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?
I think having a card printed to pass out when you shoot someone will go against you in court. Both criminal and civil.
I just think it is dorky LOL
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
I heard about these from somwhere else, don't have any myself. I was just curious what everyones thoughts on them were.

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.

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.
I got enough junk in my wallet already.
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.
