You'd still shoot?
I'm pretty sure he meant if he's confronted by someone, he's going to draw and fire if he's determined that he is justified.

In your scenario its different being in-home, you can have your weapon in hand without charges of brandishing, etc, obviously he would have reversed the steps of determining the threat and drawing, at that point.
