Shot if safe backdrop
Dont engage due to only wielding
Engage because there is a gun wielded
Unless you're a trained SWAT sniper, please don't try to save me when the bad guy has a gun stuffed in my face: I'd be very likely picking bullets out of my own brain matter for the next year or two; both from the BG's ND when you startled him with your gunshots, and from your own rounds hitting me as you were attempting to "save my life".
Can you shoot... yes (abide to state guide lines)
would i shoot is another story.
In other words, please get back to me when your very existence on this earth has been on the line if the BG won and if you lost.
I'm in ret's camp here,
Its a await and see, for a short time; get a pulse on their attitude,
but in the end run, if these chumps seem like they are hell bent on self-destruction, going down without a fight seems stupid
You will never begin in the fight you have planned for. You will begin in the fight the other guy has planned for.
Move in a manner that leads him into your fight should he press his attack.
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

Shoot. Alot. Robbers come in, guns out, I am firing. And I am not thinking much about backstops. Or at least I will give backstops as much thought as cops do when they shoot.---None, to little---
Legal and ethical considerations, backstop, proximity of bystanders, are they wearing body armor, element of surprise, etc. We have to run thru most or all of those things......and they do not. They just point and shoot at will.
Hopefully tho, the more we all read about and hear about more variables, the better and faster we will be able to react appropriately to a situation.
Fortune favors the bold.
Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.
The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
