Call the Police?
Just curious to hear everyone's thoughts. Suppose you were forced to pull your gun on a BG but he took the hint and left you alone, maybe in a store parking lot, etc. Would you call the police to report the incident or just let well enough alone?

you shouldnt have to ask that question. you should call the police cause the BG is out for one reason and you might have been able to protect yourself but the next person might not and then it is on your head if anotjer individual is hurt cause you did nothing about it.

I would call and report immediately. If you don't, the criminal may call and say "Some guy pulled a gun on me! Now they are coming after you. OMO, YMMV.

yeah, definitely call. You could get yourself in legal trouble if you don't. Take the responsible stance and show that you used your rights appropriately.
Not wanting to report it might indicate that you're not confident that you were justified in pulling the ccw out. If that's the case, then you probably made a mistake, in which case you better hope the other guy is willing to keep his mouth shut.

Unless you want to risk a lot of legal trouble for yourself call the police.
You may inadvertently be helping the next potential victim at the same time.

Would you prefer to be taken down as a person of interest in a claim of aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon?

Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Nothing I say as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice. Legal questions should be presented to a competent attorney licensed to practice in the relevant state.

Yes, if you draw you call
