Okay so I just took my CC class and one question I forgot to ask him was how to tell police and 911 that you just shoot someone. My father who is also a CC holder said his instructor told him to never tell 911 and police that you just shot the perp but request a '96 hour silence' kind of a deal like cops get when involved in an altercation. They get a paid administrative leave pending a case. I don't think that is a great idea, I believe you should tell the 911 operator and police that you did shoot the bad guy but that you did have a reasonable reason to stop the threat... No you didn't shoot to kill but to stop the suspect from doing harm to you or your family. How would you respond to these questions if asked by police?? I have been carrying for a while now both open and concealed while staying legal. I figured it was time to get my CCW so I can branch out and carry without worrying about a felony and screwing up my chances of carrying. I've been shooting for 14 years and am a current Marine so I can not and do not want to miss out on such an important right. I just want the knowledge from people who have been carrying for some time. Thanks for your input!
