I'm going to get shot.

Bad guy is going to get shot.

My brother is going to get shot.

No matter what happens, . . . it won't have a great eanding.

Any one, two, or all three of those may happen.

What will NOT happen is me standing there watching it happen, knowing full well I have my 1911 on my hip.

I'll first (according to training) start a circling movement away from the weapon, . . . making it a longer move for him to get me than it was before.

I will also talk to him and do every thing I can to distract and confuse him as I am moving, . . . and pulling my weapon.

As soon as I am sure I have him in the 3 dot sights, . . . if he has not relented and run, . . . you can refer to the first three lines.

May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!

Going nowhere and attracting "chest thumping."

One thing about hypotheticals. You can set then up to have any result you want -- including an absolute "no win."
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
