This is more of an "If" question. We obviously want to be prepared for any and all situations, but "If" you drew in time for the attacker to see it.

Sorry--I forgot to specifically answer that. Yes, I think that most rational people (even BGs) would halt and retreat once they realize that they brought a knife to what is going to be a gunfight unless they check themselves. Logic doesn't apply to drug addicts or psychotics though.

I know the question brings up a lot of various experiences, varying laws, varying circumstances, and would probably, if answered in it's entirety, be able to be written in a textbook. I appreciate your answer though. I have found this thread to be very thought provoking.......

If the B g is armed and I feel my life or others lives are at risk I draw to shoot to kill ( I never was good at show and tell in school ). If you decide to carry then you should practice, practice , practice and I don't just mean shooting at paper you should practice your draw. alot of people fail to practice that and alot of times their own weapon is used against them. Only you will know if and when you are ready to carry !!

You should try to avoid confrontations, but you should carry concealed for the times the bad guys don't allow you to avoid a confrontation.

The 4 Laws of Gun Safety: 4 Laws of Gun Safety
The 2nd law is key to this string:
-- 2nd Law - Never Point The Gun At Something You Are Not Prepared To Destroy!

Doesn't say scare- Word is Destroy

I always remember the scary movies where the good guy is talking or taking his time and the BG is still alive or something and you are saying..kill him--watch out !!

Practice and think: Destroy- not talk, not maybe they'll go away if I show them, blaa

Favorite Saying from somebody was: In stressful situations we do not rise to the occasion, we fall to our level of training

Fear is a byproduct of that which is to be destroyed. Self-preservation tends to do that. Draw a gun, they run. If they continue, pull the trigger.

What I'm trying to say, I guess, comes down to Tue likelihood that someone u draw a gun on will run in dependence of the aesthetic of the gun. Will a subcompact .45 get the same response as a full-size .22lr? It's more a hypothetical than anything.

Most everyone knows you should not draw unless u have no other choice. And if u draw, it better be to fire. I guess I was just getting a little to psychological here...... Mindsets rather than actual beliefs. It's interesting to see what people are saying. Thanks for taking part in this thread. I appreciate it even though the topic is kind of weird and sounds stupid.
