Hmmmmmm........ From the clothes the two are wearing I would assume (..and u know wot that means) they are going to ditch the outer garments. I would only attempt head shots - IF I HAD TO SHOOT! AND HAD THE ADVANTAGE.

Backpedaling? Not hardly. He doesn't want to shoot, neither do I. Is he willing to let the bg control the situation? Doesn't sound like it to me. Is he going to shoot given the oppurtunity. I don't know, but it sounds like it to me.

It does make me curious about people that repeatidily agree with any and all posts that senior members make. Sound familiar?

Seems to me there are two issues: One, do you think the law allows you to shoot, and two, if you do, is it a good idea given the totality of circumstances. On issue one, the Texas Penal Code says that the use of deadly force is okay if you reasonably believe that the force is immediately necessary to protect yourself against the BG's use or attempted use of unlawful deadly force or to stop the BG's imminent commission of, e.g., robbery or aggravataed robbery. Tex. Penal Code secs. 9.31 & 9.32. The protection of third persons issue looks like it would come into play here, too, sec. 9.33, and looks like it wouldn't change things.
Next issue is the one that appears to be addressed most above. I think I'd be ready to fire, rather than actually do it, since (I assume) they likely just want the money and will leave after they get it, and there are two armed BGs to deal with rather than just one. It appears that they did leave once they got the money and didn't hurt anyone. Tough call though.
