    Bad guys always intend to do you harm. Remember that.
    You as a defensive shooter have absolutely no means of "being knowlegable" as to the true or hidden agenda of a bad guy.

    It would seem to depend on where you are if involved in a SD shooting.

    Home - most state castle doctrines make you immune from civil suit if the official decision was a justified shooting.

    On the street/outside the areas that the castle doctrines cover...whole 'nother game depending on each state, and quite possibly jurisdiction that the event occurred.

    MitchellCT - one would need to be a paralegal at a minimum to understand the civil code/statutes and so forth.

    Well gee.

    I guess people aught to do more realistic, relevant and recent training, take a self defense and the law class every so often and make avoidance, deesclation and running away near and dear to their heart.

    Like I said above, that would make the problem a non-issue; however, it's just not cool to do those things...I suggest getting Black's Law Dictionary along with your state civil procedure manual.

    It's not like anyone will ever bother to do anything to avoid the problem everyone wants to talk about as if they do this kind of thing for a living...

    Mississippi law provides for immunity from any civil suit if it falls under Castle Doctrine.

    In all seriousness, I would love to take a class like that. I wish I had access to training that allowed me to think about situations before I was put them. That is why I love this part of the forums best. I think Biker said it before, but the above is all part of the training that most of us should have to CCW.

    One other note, I just checked with my insurance guy. I have a larger personal liability policy for $300 per year. He said it DOES cover the cost of litigation. The cost of litigation is NOT a reduction in the policy coverage.

    MitchellCT-
    Thanks for the lead on the course. Here is a great story about it from a student. It got my blood pumping and mind racing just reading it:
