Back to the original question: in a multiple assailant scenario, . . . I long ago decided to deal with each one who moves forward into the fray once I have unholstered.
I am 63, just finished a bout with open heart surgery, . . . I'm not running, and I'm not just going to roll over and play dead. As another poster likes to quip: everyone gets firsts, before anyone gets seconds.
Yes, . . . seconds and even thirds will be served if in fact a bg decides after the first round that he wants to continue his aggression. I will continue to fire until the threat is no more.
I would, however, prefer to get behind cover once the first round of shooting has ended, . . . and await LEO arrival.
May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!
