Wow, just read through all 9 pages. Very interesting how different we all are in the different scenarios. I think it's interesting to note that the OP's scenario could happen everywhere in the USA except Illinois. Citizens are sheep there since they can't carry a gun.
It's very easy for everyone to sit at the keyboard and say what they would do in the varying situations. But when the juices start flowing in the heat of the moment, anything is possible. I wish there were more training programs available where you could train for the various scenarios. LE have those neat simulators to help them train. Wish they were available for classes to the public. If the realism is anywhere near the sims I use for flight training, the training would be invaluable.
BTW, I'm siding towards Bren's advice. Thanks Bren.
