    Once more, thank you for your time and expertise. I need insight on this senario. I beleive my life is threatened; BG shows intent to kill or do significant physical harm; BG show he has the ability to inflict death or serious injury. I pull my weapon, he drops his and yells "don't shoot/don't shoot". What do I do? Call the police ( if I have a phone ) and wait? Tell him to get out of here!!! Fear of future reprisal/revenge? Thank you for your opinion.

    Vol, that's a hugely complicated question with almost infinite conditional branching. It's why we have to devote many hours to it in training. I couldn't begin to address it in the short space we have here in GATE for answers.

    I'd suggest that you check out ACLDN, the Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network, at http://armedcitizensnetwork.org. You'll find such issues discussed at length in their on-line newsletters.

    Best wishes,
    Mas
