This isn’t Hollywood. You might not even know if you are hitting your target. You might not get the physical response you imagined. When the police get there, what do you think they will do? What do you think you will do?
Every scenario is different and you should be thinking about what might happen before you are faced with a high-stress situation. But think realistically, because it is not like the movies.
Into the Fray, Episode 28: What Happens in a Gunfight?
It’s not like the movies. In a gunfight, your assailant probably won’t go down with one shot. Therefore, it’s imperative that you keep shooting until the threat stops. Then, call 911.
Be realistic when you think about what might happen in a gunfight. It won’t happen like it does in the movies. And when the gunfight is over, your next step is dealing with police. That won’t be easy either.
