Of Course I was being sarcastic but, now I am being serious.
Glocksin - I see that your location is "Somewhere In Georgia" - I would strongly suggest that you familiarize yourself with the State Of Georgia laws as they pertain to self-defense before you just "type stuff" off the top of your head into DefensiveCarry forum posts.
In GA you need to be able justify your actions as being mandatory to having saved yourself from the assailant.
In order to claim self-defense the act of self-defense should be plausible.
Your act of self-defense needs to be proportional to the assault being perpetrated against you in order to have any real hope in the courtroom in claiming the incident as self-defense.
In GA if you are being assaulted out in a public place then you are subject to a duty to retreat initially and are required to avoid the confrontation if possible & prior to acting in self-defense or with deadly force.
You need to be very careful in claiming "self-defense" if you are the first to inflict physical injury and your responsive action would need to be considered to be reasonable and fitting the scenario or circumstance.
You really need to stop it with the Anonymous Internet Bravado and silly, nonsensical, postings.

I think he meant "I shot him in the butt at 50' with my paintball gun."

I have been in front of a loaded .45 in a robbery situation and the bad guy said, "don't look at my face, turn around, do what I tell you and I won't hurt you". At that moment I decided to follow his instructions and I lived to tell about it. Having said this, I strongly feel that if I was approached with this same scenario 5 times, there may be several different results than the one I mentioned. I don't want to be overly analytical but I think there are too many variables to be able to predict exactly what you will do. It is a decision that you have to make in that instant when it happens. Just one quick example: If the bad guy was a young teen and you noticed the barrel of the revolver looked like it had a very small hole like a .22 instead of a big hole like a .45. Do you think this would influence you in how to react? Just think about it!

And what keeps him from then killing you so there are no witnesses ? It's not an uncommon practice.

Life is full of taking chances. If you are already in the losing position, you take the chance of getting killed for no reason or not drawing fast enough. Your decision.

Man, you need to re-evaluate your thinking. Gunfights aren't much fun, and aren't something to take lightly. They are lots of fun with paintball guns though, but not so much when bullets are flying around you.

Did you figure out how to carry your TRP at the gym yet, while still allowing you quick access?

There are techniques taught that teach you how to disarm someone, but you must do so while taking yourself out of the line of fire. It can be done from front or if gun is behind you.
I saw a training video recorded of a trooper sucessfully doing this at a traffic stop, but he gave the gun right back to the perp, because that is what we do in training with the red guns to "do it over again with your traing partner".
The perp was so totally caught off guard by this that he just stood there with the gun in his hand. The trooper, realizing what he had just done, repeated the drill, and this time, kept the weapon and cuffed the perp.
This is a good example of training going good and bad.
When I was in Quantico, the FBI did a study that showed that the typical felon is programed to believe that you will comply with their demand based on they expect you to be fearful of them. It showed that when you calmy said"no" that their brain temporarily short circuits, giving you a fraction of a second to act. I am not advocating anyone to do this, but it is something to file away as another tool on a dire situation.
The study was conducted for just the purpose of the OPs thread.
