    Here is a thread some may find to be of help on what I call your trigger point to react and the thread calls "your line in the sand." Long thread but lots of info given.

    I agree

    Actually I made that decision once. I was standing in the back of an empty deuce and a half on convoy security in SEA in 1969. The convey was returning from a supply run to Mia Loc and had stopped at the bridge to Dong Ha, waiting for traffic to clear so we could cross.
    This child about 4-5 years old came running up to the top of dirt bank about 15 feet from the convey. He point what appeared to be a handgun at me and pulled the trigger. The gun made a bang. I was about 2-3 oz away from unloading a 20 rd magazine into him and my brain kicked in gear telling me something didn't "sound" quite right.
    I jumped off the vehicle and when I got to the kid I found that he had a "toy" gun made out of a piece of wood and a sawed off M1 carbine barrel. It was made like a Zip gun and had been loaded with a blank practice cartridge. Further investigation revealed that the cartridge had not been much more the a empty cartridge case and a primer. The barrel had a piece of steel rod jammed into it.
    FWIW When I got to him my adrenaline was pumping, the kid looked scared and was crying. I took the "toy: and broke it up against the side of the deuce and a half. When I looked again the kid was gone.
    It is a good memory that surfaces once in a while.

    For those that have been there you can remember how the kids swarmed around the stopped coveys begging for candy, cigerettes ETC.

    For some of you that will post " that kid was lucky" I consider myself lucky I didn't pull those last couple of ounces of trigger pull.

    Pulling that trigger then finding out it was a "toy" would not have made it a good memory.
