Both very tough questions.
The beating I would have probably have had to try to stop as I picture it if I could have done so without getting anyone else hurt.
The armed robbery is different. If the robber shoots, I may draw if possible. If he is just brandishing to scare I would probably let him go and take the money. Depends on the situation.We can speculate all we want, but you can't really know until it happens. Even then, did you do the right thing?
This is my gun. There are many like her, but this one is mine.
I'm not old. I'm CLASSIC!
