    Another consideration is that by virtue of having drawn down upon someone prematurely, you may well give them the opportunity of shooting you and claiming self defense.
    If they have displayed a weapon and acted in a menacing way, then employ deadly force in the defense of your life.
    If they have not done so, keep it in the holster and RUN AWAY.

    Real engagements are usually over pretty quickly. If you draw down, they'll do one of three things:
    1.Freeze - At this point I would still shoot them IF they were armed and pointing a weapon at me. If they dropped the weapon and surrendered, a legal right to employ lethal force no longer exists. Call 911 (or have a bystander do so) AND BE SURE TO ADVISE THE DISPATCHER THAT YOU ARE ARMED AND HOLDING YOUR ATTACKER AT GUNPOINT. Otherwise, responding officers will be unable to tell you from the BG, and you might just get shot. Also, stay behind cover and KEEP YOUR DISTANCE.
    2. Attack - Here you must engage without ANY hesitation.
    3. Run - If this happens, let 'em go. Otherwise, some wannabe hero in the DA's office might just make a vertical career move at your expense.
