I keep having these reoccurring thoughts about a good/bad shoot. Normally I wouldn't post - but... it's been eating my lunch. I live in Indiana (if that helps anyone). Maybe you can give some input, maybe not. Here's the (hypothetical) scenario: Road range incident - More than likely me trying to pass someone else and they get PO'ed and try and follow me. The reason isn't too important. Road rage leads to increase in adrenaline. I pull into parking lot - Mejier, gas station, etc. Didn't call 911 because I'm too busy driving - (manual transmission - plus obvious distraction from trying to evade). Other driver, (suspect), approaches me on foot - quickly. Obviously pissed, full of adrenaline and shouting - something along the lines of "I"m gonna f---- you up," "Let's settle this." "What the F---- do you think you're doing..." You get the picture. I open door, draw my CCW weapon, point it at him and command a "STOP!" He continues and I essentially shoot a (what appears to be) unarmed man behind cover. Do I have all the advantages? Yes. Isn't that the point? You can obviously modify the situation to other realistic incidents involving something as common as road rage. Another plausible scenario would be getting blocked in traffic and he approaches vehicle - or gets out in front of you - AS you are blocked in - leaving you only enough room to repeat the same scenario as at the "parking lot" = open door and barricade with weapon trained on him ready to fire. My main defense (and I'm not proud to admit)? I can't fight worth a ****. Most people can't and I really don't want to risk my life on it. Who knows what hypothetical suspect has on him or what he is on. Thoughts? Much appreciated!
