Taking the shot is always the last resort. But, like Clint Smith says, two in the gun *NOW* is better than a full load *MAYBE* (later). Of course this was in response to performing a tactical reload, but the moral of the story is the best tool for the job is the one at hand. If all you have at hand is a rubber chicken, it may be the best tool you have to dispatch the fool.
I do like the idea of aiming low to take out the legs with a shotgun.
