Cowering is not a tactic that I ever heard of used in training.
"Cowering" behind good cover can be an excellent defense!

I shot someone once, as a civilian, and it did not cost me "years of headaches" and "$10s of thousands of dollars".

It did take up hours/days/weeks of my time however.
OK, I could almost buy that, except...

Nope, it involved me returning fire, and hitting, a man who was shooting in to my house from my front yard.

When I read this, my BS meter pegged out. If your literary description is to be believed, the incident would describe you shooting from inside your home, at someone outside your home. Would you have everyone here believe that there was no police investigation ? No questioning of your motive for shooting at someone from inside your home ? No questioning of who shot first? Couldn't the guy outside have simply been returning fire at someone shooting from inside a house ?

This, along with your "kill em all" bravado, is absolutely priceless. With your gift for BS I can see why no charges were ever filed

You don't happen to be a pharmacist do you ?

The technical terminology may be what is throwing you off, it is generally referred to as "cover and concealment" and is taught by virtually every type of training that exists. Don't let the semantics cloud the issue.

Attend me - we don't promote chest thumping rants that get personal.

Also, some of you have done this before. You skirt on thin ice!

Thus, this is closed and user notes will be posted.
