Thanks. I’m with you. And, I love everybody.
The “hard headed” in my initial response is my admission that I understand everybody involved is in a bad place. So, I’m left to communicate best I can which would be open line to 911, followed by exit carefully and gracefully (sub folded pushed or kicked along the ground with my hands visible and unthreatening while passing any actionable information I observed.
You reference Zimmerman - he was/is a clown and I would hate to behave in a manner that justified a comparison. Rather, Stephen Willeford’s actions directly influenced the birth of my project. He was able to stop a shooter from inflicting additional damage before (before is important) responders could arrive. While I may not have the confidence to pick of a bad guy in a crowd with my handgun, I will have much more confidence placing that shot with a long gun.
Best news is that I’m talking about preparation. I have been at events that included shootings (WDC in the 90s), but I have never seen the shooter. I expect that my Sub will never be deployed for its role, but iff it happens in my presence - I have a plan to execute.
