Well, I WAS going to give you the long version as to how I myself had to shoot two young gentlemen who approached me one night and put a gun to my head in an attempt to rob me, but as it turns out, you can't post anything over 1k characters, and the story and it's worthwhile details would require more space than that. I guess I can boil it down to: I had my .380 in my pocket, when they approached and pointed a gun at me, I pulled it out and shot both of them point blank, one in the chest (3 rounds) the other in the gut (3rounds) and I guess i missed the other two shots (gun brand unimportant). Let me say this above all else, as one who's done this as a civillian in self defense: When the time comes, it's going to be a LOT easier than you think to pull that trigger, and there's nothing that says it's ever going to bother you. You will do what you have to do. YOU will go home safe and sound to your family. Let the guys who tried to kill you be the ones who end up on the t shirt. They somehow ran and were caught immediately, one of them was in surgery by the time the evidence techs showed up to work the scene. Both of them lived. Nothing happened to me at all. The cops literally thanked me and called me a hero. They were quite pleased with how it played out. "That's what guns are for." one of them said. Then I went back to my normal life, just like that. I dodged the press for two days, but they didn't put my identity in the media, and I didn't make any statements. Just saying, it may really come to it one day that you have to use what you carry.
