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 You'll find such issues discussed at length in their on-line newsletters.

Best wishes,
