    USCCA "Post Shooting Cards"...who keeps one on them? Good or bad idea?

    Does anyone keep any of the USCCA post shooting cards on them? They seem like a good idea to have in the event you have to use deadly force. What's the verdict on them? Is the statement on the back (view link below) something you could really hand to the police after a self defense shooting and then not have to say anything else to them?

    Thanks

    I think having a card printed to pass out when you shoot someone will go against you in court. Both criminal and civil.

    And the fact you were carrying a gun when you shot him will not to the same extent? I don't get your logic....actually I do but disagree with it. If you are carrying a gun it is because you may need to use it. I think the card is not really an issue.

    I just think it is dorky LOL

    Especially if you have on shooting glasses and electronic muffs when the police arrive...

    In all honesty, these are good things to say, but I'd have them in my head...no cards!
    I'd also ask to go to the hospital because I'm not feeling well.

    I don't see any real need for such a card but if it makes you feel better buy one.........

    I prefer the card that says Officer please excuse the fact that my head is at present a flaming skull and that my motorcycle is flaming. . I was in the presence of evil and this just happens. It will go away at day break and you may start a manhunt for me at that time. Until then I suggest you and everyone else get as far away from me as possible.

    I have no desire for one, but if it works for you, fine.

    Just a money maker for Tim. Are you and other CCer complete morons? I think we all have a brain why don't we use it. Have what you will say in your head and let it come out naturally.

    While the front side says somewhat I would say, throw #4 away along with the backside. After showing the evidence I'd say.....I'm not feeling well at this time and prefer not to answer anymore questions at this time. Since I'm and old man I'd also add I think I need to be checked out by a Dr.

    Then keep your mouth shut.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ What he said ^^^^^^^^^^ I just don't think it will look good in court, if it gets that far.

    seems stupid to me.. and i can see how this may backfire against you... and it just plain looks bad that you have a card with a pre-written script of what to say on it.

    Massad Ayoob suggests a pretty similar list of things to tell the cops in the event of a shooting... Print your own card if you must... But try to remember the basics.

    Read Mas Ayoob's book in my sig line. It's dated... but then, it's still pretty accurate.

    Having the card in your wallet and reading from it...

    To me, that's a bit like the guy who was taping the party across the street in TX, and all the while he was telling the camera... "I'm standing my ground, I'm in fear of my life, they are threatening me." He shot one. He went to jail.... He was trying to use all the "code phrases" in his defense before the act... he should have just gone into his house and called the cops.

    video here (lots of commentary before and after)...:

    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose
