I think one of the most important aspects of training is to make decisions on how you would handle a given situation in advance. Feel free to respond to a posted scenario or post your own scenario. Unless otherwise stated all scenarios assume you are armed, have access to a phone and the bad guy does not know you are there. Scenario #1 3 AM, house is dark. You hear creaking floorboards coming from upstairs as someone is trying to move quietly down the hall. You have two teenage daughters in the house with upstairs bedrooms. What do you do? What if the girls aren't supposed to be home? Scenario #2 Man with a small caliber gun gets into the passenger side of your car and says drive. What do you do? Does your decision change if you suspect the gun is fake/pellet gun? Scenario #3 I tried to copy the image from the Humanoid Paper Target thread but it wasn't being very coopertive. At any rate: Post #8 has an image of two shooters (pistol & shotgun) with a friendly behind them. Assuming you are the target of their agression who do you shoot at first? Scenario #4 Bad guy has taken a human shield (think classic hollywood). You are 15' away. Do you take the shot? Does your decision change if you know the person they took to be the shield? Does your decision change if you are 25' away? Does your decision change if the bad guy is not facing you (think you walked into something in progress) Scenario #5 (courtesy of NK777 in the Sheepdog thread) 24 hour quicky mart gas station. I'm in back looking for something to quench my thirst (I love gatorade) because I've been on the road for a long time. Armed robber runs in, points a gun at the clerk, and demands cash. What do you do? Does your decision change if there are 2 armed men?
