I have a Georgia CCW for personal defense. In order to avoid using a handgun in a situation against an intoxicated or drugged individual who is unarmed but advancing on to hurt me, would it look more responsible to use a slap jack rather than using a firearm? At the age of 55, I can no longer protect myself against someone half my age or against multiple assailants bare handed, and it would seem prudent to have another option for avoiding an armed confrontation. I also carry a mace-type spray,but that may not work against a seriously drugged individual. How do the courts look upon someone with a CCW using a non-firearm weapon to avoid using a handgun? Similar to using a slap jack, how do the courts look upon a middle-age man using police gloves with lead or steel shot to settle a bad situation? I want to avoid a costly lawsuit from discharging a firearm against an unarmed assailant. Thank you for your comments.
