I'm posting this in part for training I'll be participating in later this month (AD military laws and enforcement) and I greatly respect the views, experience, and opinions I've seen here on this forum........and also because I've seen (here and elsewhere) diffrent models of the deadly force triangle/force continuum.
I first learned of the 'triangle' many moons ago during military force protection training and the model has been unchanged (for me anyway) for several years now. It consists of Capability, Opportunity, and Intent. The FBI defines this as ability, opportunity, and jeopardy.

Let me be the first to say this is NOT an attempt start a discourse about "which model is better" (i.e. caliber wars) but as a vehicle for learning/reading about the 'diffrent' models that we have trained/learned about/follow during the course of our day-to-day lives. Although there may be several diffrent words/ways to 'put' forth the triangle, ultimately they all 'say' the same thing/have the same meaning.
so, with that said,
1) Which model (or how many diffrent models) do/have you used to train/study by and....
2) which one was/is the easiest for you to use/remember.
