deciding to use deadly force in defence of yourself, your loved ones or your property is not a decision to be taken lightly. a person needs to reflect upon this with serious soul searching and lots of time spent giving it much thought. the outcome is that a person needs to decide if the taking of anothers life is worth it. this decision has to be made by the individual. no one can make that decision for another.

i made this decision many years ago after lots of discussing it with my father who had always kept a firearm for SD. he told me it was a decision i had to make for myself, but he would answer any questions i had. he also told me, that had anyone ever put his family into dangerous situation, he would take their life without hesitation and suffer the consequences later, gladly. he said that using deadly force to protect his loved ones was more important than anything. i have accepted the fact that i might have to use deadly force in protection of my family, and have accepted that i will have to live with it afterwards if it does happen. the lives and safety of my family are more important than the feelings i would afterwards.

someone who wishes to do you harm or harm to your loved ones, has made the decision, to do wrong and to violate your space and liberty. they made a choice also. my choice is that in defence of my loved ones and myself, i will use deadly force if needed, period. i never invited them into my space to violate my safety, my loved ones or our lives. so therefor they have to accept that when they do, i will meet them accordingly.

One of the problems is TO MANY people think RIGHT and GOOD, and WRONG and BAD are synonymous!!!! THEY ARE NOT!!!
You can, and must is some case, do a BAD thing for the RIGHT reasons!! Self defense is an example of this.
Just remember, 'reasonable, articulable fear' is the bases for ALL self defense!!!

So as long as I'm legitimately afraid for my life/family's life, self defense should be justified?

Carrying a fire arm comes with greater responsibility. You could end someone’s life plus land yourself behind bars... Avoid the issue if you can. Try and run away if you can and call 911, but if the threat follows, then yell stop I have a gun and I don’t want any trouble. If the person confronts you and you know there is no way out of the situation then that’s when you pull your firearm. Only as a last resort!

(I ride a motorcycle) I have my handgun in an appropriate bag legally separated (gun separate from magazines etc.) if the need arises can I use it then?
That's a tuff ?... If you really want that answer you should research your areas laws and find out from a seasoned LEO ... Not the rookie save the universe cop... Lol ...
