That's certainly true-but after receiving fire, I suspect many reasonable folks would 'reflexively' continue the fight until the opponent was neutralized.

I had an instructor once who used to say, "It's important you can slow down as fast as you can speed up" in lethal force incidents; I suspect that's easier said than done sometimes.

He who fights and runs away had better run pretty damn fast.
