Question: Lets say you exit the vehicle with your gun in hand but hidden. Now the person coming towards you hits you with his fist. what if he pushes you? What is your response? Remember, you are holding your gun in your hand. Do you strike him back with your weak hand? Do you walk away? Do you point your gun at him? As a ccw holder we have a duty to de-escalate situations we are in, or to at least not escalate them. Having a gun out in a fist fight sure seems like an escelation to me. A man punching you doesn't justify shooting him. A man pushing you doesn't justify shooting them. A man verbally assaulting you doesn't justify shooting them. I was taught that the only time my gun comes out is when I am prepared and justified to use it. If you exit your vehicle gun in hand, you better be justified and ready to use it. Simply pointing your gun at a person who is approaching you and telling him to back off, pulling a gun on a person in a fist-fight, pulling a gun on a person pushing you is going to get you some alone time in prison. If you are not justified and prepared to use the gun it should not come out of the holster. Exiting the car or staying in the car is debatable, but if you exit the vehicle gun in hand you better be prepared and justified to use it, if not then it should stay in the holster, ready, but holstered.
