You may use deadly force against an imminent deadly threat. But what would make you jump into a tank filled with sharks? This is something you should think about BEFORE you are in a situation where you are considering pulling your gun. Yes, you will use force if there is no other alternative and you need to defend yourself or a family member. But, are there any other reasons? Only you will be able to answer that question. Ask it now, before the fight begins.

Is It Worth It?

A deadly force encounter changes your life for the worse. If you can avoid a fight, please, find a way to do so. You have better things to do with your time than deal with the aftermath of a shooting that, while legal and justified, you could have avoided.
