threat of being disarmed

Hey Mas:
Hypothetically there is an intruder in my home with castle doctrine in place. He is unarmed and average size. I attempt to hold him at gunpoint. He approaches me. I fear he will disarm me and hurt my family. Can I shoot to prevent being disarmed?

Assuming that within the totality of the circumstances it's clear he's going for your gun and capable of disarming you, the generally taught response would be to shoot. These cases sometimes go to trial, because the clueless can't fathom an "unarmed man being shot by an armed man," but a defense team that knows what it's doing will generally prevail.

best,
Mas
