Warning Shot?? It's a Personal Defense Weapon, NOT
a Public Service Tool!!
"When your 'go criteria' are met, you MUST draw your concealed carry and if nothing else has changed, it’s not time to talk, it's time to defend yourself with your loud finger. If that reaction isn’t one smooth ‘muscle memory’, you’re dead! PLEASE NOTICE: I did not say if you draw you must shoot. That’s why I included the “CHANGE” caveat because if the BG turned and ran I would clear the area and then reholster."
"Use your head (your most powerful weapon) and only draw and fire your weapon to save you or someone’s life. This is the only righteous shooting. Anything else will find you in a cage or a box."
In this case, your 'go criteria' wasn't met, you did the correct thing, you dialed 911 rather than draw 1911! I just think your exit strategy was slow in its execution. (No skin in the game, get the f*** outa there!) Your #1 concern should be your wife's safety, then 911.
I'm pretty sure you don't ride a white horse and carry a lance. You don't lead a mounted Cavalry so showing your taillights as you dial 911 is the pure act of courage and chivalry!
Not your game, not your claim! I tried to break up a fight one night on liberty and the two mooks turned on me! That would have been a grim night had I been alone! As it turned out, my three shipmates ragged me later as I enjoyed the medicinal application of draft beer on my fat lip! The waitress got pissed when we started to call “coreman up” to order the following rounds!
