You're right...he had a rifle. The pistol was a simple example.

If I stop your car for speeding and I see you have a gun in your hand as I walk up it would immediately change things and be treated the same as this. A situation is treated differently when a weapon at the ready is present, it is common sense. For example, you would treat an unarmed man or even a man with a holstered pistol who is knocking on your front door differently than a man holding a gun.
