    Me too. And if I do I hope the story doesn't say I had to rack a round into the chamber before I fired.

    I don't presently carry with a round in the chamber. I may rethink that.

    The gun had one fired round and three misfires, I think it was a defective weapon.

    What people have to realize when they start carrying a gun. If they are forced to use it, their life will be altered forever. Not only does a person need to practice things like SA, tactics and shooting skills. They also need to mentally prepare for a defensive shooting and the aftermath of it.

    "Emptying his clip, Wolf punched a spare clip into the grip and kept the gun leveled."

    He emptied a "CLIP" and reload a "CLIP"? When did Glock start using stripper clips?

    All Male Bovine Feces aside, the after event is much harder on a person then the event. Most of the time during the event your in the Fight or Flight mode looking for a way to survive. When you step out of the crisis is when your "what If" and "why me" thinking kicks in! And that doesn't include all the outside peer/family pressure!

    Those new to carring should read "In Gravest Extreme" here is a Amazon link: In the Gravest Extreme: The Role of the Firearm in Personal Protection: Massad F. Ayoob: 9780936279008: Amazon.com: Books

    Interesting read. Kudos to Mr Wolf and Ms Keeney.

    Mr Wolf is alive only because of three misfires. If your weapon is not loaded and ready to shoot, why carry it?

    Better than the memories and trauma of being a victim.

    Situational awareness is key.

    Ayoob is the role model I follow. Been a while since I read the book but I think his advice is what I practice today. Call 911 when officer arrives explain I am the good guy he tried to shoot me. I want to cooperate in any way I can in the next 72 hours once I have spoken to my attorney and then shut my pie hole and say no more.

    I don't like that the family of the BG said the victim should've shot their son on the leg or arm so he could spend time in jail. I wonder if the BG would do the same to the victim? Shot him to wound instead of killing him for the robbery. What is up with these people? If you pull your weapon it is inteded to stop the criminal with DEADLY FORCE.....not WOUNDING FORCE.
