IN GENERAL....Most shootings of citizens are by a person known to the victim.. Most shooting distances are within ten feet. Beyond the being shot by someone you know, A car jacking shooter is usually right up against the car. When an incident has gotten to the point of guns being drawn, it is usually an indication that the victim's situational awareness was to low to alert him of the danger signals that lead up to that point. This is not saying that the victim is at fault, but that he missed some warning indicators somewhere along his way.
An old saying heard at many shift changes for patrol officers.... Be polite and professional to all you meet, but have a plan to protect yourself from every person you encounter.
Strive to live up to the opinion that your dog has of you.
