Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

Blah, blah, blah. Whatever. Anyone here wants to follow gunderwood's legal advice on the law of self-defense . . . well, good luck. He's certainly verbose about it. Maybe that will get you off. A little short on the a actual statutes, jury instructions, and case law . . . but, heck, what trial cour...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

Would you prefer to compare IQ numbers or the quality of our educational institutions rather than the issues? I for one don't because to me, the words of wise man on the street are worth more than all the rich/powerful/educated fools of the kingdom combined. Argue with your mind, not your resume. H...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

VA has no such requirement to justify the response as "balanced" or any other BS. Again, VA is NOT MA or other states/countries that have practically banned SD like Great Briton. If you are justified in using deadly force you are justified. That means demonstrating AOI and fear of death o...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

The biggest risk you would face in this instance is there being public outcry from the thug community to charge you with something because most prosecutors won't touch that with a 10ft pole; it's almost a guaranteed loss. E.g. Zimmerman trial. Dear God. Prosecutors LIVE for those kinds of cases. Th...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

This is bad advice. It makes a HUGE difference if the person you shot has an entry wound in the front or the back of his body. While there ARE legitimate reasons why you may have ended up shooting somebody in the back--many of them cited above--to say it simply doesn't matter is ridiculous. You'd b...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

If I make it past the first punch (remember I don't know if it's just one punch or what at that point), in 1-2 seconds my gun is going to be half empty as I'm usually good for ~3-4rnd/sec of aimed center of mass fire at such a close distance That's awesome. Your defense attorney is going to have a ...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

The law in VA is quite clear on these points and you should have nothing to fear. This is utter nonsense. ANY TIME YOU USE DEADLY FORCE, INDEED ANY FORCE, AGAINST ANOTHER PEROSN YOU HAVE PLENTY TO FEAR. PLENTY. Someone whose conduct is 150% consistent with the law is STILL in PLENTY of peril. Even ...

Re: Rifle Twist ratio- pros and cons

Why do you ask? The simple answer is that bullets are spin stabilized vice fin stabilized or some sort of active arrangement. If a projectile is not stable, it won't, by definition, fly point forward into the oncoming air flow. It should be obvious, but to build an accurate projectile system you mus...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

Have any court decisions that I can read myself? I can see your argument, but its hard to swallow, because shooting someone in the back is like rear ending someone with your car: a very strong prima facie case is made that it's your fault, and the criminal was not threatening you any longer. What i...

Re: RA M4A1 vs. Sig M400 question

I don't, but my gut feeling from having used other of their products is that I would trust SIG to build a higher-quality product over Remington, not that either is junk though. Personally, I spend a bit more and get full mil-spec plus some additional features from the likes of Daniel Defense, etc. H...

Re: Magic, huh?

Hydrophobic surfaces are not new and you likely already own similar products. Gore-Tex and all of the similar products are based on hydrophobic materials. As are my favorite synthetic socks, Drymax. Basically the surface of the material or coating repeals water. For Gore-Tex and other "breathab...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

People get in trouble with brandishing because they draw the gun BEFORE AOI are met and they are fearful for their life. The law considers drawing a firearm to intimidate, even a threat, to be brandishing because it's a defacto admission that you don't fear for your life. If someone is trying to kil...

^^^ This. But, I do not think you can shoot if he/she is not harming anyone any more. If it happened in VA, you could arrest them however. You don't know that at the time of the attack.

Re: home protection

The situation is really one that must be adjusted to. In addition, everyone will adjust differently. Yes, the key here is to adjust within parameters that actually work. Choose an effective weapon system that you can accept the risk of using (there always is risk with any system), don't take an eff...

Re: Would you respond with deadly force to an attack like this?

That said, if I were being attacked in a situation like this and was able to react, my first instinct would be to respond with deadly force if I was carrying . I'm curious as to whether other people would feel justified in using a gun in such a circumstance? Why or why not? Absolutely. The key woul...
