    Looking at the picture of that azz clown holding his hands in front of his face, with no knife visible, he looked prime for a steam roll right into that counter behind him and then giving him a close up look with his head on that sink.

    Just guessing here, but perhaps he had him at gunpoint at that moment, took a picture also perhaps as he was calling police, then the guy ran.....happened to me once but I was only armed with a pick/adze

    Not everyone is as good a shot as you are. Did you see the article about the cops that shot up the motor-home in California but never touched the occupant. Those cops were more than likely shooting 9mm ammo and I am sure much of it penetrated both sides of the motor-home. Where do you suppose those rounds went after they left the other side of the vehicle? Cops are not necessarily good shots either.

    I always carry at home since as you said police are 20 minutes or more away. Not sure how long the police would take to respond our house but it will probably be over before police arrive.

    Last time I called police after my neighbor was shot it took an hour for the police to show up on scene.The ambulance was sitting down the street for over a half hour waiting for police to show up first and clear the scene. Even though I told the dispatch the suspect had left. He bled to death. Only person who can save you is you.

    To bad the kid wasn't caught, I I personally believe this is a perfect example of the proper use of force. I'm going to catch a lot of hell for this comment, I truly believe a warning shot will suffice in most cases, when possible. Emphasis on when possible. By the way I agreee with coast range, this is a really good reason to have a dog. No one comes to my house with out the dog telling me about it.

    Yes, but be assured when taking the firearms safety course at the local Sherriff's office, they will tell you the "civilian" how you are responsible for every round fired in self defense.

    I was taught that you don't shoot to take a life, you shoot to preserve a life.
