Front Sight’s Monday Blog: To Shoot or Not to Shoot…

December 13th, 2010  

The video I have for you this week demonstrates what you could be up against if you ever hear your burglar alarm sound in the middle of the night and go looking for the bad guys.

Understand that the most sound advice I can give you should you believe there are burglars in your home is to grab your gun, call 911, hunker down behind some cover in your bedroom (something that will stop a bullet), and wait for them to come to you.

If they force their way into your bedroom, and you feel you are in immediate danger of death or serious bodily injury, shoot to stop them.

If something should compel you to leave your bedroom and go find the intruders, you are placing yourself at a risky disadvantage. You will need to employ proper tactical movement techniques to give yourself any chance of an advantage, especially against multiple intruders in your home. This is why we teach principles of tactics in our four day courses.

Upon moving through your home, should you see an armed intruder pointing a gun at you, what should you do?

As a universal rule of thumb, if your opponent has the ability (a gun) and the opportunity (is close enough to use it) and shows the intent (he has invaded your home and is pointing the gun at you) to seriously injure or kill you, then you are justified in defending yourself with lethal force and YOU SHOULD SHOOT.

With that understanding, watch this video that was captured by a security camera in the home and decide what you would have done.

Remember, you must make the decisions on whether or not you would shoot in such a scenario BEFORE you are placed in a similar one because when the time comes, and it is for real, you won’t have the time to think about it. Any hesitation on your part could cost you your life.

Get the Flash Player to see this video.

So what would you have done?

I can tell you what I would have done and what every one of our instructors would have done: SHOOT!

The only reason this homeowner did not get shot is because his opponent was a gun-carrying home invader who DID NOT have the combat mindset. The home owner was lucky, this time…

Unfortunately, there is no way to know if the person invading your home has the will to kill or not, but if he has a gun and he points it at you, you are placing your life and the lives of your loved ones in the hands of a criminal. Are YOU willing to do that?

Make your decisions now, so you do not hesitate when it counts.
