    Run very fast. Shoot until threat is stopped
    Yes Taurus really does suck. But in fairness they sure turned it around fast on warranty repair. Time will tell

    Circumstances will dictate what comes next. Rest assured that it will be different from what didn't work.

    From my sig line:
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    If you're so rooted in a training mindset that keeps you from stepping out of the box, you'll probably lose the fight or fight it to a draw, where you both lose.

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    The guy with the 44 mag was using JSP, the absolute worst SD load for a 44 mag. I believe the 45 Colt rounds were WW Silvertips. It just goes to show that some people refuse to stop.

    I would stop shooting and wait for the perp to close the distance where a head shot was assured. Then I would unload remaining round into his head. Unlike COM hits headshots are as good a guarantee of stopping the adversary as one can get.

    Perp was under 150#'s no narcotics in his system. The Chicago Det. stated the guy was terrifying.

    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Start shooting for the groin or the brain bucket, first.

    Second, be glad that I don't carry a low-capacity pistol.

    See?, it's these very scenarios that get me worried about just having the J frame on the days off.
