If BG gets his money with no shots fired, i would not shoot nor would i make it known that i was OC, i'd try to stay out of the way and un-noticed.If he shot, weather or not he hit his target, i would shoot. If he is willing to shoot at someone else, there is no garantee that he will not shoot at me on the way out. He has already shown no respect for life if he fires, what makes me think he will spare me in the end?Probably been done here already, oh well.
Say you are in a mini mart at the back of the store and you hear yelling and screaming. You turn to see what it is and see someone is pointing a gun at the cashier. The gunman is acting all wired. You have the upper hand, he doesn't see you. Now what.
Ok, lets change it some. Now he sees you and points it at you, he doesn't know you are armed. Now what.
#3 He just grabbed your wife or child, now what.
You are justified in using deadly force we all know that. This is not intended to start the I'm rite and your wrong thing, play nice.
#2. I play the "scared victim" role until i have a 100%clear shot that i am comfortable with. When he drops his gaurd, or points at someone else, I take my shot.
#3. I beg and plead, empty my pockets, wallet, toss my keys towards him and try my damndest not to let him see my weapon. eventualy he will get distracted. (hopefully) he will look towards other screaming/pleading patrons, watch the door, go back to a register, whatever and i will be able to imediately stop the threat. that is ofcourse ifi can get a clear shot that i am 100% sure that will not hit my loved one or another bystander.
