pull your gun and he either runs or drops to the floor and goes to jail, either way, he aint getting the money.
If I pull my gun, somebody is getting shot. Full stop, end of statement.
I practice drawing and firing, not drawing and waiting to see whether the jackass with the screwdriver is overawed by the mere sight of my mighty rod.
If I think he is a threat to my personal safety, or that of a customer in the store, I'll kill him where he stands. If he isn't a threat to me, why not follow 7-11's corporate policy? You may like to think of yourself as the righteous executioner of criminals, but the hood doesn't fit me.
