I don't want to sound like some kind of chest beating testosterone freak here, but it's important to remember that solving Problem One (the gunfight, only when it cannot be avoided, of course) trumps solving Problem Two (the court fight). In other words, a bad day in court is still better than a good day in the morgue or a good couple of months in the hospital.
I'm still firmly in the camp of ADEE (avoid, de-escalate/disengage, escape, evade) if at all possible, but if it's not possible then you have to be prepared to deal with the situation as it's presented to you.
Mindset - Skillset - Toolset. In that order!
Attitude and skill will get you through times of no gear, better than gear will get you through times of no attitude and no skill.
