First off let me start off by saying i pray to god i never have to use my firearm to defend myself or a loved one. That said the question i have is Has anybody on the forum ever had to draw their gun and shoot to kill somebody? If so what was the aftermath physically and psychologically? How did you deal with the leos that arrived on scene? What was your first reaction after the shooting? Im not asking for what ifs here im asking for real expierance in the situation that i pray i never have to go through. I have talked with soldiers who have returned from war about the pshyc issues associated with war and conflict most of them due to their training have little problems some others are in therapy for PTSD. Im just wondering from the perspective of the average citizen what happens after wards?
