true, they won’t. closing distance of 21’ takes less than 2 seconds so if they are closer than that, and they come at me, I probably have to shoot. if they’re down on the ground or kneeling, and they get up and come at me despite my yelling at them to stay down, I may have to shoot.
that’s one thing I absolutely don’t do… I’m someone’s greatgrandma and I’m not young enough or fit enough for grappling, nor am I trained for it, so I’m not getting anywhere near them. Getting zip ties on someone is a specialty skill and it’s a dangerous thing to do, even trained officers who do this want a backup at a distance with a drawn firearm. Definitely not something I should be trying with my life on the line.
I’ve gotten distance from them, so I don’t want to give that back.
Even if my hubby is there, I don’t want either of us moving into the “down range” area in front of my gun, so I don’t want him moving over there either.
Plus, if it all goes to heck in a handbasket, I’ve just given him a potential hostage.
Nope, not going anywhere near the bad guy.
May be useful - if they’re rational. If they’re still coming at you despite your drawn firearm staring them in the face, they may not be processing the situation very well and cameras may not make a difference. But maybe they will, so since they’re already inside your house, and you’re not giving away secrets at that point, probably worth a try.
