an opportune time to draw.
I love my truck, but I will not kill to save it...I will kill to save myself or someone else.
