If someone pulled a knife, bat, gun, whatever out and threatened me with it my gun would be pulled. Maybe they drop whatever they have and run, in which case I don't shoot. Maybe they don't drop it, and continue to threaten. In that case they will get dropped.
But, I'm sure you've been in so many of these situations and understand that there is plenty of time to sit down and have a discussion with the assailant about what his intentions are.
Or maybe you should stop being such a cowboy thinking you live in the wild west with your gun at your hip ready to shoot your way out of any situation.
But, I'm sure you've been in so many of these situations and understand exactly when you need to pull out your gun and shot someone.
