    If he let the guy get close enough to punch him in the head and then pistol whipped him things could have turned out a lot different

    Amen on that! One of the questions I was asked at my "Oral Board" prior to joining the Delaware State Police was, "What would you do if someone came at you with a knife?" I answered I would shoot him. They stated that they were going to train me how to take a knife away from an attacker. I stated I would still shoot him. I got the job.

    More of this stuff should be in the news, but the media hates talking about these kinds of stories.

    Kudos to both permit holders.

    These are the situations that are going to get people (CWP holders) in big trouble. If the threat is not great enough to use deadly force, and the the person who initially posed as a threat walks away, why pursue? I can understand maybe following from a distance and calling 911, but really? If he would have used deadly force AFTER the BG walked away and ended the initial confrontation, things could have gotten messy for the CWP holder.

    But I'm glad this ended well and the BG was taken care of.
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
    Question everything, Learn something, Answer nothing.
    Those who have an answer for everything, have an answer for nothing.
