Assuming he is armed and pointing a gun at you. Good idea. Then toss it to him or kick your wallet on the floor to one side to make him look away from you if that is what he wants.

Much would depend on the environment and surroundings or other family members being present. Whether you could duck behind some furniture, a wall, or take off out a door might be other options.

I thought about this once and would like to hear some straight up honest answers.Personally I think I would give him what he wants then the moment I can draw my gun im going for it, not while dead to rights of course. The only problem is if I shoot this criminal in the back I have just became the one who is going to get prosecuted. So I guess I let him go and cut my losses if he runs away(he hopes)
If you don't have enuff cash to make him happy wright him a fukkin check!!

Most furniture, and walls would not stop a bullet. Actually the only furniture I can think of that MIGHT stop a bullet would be a bookcase full of books.

but any cover is better than no cover. you're right, it might not stop a bullet, but it can slow it down. might mean the difference in wounded by that bullet or dead by it.
