If you are in a situation that could potentially get ugly, in your opinion, when should you discharge your weapon? A friend was telling me that if you are in a situation where you pull your gun, you should be firing that gun basically. As in, you shouldn't pull it to try and intimidate the attacker but instead pull it and discharge it to stop the attack. What are your thoughts? Like in a given scenario at what point is the line crossed and you have to shoot? Particularly when the situation is a little murky or unsure. Like a person isn't overtly trying to kill you(yet) etc. So like maybe a guy is yelling at you from his car and he threatens to like stab you. He hasn't brandished a knife yet etc. but if he hopped out his car with a knife and started walking towards you, is that a shoot moment?
