Wondering what the best tactic for the situation is. If you had a suspect who had a weapon and was in the "gray" area between either attacking you or maybe going to comply (but definitely is not complying yet), would hypothetical finger be on trigger or off trigger? I assume sights are on target. The gray area I'm talking about is real close to you being shot at, but it hasn't quite caused you to pull the trigger yet. For example, suppose the suspect has a gun displayed and is maybe going to point it at you, but you haven't crossed the decision making threshold of your having to shoot just yet (a moment of hesitation but watching for that next que as to what the suspect is going to do). One more inch of aggressive move by the suspect and you will have to defend yourself. So you are ready, maybe even expecting you will have to shoot. Would finger be on trigger or off trigger? I was thinking about an LEO context, but relates to civilian CCW, if in same situation (with no ability to retreat).
