In this edition of Proving Ground, USCCA employee Spencer is taken from work unexpectedly and dropped into a defensive situation directly from real-life headlines. Concealed Carry Magazine Executive Editor Kevin Michalowski gives him specific instructions to purchase a magazine and a bag of popcorn from a gaming store; he’s in a bit of a hurry.

A return at the counter delays him and distracts other customers as things escalate. Then, a violent, knife-wielding attacker takes a woman hostage!

What does Spencer do when confronted with this scenario? Does he pull his gun, hesitate or simply walk away? What would be the legal aftermath of his decision?

After the encounter, Kevin and USCCA Associate Editor Beth Alcazar break down what went well and what went wrong.

What did you think of Spencer’s reaction? And what would you do? Comment below or join the USCCA Community to keep the discussion going.
